Thousands of conservatives have gathered in downtown Washington DC, for a major protest of the election results. The people are packed in, filling more than a block of Pennsylvania Avenue- just blocks from the White House. Many of those attending are not wearing masks, but a good number are seeing with face coverings.
Several groups are sponsoring the protest and range from everyday supporters of President Trump to some groups identified as far right, white supremacists, or know to peddle conspiracy theories. Those who had gathered hours before the event kicked off were excited when President Trump's motorcade drove by the scene. Some of them ran towards his limousine as it passed by the scene.
A National Park Service permit was issued for one of the events with its organizers saying as many as 10,000 protestors could be attending, but it's unclear how many people will actually show up.
Trump tweeted it was "heartwarming" to see protests against the election results happening, including the one in DC, and said he might drop by to "say hello" but there's no mention of it on his Saturday schedule. President Trump is once again tweeting that Congress should pass a Covid-19 relief bill, saying it should be "big and focused," which seems to combine Democrat and Republican wishes from an additional stimulus package. "Congress must do a Covid Relief Bill. Needs Democrats support. Make it big and focused. Get it done!" Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
If a stimulus bill is passed, it will create millions of jobs and income by generating more consumers. The point of stimulus is to increase economic growth and thereby generate more jobs. GET IT DONE!
