British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the latest actions of U.S. President Donald Trump and called the behavior of his supporters at the Capitol on January 6 “disgraceful,” reports media
“The fact that he (Donald Trump, – ed.) incited people to storm the Capitol, and as president constantly expressed doubts about the result of free and fair elections, I think it was completely wrong,” Johnson believes.
The British prime minister stressed that he condemned the violence in Washington and called the actions of Trump supporters “disgraceful.”
“I am glad that the president-elect is now duly confirmed and democracy has won,” the politician concluded.
The U.S. Congress was scheduled to approve the results of the presidential election on Wednesday, but the session was abruptly adjourned because supporters of incumbent President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building and rioted.
Law enforcement was forced to use tear gas and stun grenades. Under unclear circumstances, Air Force veteran Ashley Babbitt died of a gunshot wound at the government compound. Three other deaths have been reported near the Capitol.
The alleged perpetrator of Babbitt’s death was subsequently placed on leave pending an investigation into the incident.
