The events that took place in Washington DC on Wednesday shocked the world as violent Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overturn the election results in favour of the president.

Thousands gathered in the US capital on the day that the Senate was set to meet to debate the election of Joe Biden, which has since been confirmed. Shortly after the crowd had heard a speech from Donald Trump, a small army descended upon the Capitol building and forced their way inside and eventually reaching the chamber.

Their violent actions left four people dead and the world stunned by what had just taken place. Many world leaders, from Boris Johnson to Scott Morrison condemned what they had seen as had many former members of Trump's administration including Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer and John Bolton. Even vice-president Mike Pence spoke out against the violence.

Some of Trump's family members did call for the riot to stop but used choice words like 'patriots' and told them to 'not act like the other side.' Trump himself was mostly quiet on the situation but did eventually release a video on Twitter where he spouted more voter fraud claims, told the rioters that he "loved them" but asked them to now "go home." The video has since been deleted by Twitter.

In comparison, many elected officials, many of whom have supported Trump in the past and his claims about election fraud offered far more damning statements about the riot, some even calling them involved 'terrorists' and 'criminals' while others directly criticised Trump's rhetoric and likened the scenes in US capital to a 'banana republic.' It should be said that some comments were stronger than others and some have shared conspiracy theories linking Antifa to the attacks.

These are all the elected Republican officials from the Senate, House and state governors, who have condemned what they saw.
