President-elect of the United States of America Joe Biden has denounced the storming of the Capitol on Wednesday as the violent expression of President Donald Trump’s refusal to accept his defeat, calling it “an assault on the citadel of liberty “and saying the president had stoked the mob with his brazen and false claims that the 2020 election had been stolen.

According to the media reports, in a direct, forceful language, President-elect of the United States of America Biden called the scenes of chaos in the halls of Congress “a dark moment” in the nation’s history.

He appealed for calm and made clear that he held Trump accountable for instigating violence that left members of both parties and allies around the world appalled.

United States Senator from South Carolina in his tweet said that Biden and Harris are lawfully elected.

He wrote:

“I prayed Joe Biden would lose. He won. He’s the legitimate president of the United States. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lawfully elected and will become the president and vice president of the United States on January 20th.”

Lindsey Graham further said:

“The US Senate must reconvene today and finish our constitutional work. Calling for federal officials to form a task force to identify those who breached the Capitol, vandalized our national institutions, and expect prosecutions to the fullest extent of the law. Very grateful to front line police but incredibly upset those in charge lost control of the US Capitol. Will not let this go unchallenged.”
