Former US President George W. Bush said that the violence in Washington is disgusting and unfortunate, commenting on the storming of the US Congress, according to an urgent news broadcast by Al Arabiya a short while ago.
Former US President George W. Bush added: This is how the election results are contested in the banana republic and not in a democracy.
Earlier, demonstrators who supported the US President, Donald Trump, stormed the courtyards of Congress where the confirmation session was on Biden’s victory, according to urgent news for Al Arabiya..
And renewed clashes in the vicinity of the Congress building between the police and a number of protesters who are Trump supporters. A number of Trump supporters stormed the police barricades around the Congress building.
Biden won the elections with a majority of 306 votes against 232 in the electoral college for each state separately, and with a margin of more than seven million ballot papers in the nationwide popular vote. But the Republican president still claims falsely that there is widespread fraud and that he is the winner.
State and union reviews refute Trump’s allegations of massive election fraud even as increasingly desperate legal efforts on the part of his campaign and his allies over the right to cancel elections in various courts all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court have failed..
Biden is scheduled to assume the presidency on January 20.
