Experts are warning some right-wing extremists may appear at rallies in Washington, D.C., on Saturday in support of President Donald Trump, though it’s unclear how many people will attend.
Hundreds of Trump supporters had reportedly gathered in Freedom Plaza to back the president’s claims that he had won the presidential election.
Multiple events with names including Million MAGA March, Stop the Steal and March for Trump are set to occur at Freedom Plaza around noon Saturday, according to several social media posts. As of Tuesday, there were at least 24 Facebook events using one or both terms, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

#Trump #TrumpLive #MAGA #rallies
A week after the presidential race was called for Democrat Joe Biden, thousands of Trump loyalists converged on the nation’s capital to protest the election results and falsely assert the vote was stolen.
The rally – advertised by several names including Million MAGA March, Stop the Steal and March for Trump – started at Freedom Plaza, where the crowd’s chants of “four more years” and “stop the steal” largely drowned out event speakers.
Thousands of people clad in red, white and blue rallied and marched in support of outgoing President Donald Trump in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to protest supposed “voter fraud” in the 2020 presidential election.
Trump persists with his claims and complaints even though a broad coalition of top government and industry officials has declared that the Nov. 3 voting and the following count unfolded smoothly with no more than the usual minor hiccups – “the most secure in American history,” they said, repudiating his efforts to undermine the integrity of the contest.
The group then began marching to the Capitol to protest “voter fraud,” to “show support for our President” and “demand a free and fair election,” according to the Anti-Defamation League. Trump has refused to concede and leveled baseless allegations of voter fraud to falsely claim the election was stolen from him.
