President Donald Trump and his lawyers continue to insist that widespread voter and ballot fraud took place in nearly every key battleground state in the 2020 election.
On Saturday, according to the Washington Times, the president hinted at what could be the administration’s final stand moment after he teased an upcoming protest set to take place in Washington D.C. on January 6 — which happens to be the day that Congress will formalize the Electoral College’s certification of the votes.
In the tweet, Trump attached a link to an article about a 36-page report from economist and White House adviser Peter Navarro in which he detailed why he believes the president clearly won the election if it weren’t for a number of instances of voter fraud.
“Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!” Trump wrote at the end of the tweet, sparking speculation as to what the president exactly meant by the announcement. As of this writing, there doesn’t appear to be any planned protest announced for that day.
There have already been a number of protests by supporters of the president over the results of the 2020 election, with thousands showing up to peaceful protests in the nation’s capital to voice their concerns over the allegations of widespread fraud.
There have been a number of calls from his supporters on social media to institute some form of martial law involving the U.S. military to “redo” the 2020 election in the battleground states where the alleged fraud took place.
But the president put those rumors to rest in a weekend tweet, slamming the media for running with the story. “Martial law = Fake News. Just more knowingly bad reporting!” Trump tweeted.
No matter what the plans are for January 6, if a protest involving Trump’s supporters does take place in Washington D.C., we know that unlike protests led by Black Lives Matter and Antifa, it will at the very least be a peaceful one.
