Breaking: Trump faces more attacks as Mike Pence declares Joe Biden winner of US Presidential Election – Report

Vice President Mike Pence has declared Democrat Joe Biden the winner of the presidential election after Congress counted the electoral votes after a violent day at the Capitol. Pence also announced that Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) was the winner of the vice presidency., Washingtonpost Reports.

Early Thursday morning, the Senate and House had voted to reject Trump loyalists’ challenges to Biden’s win in Pennsylvania. Congress resumed the count after a pro-Trump mob had attacked the Capitol.

In rare remarks from the Senate dais, Pence, who earlier in the day had rebuffed Trump’s demands to intervene in the count, had said, “Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house.”

In a letter to colleagues hours after the siege at the Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) described the attack as “a shameful assault … on our democracy. It was anointed at the highest level of government. It cannot, however, deter us from our responsibility to validate the election of Joe Biden.”
