Before the inauguration ceremony of US elected president Joe Biden on January 20, security measures in the capital Washington were increased.
At the ceremony to be held in front of the Congress on January 20, local and federal security forces were put on high alert in the capital Washington, due to concerns that some groups might organize armed actions and opposition groups might clash.
The number of National Guard deployed from many states for Washington’s security has been increased to 20,000.
The National Guard was deployed in and around Congress.
On the other hand, the National Mall, which includes the area to be held for the ceremony and constitutes the city center, was closed to visitors within the framework of precautions.
Trump supporters raided Congress
Tens of thousands of demonstrators supporting Trump gathered in Washington’s National Park on January 6 and marched to the US Congress.
A group of demonstrators who crossed the police barricades entered the Congress and images that caused indignation in the country appeared.
In the clashes, 5 people, one of whom was a police officer, died and the US National Guard units were sent to Congress to suppress the incidents.
Following the events, Democrat Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi called on US Vice President Mike Pence to dismiss Trump under Article 25 of the Constitution for instigating the events.
Pence, on the other hand, stated in the letter he sent to Pelosi yesterday that he would not apply this article.
