Trump is still incumbent president by legal recknoning.

An attempted coup attempts to replace an incumbent by somebody else.
A coup is defined as "a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government."

The rioters were trying to seize the US government's power to certify election results and certify Biden as the winner of the election and were attempting to forcefully demand that Pence, etc. object to the certifications of the electoral votes.

Similarly, if more violent riots take place on Inauguration day in an attempt to prevent Biden from taking office and being sworn in as President, it will be another attempted coup.
