Thousands of Americans marched in Washington on Saturday, backing Trump’s claims of fraud in elections. The rally termed as “Million MAGA March” included Trump’s supporters holding flags and shouting the USA!” USA!” “We want Trump! We want Trump!” and “Four more years! Four more years!”.
The charged crowd gathered at Freedom Plaza and marched towards the Supreme court. During the rally, elected Republicans Paul Gosar of Az. and Mike Kelly of Pa. addressed the protesters to keep them motivated.
Additionally, President Trump also surprised his supporters by appearing at Pennsylvania Avenue after 10 am when he went to the Virginia golf club. Wearing a red baseball hat, Trump was smiling and waving his supports from his motorcade.
After Trump’s defeat in presidential elections’ Republicans planned to start pro-Trump rallies across the United States, Washington’s protest is a part of the same campaign to challenge election integrity.
Then, on Friday, President Trump appreciated his supporters for participating Pro-Trump rallies throughout the United States. He said it is heartwarming to see a massive crowd in America’s streets, and he would try to meet his supporters in the Washington march.
These protesters gathered across the United States to support Trump’s legal campaign about presidential elections. They were shouting that President Trump woke Americans up, and they want to see him as their President. Additionally, extremist militia groups such as Proud Boys and conspiracy theorists Alex Jones also joined the rally.
One of Trump’s supporters, Darion Schaublin, who traveled from Ohio to attend the rally, said that the whole system is rigged. Another said that they would try their best to overturn Biden’s victory.
Most of the day, the march was under control, and there was no severe dispute. Then, the peaceful rally turned into a violent protest at night when clashes broke out between Trump supporters and Biden’s voters.
Social Media reactions
People on twitter were having a field day. Most of the reactions were negative.
Ultimately, a severe fight started near Black Live matter Plaza where hundreds of Anti-Trump protesters harassed Trump’s supporters and burnt their flags and hats.
