Live: Fencing is installed to protect US Capitol after violence.

Fencing is installed around the U.S. Capitol after hundreds of President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the building on Wednesday.

Officials in Washington DC are bracing for clashes in the streets on Wednesday as thousands of pro-Trump supporters arrive to protest the presidential election and cheer on challenges of the Electoral College in Congress.

President Trump in several tweets has called his supporters to gather in the country’s capital for “wild” protests, sparking fears of trouble between proponents and critics of the president.

Three groups have submitted permits to the National Parks Service (NPS) to hold demonstrations Tuesday and Wednesday, calling on Congress to move toward overturning the election in Trump’s favour. The NPS has approved all three as of Monday night.

Permits were approved for Women For America First's “March for Trump” at the Ellipse on Wednesday, for the Eighty Percent Coalition's “Rally for Revival” in Freedom Plaza on Tuesday and for The Silent Majority's protest on the National Mall on Tuesday and Wednesday.
