Donald Trump has vowed there will be an “orderly transition” on 20 January when Joe Biden is sworn into office – just hours after hundreds of his supporters stormed the US Capitol Building.

The New York Times reports that the president has discussed pardoning himself on several occasions, though it is unclear if the topic was broached after Wednesday’s attack on Congress.

Mr Trump’s Twitter was suspended after he posted several tweets flagged for inciting violence, including calling rioters “great patriots”. He has been indefinitely banned from Facebook and Instagram.

Congress resumed its work certifyingp president-elect Biden's Electoral College win late on Wednesday night after the chaotic scenes on Capitol Hill, with debate stretching into the early hours of Thursday.

On Thursday, House members began circulating a draft of articles of impeachment, while a growing number of lawmakers voiced support for Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution and remove the president from office.

Police confirmed four people have died in the insurrection attempt, including one woman who was shot by Capitol Police, and more than 50 arrests were made.
