Meetings in the US House of Representatives have resumed after being blocked by a mob.

The meeting resumed shortly after President Trump’s supporters were removed from the US Capitol.

At that meeting, the work of certifying President-elect Joe Biden as President continued.

The parliamentary debate had to be halted after Trump supporters suddenly entered the House.

The protesters smashed the windows of the building and clashed with police.

In this process, the police shot and killed a female protesters has been reported.

Trump banned by Facebook and Twitter

Twitter has banned Trump’s account from tweeting for 12 hours after he tweeted in support of supporters of the attack on the parliament building.

In his tweets, Trump wrote “I love you” before telling the supporters to go home.

Three of Trump’s tweets have been removed by Twitter for serious violations of his policy.

Twitter has clarified that his account should have been closed if he did not do so.

Even Facebook mentions its own policy, making it impossible for Trump to write anything on his page 24 hours a day.

Earlier, Trump blocked video messages from his supporters from being broadcast on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Former presidents opened their mouths

Former US presidents have criticized it after the uproar in parliament.

BARACK OBAMA: History will remember today’s event as a provocation by the incumbent president who repeatedly told baseless lies about the outcome of the legitimate election. It will be remembered as a day of great disgrace and shame for the country.

Will Clinton: A four-year toxic politics of coercive misinformation, a reflection of mistrust that is pitting Americans against one another.

George W. Bush: Such controversy over the election results takes place in the Republic (unstable political system), not in our democratic republic … It is staged by the behavior of some careless political leader.

Will the cabinet remove Trump?

According to the BBC’s partner CBS News, there is talk that Trump’s cabinet could revive the 25th amendment to the constitution.

Such an arrangement is revived when the president is unable to carry out his responsibilities. And the president’s responsibilities shift.

In such a case, a majority of ministers and Vice President Mike Pence could write letters to parliamentary leaders saying Trump is incompetent and make the vice president acting president.

Such a system has not been revived since 1967. And so far Pence has been formally informed of something like that.

Resignations

White House Assistant Press Secretary Sarah Mathews has resigned amid growing political turmoil.

He wrote in a statement: “As a person who has worked in the House of Representatives of the Congress, what I have seen today has shocked me.”

Earlier in the day, First Lady Millenia Trump’s Chief of Staff Stephanie Grissam resigned.

Attack after two words

Wednesday’s attack on the US Capitol was the first since the 1812 war, according to US Capital Historical Society experts.

In 1814, the British invaded DC and set fire to a building under construction.
