- Former White House Chief of Staff
45th President of the United States
Following his loss in the 2020 presidential election to Biden, Trump refused to concede and initiated an extensive campaign to overturn the results, making false claims of widespread electoral fraud.
On January 6, 2021, during a rally at The Ellipse, Trump urged his supporters to ”fight like hell” and march to the Capitol, where the electoral votes were being counted by Congress in order to formalize Biden’s victory.
A mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, suspending the count as Vice President Mike Pence and other members of Congress were evacuated.
On January 13, the House voted to impeach Trump an unprecedented second time for ”incitement of insurrection,” but he was later acquitted by the Senate again on February 13, after he had already left office.
