Thousands of supporters of Donald Trump are planning to attend several rallies this weekend in Washington DC to oppose Joe Biden ‘s victory in the US election.
This Saturday, November 14, MAGA supporters and other far-right organisations, including the Proud Boys, have vowed to come down to the city in support of Mr. Trump’s accusations of voter fraud and to condemn Mr. Biden as President-elect.
Several protest activities have appeared on social media, with the Million MAGA March, the March for Trump, and Stop the Steal DC being the most common message.
Both of these activities is scheduled to begin at noon, with participants attending either the Freedom Plaza or the Washington Monument to meet.
Exactly how many people are going to attend these activities is unknown, but more than 7700 people have expressed their participation in the Million MAGA March.
“Join us as we march the streets of Washington DC and show our support for President Donald J. Trump, support for our great republic, and support of a FREE and FAIR ELECTION!” the description on the event reads.
“Donald J. Trump has stood up and fought for the American people. It’s time we stand for him and for our constitution. If there were ever a time, IT’S NOW!”
