President-elect Joe Biden told President Donald Trump to "step up," go on national television, and condemn the protests at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday afternoon. On Wednesday, protestors forcefully stormed the U.S. Capitol to prevent Congress from certifying Biden's election as president. Biden will take the oath of office on January 20.
