Activists in Washington on Saturday to protest Trump’s attacks on the election and refusal to concede defeat by Joe Biden say supporters of the president attacked them.
Sunsara Taylor, a spokeswoman and co-founder of RefuseFascism.org, told the Guardian her group was part of a nationwide protest to “stand on the victory of his electoral defeat … to expose, oppose Trump’s attempt to overturn this election.”
The #MillionMAGAMarch is officially starting in about half an hour, but violence has already broken out.
Trump is back at the White House, Guardian Washington bureau chief and today’s pool reporter David Smith notes, to “cheers and whoops on 15th Street from flag-waving supporters on the corner near the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture”, but no dramatic hoo-hah among the Trump supporters gathered in Washington today.
He tweeted either from the motorcade or as he left it, too:
People are not going to stand for having this Election stolen from them by a privately owned Radical Left company, Dominion, and many other reasons! https://t.co/RMOa4jKZwA
