The protest of pro-Trump supporters at the United States’ Capitol Hill has gotten the attention of many world leaders and earned the outgoing president a level of fame, this time negatively.
Nations that are strong allies of the US like the United Kingdom and Canada have condemned this development which they fear to be a threat to one of the world’s most refined democracies.
The protesters, even after it became glaring that President-elect Joe Biden emerged the projected winner of the poll, have continued to reject the election, describing it as being massively rigged.
In reaction to this position coupled with the way Capitol Hill was stormed by these protesters, Boris Johnson of the UK has referred to the situation as very disgraceful.
On his Twitter page, Johnson said:
“Disgraceful scenes in U.S. Congress. The United States stands for democracy around the world and it is now vital that there should be a peaceful and orderly transfer of power.”
On his part, the Canadian leader, Justin Trudeau, said that his fellow citizens are disturbed by recent happening that has characterised the US election, but expressed hopes that in the end democratic processes, not violence, will win.
Trudeau’s message on Twitter read:
“Canadians are deeply disturbed and saddened by the attack on democracy in the United States, our closest ally and neighbour. Violence will never succeed in overruling the will of the people. Democracy in the US must be upheld – and it will be.”
Meanwhile, the US on Thursday, January 7, finally confirmed the victory of President-elect Biden after several hours of debate halted by some pro-Trump supporters who stormed Capitol Hill.
The protesters had rejected the outcome of the last presidential election and on Wednesday, January 6, made their presence felt around the area.
This did not stop the confirmation as objections to drop Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania’s electoral votes for Biden were dismissed by the Senate and the House of Congress.
