Violence has erupted in Washington, D.C., as pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 6.
President-elect Joe Biden addressed the nation in a press conference and asked outgoing President Trump to put an end to what is being called an attempted coup.
"I call on President Trump to go on national television now and fulfill his oath and defend the constitution," demanded Biden.
After hours of disorder, Trump finally released a video on Twitter urging the protesters to "go home."
As of now, thousands of violent protesters remain outside the Capitol waving Trump flags and chanting "U-S-A, U-S-A".
Lawmakers were rushed out of the Capitol earlier today when demonstrators breached the building.
ABC reported shortly after that a woman was shot in the chest and rushed to the hospital.
