The U.S. Capitol was engulfed in chaos on Wednesday, as supporters of President Donald Trump, responding to his call to head there, breached the complex, resulting in violence in the seat of America's federal government.

The surreal and dangerous scene interrupted proceedings in the House and Senate, as members of Congress were taking up President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victory.

Michiganders are reacting in very different ways to the announcement that former Vice President Joe Biden has been declared the projected winner of the 2020 presidential election.

At a noon hour rally at the state capitol, hundreds of flag waving supporters of President Donald Trump remained defiant.
