A public emergency has been declared in the capital city of the United States, Washington DC. The mayor of Washington DC has directed that the emergency will stay for 15 days.
“President Trump continues to fan rage and violence by contending that the Presidential election was invalid,” according to a statement from Mayor Bowser’s office.
“I have issued Mayor’s Order 2021-003, extending the public emergency declared earlier today for a total of 15 days, until and unless provided for by further Mayoral Order,” Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted.
