On January 6th, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building in Washington DC where a Joint Session of Congress to certify the election of Joe Biden was taking place.
CNN reported that multiple officers have been injured at the Capitol with at least one transported to the hospital.
Vice President, Mike Pence, tweeted: “The violence and destruction taking place at the Capitol Building Must Stop and it Must Stop Now.”
People on Twitter have been comparing the raids to the film “Olympus Has Fallen” which depicts a fictional attack on the White House.
What is Olympus has Fallen about?
Olympus Has Fallen tells the story of a North Korean-led attack on the White House.
The protagonist is disgraced United States Secret Service agent Mike Banning, who attempts to rescue U.S. President Benjamin Asher.
The film stars Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman, and people have been taking to Twitter to compare Olympus Has Fallen to the current raids taking place at the Capitol Building in Washington DC.
