BOGOTA, January 11. /TASS/. The latest developments in the United States show that American society is sorely divided, with the country on the brink of a civil war, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said during a speech in Caracas Sunday.
"The United States is in a crisis. <…> Joe Biden’s term as president will start under the worst scenario which includes hostile polarization, a split, animosity and confrontation. Virtually on the verge of a civil war," he noted.
On January 6, Trump supporters stormed into United States Capitol in Washington DC to stop lawmakers from officially certifying the results of the November presidential election in a last-ditch attempt to prevent Democrat Joe Biden from becoming the new president. One protester was shot dead during the unrest. In addition, three others died, yet the causes of their deaths were qualified as medical emergencies. Biden’s inauguration is scheduled for January 20.
