Thousands of President Donald Trump supporters gathered in downtown Washington D.C. to protest the election results of the Nov. 3 election. Here is a video of the aerial view of the crowd:
Ron and Michelle Mueller woke up at 4 a.m. on Monday and drove to Dalton, Ga., from their home in Magnolia, Texas to attend a Trump rally, then drove to D.C. to attend Wednesday’s protest.
“We are here to support Trump,” Michelle Mueller, 54, told NPR. “El patron, or the boss, won.”
The Muellers believe the Nov. 3 elections were “fraudulent.” Michelle says she stayed up all night following the results and “watched it live on TV subtracting votes from Trump.” She believes this happened because at 11 p.m., Trump was ahead and by 3 a.m. he was losing.
The couple plans to keep “fighting for the real winner” by writing letters to their representatives and showing up at rallies and protests in support of Trump.
The protests are timed to coincide with Congress’ certification of the Electoral College votes and aim to support Republican lawmakers’ effort to object the vote.
Thousands of Trump supporters gathered at The Ellipse waiting for Trump to speak. The crowd faced the White House and a stage was flanked by two big “Save America March” signs swayed to the beat of the Village People song “Macho Man” and Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean.”
Some speakers were heard saying: “We can’t back down. This is just the beginning.” The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr. who greeted the crowd with a “hello Patriots!”
Outside the U.S. Capitol several dozen Trump supporters waved flags and prayed for “angel armies” to intervene, calling on lawmakers inside to “reject” the election.
