Trump supporters numbering in the tens of thousands gathered in the streets of Washington, D.C on Saturday, to protest the results of the 2002 Presidential election, in which Joe Bide was named as the winner. The event was called the “Million Maga March,” which sounds strangely familiar.
The president drove past his supporters in his motorcade and gave them the thumbs up from behind his closed window. He later thanked his supporters for coming out on social media.

After passing through the rally, his motorcade made its way to the President’s Virginia golf course.
“Heartwarming to see all of the tremendous support out there, especially the organic Rallies that are springing up all over the Country, including a big one on Saturday in D.C,” Trump tweeted Friday. “I may even try to stop by and say hello.”
.@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! https://t.co/RMOa4jKZwA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 14, 2020
Trump later shared a picture of the large crowds on social media, attacking Fox and other news networks for not covering the event.
Hundreds of thousands of people showing their support in D.C. They will not stand for a Rigged and Corrupt Election! https://t.co/tr35WKTKM8— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 14, 2020
The event was also attended by the controversial far-right group known as the Proud Boys.

The march was planned to start at the Supreme Court and end at Freedom Plaza.
Washington DC police say that 10 arrests were made, four of which were for firearms violations.
Meanwhile, Trump’s legal challenges against the election results in numerous states have failed, and many members of the legal team are now beginning to back away. Trump’s loyal friend Rudy Guiliani has taken over his legal defense, and will likely be riding with him until the bitter end. Earlier this week, on a “wellness call” with his friend Geraldo Rivera, Trump said that he was a “realist” and that he would “do the right thing” if his legal challenges of the election results fail.
Rivera later went on FOX to discuss his conversation with the president. He said that Trump is not planning a violent takeover of the government as many of his critics suspect. The president is merely exhausting all of his legal options before he backs down, Rivera says.
