Biden's Cabinet gradually confirmed by Senate MORE’s Electoral College victory.

Trump on Wednesday gave a speech at a rally of his supporters on the National Mall in which he encouraged his supporters to march to the Capitol and demand that Congress only count the electors who were "lawfully slated." 

Following his remarks, a mob of his supporters breached security at the Capitol and made their way toward both chambers of Congress, forcing media, lawmakers and Capitol staff to evacuate. 

The evacuation halted a debate about an objection to Arizona’s electors brought by Rep.

Rioters did damage to the Capitol along the way including breaking windows, breaking into offices and defacing statues. Five people ultimately died, including a Capitol police officer and a woman who was shot inside the Capitol.

Shortly after 8 p.m., the two chambers were able to reconvene and the Electoral College vote was certified in the early hours of Thursday morning. Dozens of arrests have been made, and federal charges have been brought on at least 13 rioters.

Only after the events on Wednesday did Trump condemn the violence in a video Thursday after Congress certified Biden’s victory. He said there would be “an orderly transition of power” on Jan. 20. 

Prior to his Thursday video statement, the president said, “we will never never concede,” and in two separate tweets encouraged rioters to go home but repeated unsupported claims of widespread voter fraud.
