In the last days of his term, US President Donald Trump has once again called on his supporters to protest the election results.
US President Donald Trump released a video in which he calls on his supporters to demonstrate on January 6, when the election victory of Joe Biden is to be confirmed by Congress.
Trump also wrote on his Twitter page yesterday that the demonstration should take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday to “prevent election theft.”
A group of Republican U.S. senators led by Ted Cruz also announced opposition to the confirmation of the results of the presidential election in the U.S. Congress.
According to the CNN news network, some Republicans in the House of Representatives and now a Republican in the Senate plan to object when Vice President Mike Pence formally announces the winner of the 2020 US election.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump has surprisingly departed from Florida. It is suspected that he wants to prepare for the official reading of the election winner in Congress.
At the joint session of the House of Representatives and the Senate, the election victory of Democrat Joe Biden is to be formally confirmed next Wednesday.
With the United States about two weeks away from Biden’s inauguration, experts and critics say Trump’s goal is to incite his supporters to protest, create unrest and use violence to change the election outcome.
