[CBC뉴스] 도널드 트럼프 미국 대통령 지지자 수십 명이 8일(현지시간) 조 바이든의 승리를 공식화하는 투표를 마친 뒤 로널드 레이건 내셔널 공항에서 린지 그레이엄 상원의원을 향해 배신자라고 외쳤다.
지난 6일(현지시간) 트럼프는 수천 명의 지지자들에게 국회의사당까지 행진하라고 권하면서 군중들이 건물을 부수는 등 혼란스러운 장면이 연출되기도 했다.
Dozens of supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump's called Senator Lindsey Graham a "traitor" at Ronald Reagan National Airport on Friday (January 8) after voting to formalize the victory of Democrat President-elect Joe Biden.
On Wednesday (January 6) Trump exhorted thousands of followers to march to the Capitol, prompting a chaotic scene in which crowds breached the building, forced the evacuation of both chambers and left a police officer and four others dead in their wake.
Trump allies, including Senator Lindsey Graham and the House Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, had urged Democrats to shelve talk of impeachment to avoid further division.
"If Speaker Pelosi pushes impeachment in the last days of the Trump presidency it will do more harm than good," Graham said on Twitter.
Congress certified Biden's election victory early on Thursday (January 7), after authorities cleared the Capitol. Even after the violence, more than half of House Republicans and eight Republican senators voted to sustain objections to some states' results, backing Trump.
