Yes, you did in fact read that correctly. Supporters of President Donald Trump are descending upon Washington, D.C. to join the "Million MAGA March" this weekend. Playing off of the historic "Million Man March" that took place years ago, the right-leaning crowd will meet in the nation's capital to support the President's quest to undermine the legitimacy of the last election. The White House is expecting large crowds as groups like the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and Stop The Seal will all appear in the District of Columbia.
“I think it’s going to be quite large, um, from what I’m hearing, don’t have an estimate for you,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
“People want to show up and have their voice heard. I mean this president — look, he got more votes than any Republican nominee, or for president I should say, in the history of our country and indeed he got more Republican votes as any nominee in the history of our party back in 2016."
One of the driving forces behind the march is the President's tirade against the election results. Despite the Department of Homeland Security's report establishing this year's election as the most secure in history, Trump has filed multiple lawsuits questioning the legitimacy of mail-in ballots, criticizing the ballot counting process and much more.
“People poured their hearts into voting against Trump. They fought through outrageous moves by Trump and the Republi-fascists to deny them the vote. And Biden has decisively won, and they rightly celebrated,” Andy Zee of Refuse Fascism said.
"We must not allow the Trump/Pence regime to illegitimately overturn this election. That is why it is so urgent that people come out on Saturday to say no to Trump still trying to steal the election.”
In response, a number of organizers in the area have planned counter protests. Most notably, a group called All Out DC has planned a "F--- MAGA" march on the same day. All of these conflicting events will go down on November 14.
