Thousands of President Trump’s supporters were out in Washington, D.C., on Saturday for a day of rallying to echo the false assertion that the presidential election was marked by fraud.

One week after Joe Biden’s presidential victory brought about spontaneous celebrations in the nation’s capital, a crowd that included the group Women for America First, right-wing activists and conspiracy theorists gathered in the city’s downtown near the White House.

On Friday, the National Park Service issued a permit for 10,000 people to attend the march, requested by Women for America First.Tyrone Turner/WAMU
