US President-elect Joe Biden has said that the chaotic scenes at the US Capitol “do not represent who we are”. Biden, who is just days away from his inauguration, called it disorder and not dissent.
“Let me be very clear: the scenes of chaos at the Capitol do not represent who we are. What we are seeing is a small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness. This is not dissent, it’s disorder. It borders on sedition, and it must end. Now,” Biden said on Twitter.
