Donald Trump’s presidency came to a close Wednesday on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, the same hallowed ground where he swore, during his inauguration, to bring an end to “American carnage.” Instead, he brought the violence of desolation home, inciting an unruly mob of extremists and conspiracists to storm the sanctum of U.S. government in a seditious attempt to hold power. 

With a few detestable exceptions, Republican lawmakers disavowed their support for Trump’s coup, certifying the election of Joe Biden. White House officials are resigning. A new administration will begin in less than two weeks. But the damage that has been done to America’s democracy will be lasting. 

At Fast Company, we will continue to cover the story of this unprecedented moment in a bid to understand how the fallout will manifest in the future of politics, business, and technology. Will Trump be held responsible for the desecration of the nation’s capital? Can the social networks that enabled the riots be reformed? And what of the battle to contain the coronavirus, which killed nearly 4,000 people yesterday? Stay with us for all this, and more, in the days to come.
