Congress confirms Joe Biden as president-elect after Trump supporters stormed US Capitol building

Speaking at the end of a joint session of Congress, Vice President Mike Pence confirmed that Biden’s term will begin on January 20.

A group of GOP lawmakers made a last-ditch effort to stall the certification process by challenging election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania. Both attempts were resoundingly defeated by Congress.

The session was disrupted on Wednesday afternoon, as lawmakers were rushed to safety when a large crowd of Trump supporters broke into the Capitol building and clashed with police.
