The supporters of the outgoing US President Donald Trump have wreaked havoc in the nation’s capital leaving four people dead.

One man, wearing an American flag around his neck, can be seen heaving camera equipment into the air and smashing it onto a pile of the seized equipment.  

In another video, the enraged Trump loyalists chant “CNN sucks” while they vandalise cameras and other media equipment.

Nothing even remotely close to this sort has been witnessed in recent memory. It has been reported how Congressmen had to be evacuated as pro-Trump supporters breached security and entered the Capitol US in Washington DC. Capitol Hill is where the US Senate and House of Representatives are seated at. The Trump supporters have also breached the US Senate Chamber and have taken over the gallery.
