A massive security operation is underway following the incident in the US capital this evening.

 

US special forces are on high alert as Mr Trump takes over as 45th President of the United States on Friday, January 20, 2017.

 

It comes as the radical left announced it is planning riots in Washington DC to cause chaos on the run up to president elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

According to websites run by organisers, they will take to the streets in mass protests.
