Biden calls on Trump to give national TV address to end supporters’ mob ‘siege’ at Capitol

President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday emotionally condemned the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol as a mob insurrection that “borders on sedition” and implored President Donald Trump to go on national television to “demand an end to this siege.”

“This is not dissent. It’s disorder. It’s chaos. It borders on sedition and it must end now,” Biden said during a brief address from Wilmington, Delaware. “I call on this mob to pull back and allow the work of democracy to go forward.”

“To storm the capitol, to smash windows, to occupy offices, the floor of the United States Senate, rummaging through desks … threatening the safety of duly elected officials,” he added. “It’s not protests. It’s insurrection.”
