‘Darkest Day Of Our Nation’s History’, Maltese-American Politicians Speak Out After Pro-Trump Riots Sees Four People Dead At Capitol Hill

Maltese-Americans politician have spoken out after a violent riots attempt by pro-Trump rioters at Capitol Hill resulted in four people dead.

Four people have died after pro-Trump rioters stormed Capitol Hill yesterday.

The world watched in shock as supporters of President Trump breached Capitol Hill where lawmakers met to confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s win.

Amidst the chaos, which included armed standoffs with police, a woman was shot and later died as a result of her wound. 

She was later identified as 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt, a staunch supporter of President Trump and an Air Force veteran.

Moreover, according to Washington D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee, three more people died in “medical emergencies”.

“Any loss of life in the District is tragic and our thoughts are with anyone impacted by their loss,” Contee said at a news conference Wednesday night.

Police officials also seized two pipe bombs outside the Democratic National Committee and outside the Republican National Committee. The devices were rendered safe by the FBI but investigations are ongoing.

The attempted coup brought a sudden halt to the Congressional hearing with lawmakers having to be evacuated out of the building.

It was incited in part by President Trump urging his supporters to fight against the counting of the electoral votes at a rally held in D.C. just hours earlier.

Since the, President Trump’s Twitter has been suspended and could face a permanent ban for “repeated and severe violations of our civic integrity policy” following yesterday’s violent riots.
