Tens of thousands of Donald Trump’s supporters marched through downtown Washington on Saturday, echoing his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud and cheering as his motorcade drove past. It was reported by Reuters.
A week after Democrat Joe Biden clinched the election, Trump, a Republican, has refused to accept the outcome and has launched a flurry of dubious legal challenges to overturn the results. Election officials around the country have said they saw no evidence of serious irregularities.
Carrying flags and chanting "stop the steal," the protesters walked from Freedom Plaza near the White House to the U.S. Supreme Court building on Capitol Hill as part of the "Million MAGA March," referring to Trump’s campaign mantra of “Make American Great Again.”
Trump’s motorcade briefly drove through the crowds on the way to his golf course in Sterling, Virginia. Demonstrators cheered as the president, wearing a red baseball cap emblazoned with the slogan, waved from inside the presidential limousine.
As we reported earlier, the wife of Donald Trump, Melania, intends to terminate her 15-year marriage.
Melania Trump is famously said to have burst into tears when her husband triumphed in 2016, with one friend saying: "She never expected him to win."
She waited five months before moving from New York to Washington, allegedly because the couple's son Barron "needed to finish school."
But former aide Stephanie Wolkoff claimed Melania was negotiating a post-nuptial agreement to give Barron an equal share of the Trump fortune.
