Sight Intelligence Group CEO Rita Katz told the newspaper that Trump supporters have moved from the slogan “We must win” to the slogan “This battle is going to be long.” Analysts at the company that monitors extremist groups and the information platforms that support them say most of the groups whose members have been observed during the massacre in the US capital agree that the conflict will continue after Jan.20, when power passes to Biden.
