President-elect Joe Biden called on President Donald Trump to go on television to demand an end to what he called a “siege” of the U.S. Capitol.

“The scenes of chaos at the Capitol do not reflect a true America,” Biden said Wednesday in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware. “They do not represent who we are. What we are seeing is a small number of extremists dedicated to lawlessness.”
