Pro-Trump Rallies in D.C. Saturday Could Turn Violent: Report

Several pro-Trump rallies set to converge Saturday on downtown D.C. pose a significant risk for violent encounters with counterprotesters, researchers say.

The events protesting President Donald Trump’s apparent loss in the 2020 presidential election — with names such as “Million MAGA March,” “Stop the Steal” and “March for Trump” — are likely to draw members of the Proud Boys, a far-right organization deemed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group with white supremacist ties, the Washingtonian reported.

Overall, participants plan to gather at Freedom Plaza at noon Saturday, despite having no apparent permits from the National Park Service, according to the Washingtonian.

As a result, people in the D.C. region are encouraged to avoid downtown on Friday afternoon and Saturday.

While the events’ crowds are not predicted to be large, there is the potential for Trump to call for the National Guard or federal troops to circumvent D.C. law enforcement to protect these groups.
