Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was escorted by police from a terminal inside Washington’s Ronald Reagan National Airport after a group of Donald Trump supporters chanted “traitor” and shouted “you work for us” after condemning Donald Trump’s response to a violent mob on the U.S. Capitol and unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud.

“One day you won’t be able to walk in the streets,” a woman shouts in a video shared by Politico’s Daniel Lippman. “Today is the day. ”
In another video, a woman calls him a “garbage human being” and asks him to “check the vote”, following calls from the president and his allies.
“You better take advantage of GITMO,” she shouts.
The independent asked for the senator’s comment.
Senator Graham, who has been one of the president’s most trusted allies in Congress, said Mr. Trump must accept responsibility for his role in the violence that raped the Capitol and terrorized lawmakers and staff on the 6th. January, as a joint session sought to officially count the Electoral College votes in an election in which the president repeatedly said his supporters had been “stolen” from them.
He calls the president’s behavior “self-inflicted injury”.
“When it comes to accountability, the president must understand that his actions were the problem and not the solution,” the senator said at a press conference Thursday.
He also said that “a good friend of mine, Rudy Giuliani” – the president’s personal lawyer who fought a false and failed legal battle to overturn the election results before shouting at a crowd on Wednesday for a “trial by fight »-« did not Help me. ”
“Trump and I have had a hell of a trip. I hate that it ends like this, ”said Senator Graham. “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are legally elected and will become President and Vice President of the United States on January 20.”
The protests at the airport echoed on social media, with the president’s unconditional support believing he had been compromised to admit defeat or was outraged that he turned the crowd he inspired.
After encouraging his supporters to march to the Capitol, sparking an insurgency attempt in the halls of Congress as he sought to overturn the election results, the president took to social media after being suspended from his duties accounts.
“Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and chaos,” he said in a brief video message.
He said the rioters “who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy.”
