Many in the mainstream media desperately want Americans to move on from the 2020 election and settle for a Joe Biden presidency, but over the weekend, President Donald Trump’s supporters made it clear that they don’t believe the election is over until the final vote is properly litigated.
According to The Hill, tens of thousands of pro-Trump protesters gathered in Washington D.C. over the weekend to voice their solidarity with the president as he fights a number of election-related legal battles in several battleground states.
The massive gathering, which was a result of a number of large pro-Trump groups coming together and led by former Tea Party organizer Amy Kremer, took place in and around Freedom Plaza, which is in close proximity to the White House.

Upon learning of the scheduled event, Trump teased last week that he would try and make an appearance for his large base of in-person supporters. In true Trump style, he didn’t disappoint, as he directed his motorcade to take a spin through the crowd, waving at his supporters as he rolled through.
The crowd could be heard on many occasions breaking into patriotic chants of “Four more years!” and “USA, USA, USA!”
One of the highlights of the entire protest was at the point when thousands of Trump supporters gathered together to sing a goosebump-inducing version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” in unison, according to the Washington Examiner.

Trump supporters proved over the weekend that, unlike Black Lives Matter, Antifa and similar groups, large demonstrations do not have to devolve into violence, looting and burning down cities. With the exception of some isolated acts of violence against Trump supporters, the large demonstration was the definition of a peaceful protest.
