Six persons arrested as pro-Trump protesters clash with police in Washington – Reports

A mass demonstration in support of outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington, D.C. escalated into clashes with the police, resulting in the arrest of six people, U.S. media reported on Wednesday.

U.S. Congress is due to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election later in the day.

Trump supporters have been flocking to Washington from all across the country since the weekend to attend the rally and demand that pro-Biden electoral votes in swing states not be accounted for due to violations in the electoral process.
As reported by Fox News, a rally on Tuesday night began peacefully but escalated into clashes with people opposed to Trump and police officers, who fired tear spray repeatedly.
