With President Trump continuing to push back against the results of the 2020 election, claiming that widespread voter fraud is what truly cost him the contest, his base is organizing and mobilizing, hoping to lend their support to the cause.
So far, much of the MAGA movement’s work has occurred online, where they’ve shared heaps of information regarding the lawsuits that President Trump’s legal team are filing in states across the nation, in an effort to halt the election certification efforts of the individual locales.
But now, as the nation, (and the world), begins to move on from President Trump, MAGA is on the move.
While some Trump supporters and conservative groups have been seen near the White House following the election last week, Saturday’s gatherings could potentially be a lot bigger in scale.
Right-wing groups calling themselves March for Trump, Stop the Steal and Women for America First are all posting on social media about a big demonstration on Freedom Plaza Saturday at noon, but the largest Twitter page for the event only has about 10,000 followers.
There was some drama brewing, however, as organizers were largely moving ahead sans permits, and those who had gone through the process weren’t expecting the massive crowds that some were.
The Women for America First group had told DC officials that they expected no more than 50 people to attend their event.
Furthermore, a number of left wing groups were also schedule to appear on the National Mall around the same time, setting up the potential for clashes between the opposing factions.
