In the aftermath of the invasion by pro-Trump activists of the Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, the capital Washington is experiencing a return to calm. The neighborhood was placed under close surveillance after an overnight curfew. Police made 52 arrests, and the US Congress certified Joe Biden’s victory. Donald trump became more isolated than ever. The outgoing president is deprived of a Twitter account and forced to speak on the account of one of his spokespersons. If he still disputes the outcome of the election, Trump accepts for the first time the idea of having lost: “anyway, there will be an orderly transition on January 20“he posted Thursday, January 7 on the account of Dan Scavino.
Trump was let go by his vice president, Mike Pence, who refused to block Joe Biden’s certification of victory. “To those who caused trouble in our capital, you did not win, violence never wins“, did he declare. The two Democratic candidates for the Senate in Georgia have won, and shifted the majority to Joe Biden’s side. With this new success, the elected president will now have all the powers.
