US Ambassador Joseph N Mondello.

It’s being described as “one of the darkest days in U-S history” after hundreds of armed supporters of president trump stormed the capitol building yesterday, killing at least four people and forcing the senate to evacuate. 

The united states ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago says their country should not be defined by yesterday’s tragic event but by how well they bounce back.

Meanwhile, a local political analyst believes it serves as an important lesson for other countries.
