Witness news stopped at two locations in Starbucks, both of which had signs on their windows indicating that they were temporarily closed.

Meanwhile, some state capitols have been closed, fenced, and additional police have been set up in state capitols across the United States to prepare for potentially violent demonstrations in the coming days.
Enhanced security measures have been taken from the type of violence that occurred in the U.S. Capitol on January 6 when supporters of President Donald Trump flocked to the building while Congress proved the electoral college’s vote. The purpose was to protect the seats.
The FBI warns that armed protests may take place in the Houses of Parliament and all 50 State Capitols starting this weekend.
Some social media messages were demoed on Sunday, but it was unclear how many people would appear.
