In the background, President Trump is seen on the video waiting to go out onstage. Later, during a speech of more than an hour, the president made false claims about alleged ballot fraud swindling him out of an electoral victory over Biden.
Trump also had urged the crowd to help him “fight” Biden's confirmation as the winner, and to march to Congress after the rally. When the crowd did so, thousands of people swarmed around the Capitol complex, and shoved past Capitol police to swarm through the halls of Congress, occupying the Senate chamber and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office, among others lawmakers' offices.
One of the invaders, a woman, was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer. Another Capitol police officer died Thursday after being hit by a rioter with a fire extinguisher.
Three other people died during the melee, which has led to calls for Trump to be removed from office, less than two weeks before his term ends. Devon blamed Trump's rhetoric for contributing to the violence.

'S video pans around the backstage area, where a woman who appeared to be White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany smiled as she took a photo of television monitors showing the crowd outside. Said at one point to Guilfoyle on the video, where she can be seen dancing and shimmying to the music.
“I think we're at T-minus a couple of seconds here, guys, so tune in and check it out,” Donald Jr. White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows then appears behind him, broadly grinning and giving a thumbs-up to the camera.

Then pans the camera to capture his sister Ivanka Trump, who is a senior White House advisor, who smiles and waves at him.

Later in the day, as Congress debated Republican objections to the electoral votes and pro- Trump protesters broke through police lines and tried to storm the Capitol itself, Trump Jr. Raphael Warlock stunned the GOP with two apparent upsets in Georgia's Senate runoffs, defeating multimillionaire incumbents David Purdue and Kelly Offer.
'S remarks appear aimed at a faction of conservatives who have over the last two months resisted the president's doomed efforts to sow doubt in the public about the Democratic process and rewrite the results of the election he lost. “The president's addiction to every conspiracy theory has pushed out the middle independents, and disenfranchised soft Republicans.
“Turns out if the leader of a party spends two months actively delegitimizing elections and saying voting doesn't matter, voters listen,” the operative said, adding: “There was one decisive factor in Georgia and anyone who says otherwise is probably sharing substances with Lin Wood.” Wood, a Georgia attorney and Trump ally, has in recent weeks pumped up the Trump base with bizarre QAnon conspiracy theories, arguing that Vice President Mike Pence's resistance to throwing out Electoral College votes was equivalent to treason, and suggesting that Pence should be executed.
Wood told Salon in a recent phone call that he had heard rumors about Pence having sex with children, a libelous and scurrilous claim that has evident roots in QAnon lore. As the Georgia runoffs approached, Trump chose instead to throw his energy into pushing false claims that the state's election system was rigged and attacking its Republican leaders, a narrative that fit his misguided attempts to overturn his own historic defeat in the Peach State.
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have been White House employees, senior advisers to the president and, after he leaves office, will be looking for new work.

In his first tweet back following his temporary ban after the Capitol riot, Trump tweeted on Jan. 8 “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. !” It showed that Trump had really learned nothing during his time out, and would keep using his Twitter platform to possibly incite more violence via his supporters.
