Tens of thousands of President Trump’s supporters were in Washington Saturday, making their voices heard, their presence felt, and doing all they can to let it be known they don’t want the president to concede. A huge crowd converged on Freedom Plaza and marched directly in the direction of the Supreme Court, where they also hope Trump’s claims of a fraudulent election can be heard.
The supporters chanted “Stop the Steal” and held signs with all kinds of messages, including “Make America Fair Again” and “Trump 2020.”
At the end of the march, prominent Trump allies made speeches, including the CEO and founder of My Pillow, Mike Lindell, and Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas and Paul Gosar of Arizona.
The march in Washington was one of many across the country. While television networks and news outlets have declared Joe Biden the winner of the election, Trump has rejected that claim and said the “the election is far from over.” Fox News was in the crosshairs of both the president and his supporters, as fans chanted derogatory sayings about the news outlet, while Trump paid them the ultimate insult, lumping Fox News in with other networks he claims deliver fake news: CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS.
Trump tweeted “@FoxNews and the Fake News Networks aren’t showing these massive gatherings. Instead they have their reporters standing in almost empty streets. We now have SUPPRESSION BY THE PRESS. MAGA!”
President Trump was well aware of the show of support, and his motorcade made it’s way through the crowd at one point, delighting the people rallying for him.
Trump also had opinions on what’s going on during the recount in Georgia.
“The hand recount taking place in Georgia is a waste of time. They are not showing the matching signatures. Call off the recount until they allow the MATCH. Don’t let the Radical Left Dems STEAL THE ELECTION!”
