Capitol chaos

The storming of the Capitol was met by widespread responses of condemnation, even from many who once supported Trump. A Wall Street Journal editor summed up the day: “President Trump’s term, which began with Republicans fully in charge of Washington and the promise of a new kind of populist leadership, effectively came to an end Wednesday with his party aflame and out of power, some of its top leaders excoriated by a president they had loyally supported, and a mob of Trump supporters occupying and vandalizing the Capitol.” [1]
