CNB News – A throng of Trump supporters gathered in Washington, D.C., on Saturday to voice support for President Trump and protest against the results of the election after the push to overturn them suffered a major court defeat.

Organizers planned demonstrations in front of the Supreme Court, Capitol and Department of Justice as part of the events Saturday, the second time a major march has been organised to back Trump since Election Day.

Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, whom the president pardoned after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador, key-noted an event outside the Supreme Court.

Trump touted the demonstrations in a tweet, saying “thousands” were gathering in D.C. to march in support of his efforts to overturn President-elect Joe Biden‘s victory. He also indicated he planned to see supporters.

“Wow! Thousands of people forming in Washington (D.C.) for Stop the Steal. Didn’t know about this, but I’ll be seeing them! #MAGA,” the president tweeted.

Trump’s presidential helicopter, Marine One, flew over the National Mall as Trump departed the White House en route to the Army-Navy football game on Saturday afternoon at West Point.

Supporters gathered a day after the Supreme Court delivered a devastating blow for the president’s ongoing efforts to overturn election results.

The court rejected a lawsuit filed by Texas seeking to overturn election results in four key battleground states — Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Georgia — with justices ruling that the Lone Star State did not have the legal right to litigate over how other states carry out their elections.

Trump has ripped the decision, saying the court “let us down.”

Demonstrators began gathering early Saturday morning in D.C., with vendors setting up stands selling Trump merchandise and flags as supporters filed into Freedom Plaza.

Organizers with Jericho March and Let the Church Roar prayer rallies plan to convene at a stage near the National Mall until 4 p.m. Saturday, local Nexstar affiliate WDVM reported.

    Of course the majority of these protestors are not wearing masks. It is beyond ridiculous that they have not accepted the election results. The Electoral College meets on Monday but I am sure Donnie and his cult members will still say there was a massive fraud.
