A state of emergency remains in place in Washington until Joe Biden’s inauguration on 20 January after a day of violence that saw supporters of Donald Trump storm the US Capitol, with the attack having been incited by Trump. One protestor was shot inside the Capitol and later died, while three other protestors died as a result of medical emergencies. Once the Capitol was cleared, Congress continued its counting of Electoral College votes, formally certifing Biden as US president in an early morning sitting. Biden said the attack bordered on sedition, while former Republican president George W. Bush condemned the protestors and the politicians who "inflamed them".
