Trump supporters descend on DC

Election 2020 Trump supporters Protests

Clashes broke out in the streets of Washington on Saturday night after US president Donald Trump’s supporters marched to back his refusal to accept defeat in this month’s election against Joe Biden.

One week after Joe Biden’s presidential victory brought about spontaneous celebrations in the nation’s capital, a crowd that included the group Women for America First, right-wing activists and conspiracy theorists gathered in the city’s downtown near the White House.

Several other cities on Saturday also saw gatherings of Trump supporters unwilling to accept Democrat Joe Biden’s Electoral College and popular vote victory as legitimate. Cries of “Stop the Steal” and “Count Every Vote” continued in spite of a lack of evidence of voter fraud or other problems that could reverse the result.
