MAGA fans roll into D.C. for second day with Trump set to speak at 'Save America Rally' before election revolt

MAGA fans rolled into Washington DC for the second day, as Donald Trump is set to speak at the "Save America Rally."

The demonstration comes as members of Congress today will vote to certify Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 US Presidential Election.

Trump and his supporters continue to make baseless claims of voter fraud – despite elections officials repeatedly saying there's zero evidence of fraud that would alter the outcome of the election.

Large crowds were seen packed together in the nation's capital as they march to protest the election results.

Thousands of people turned up to protest Biden's being certified on Wednesday.

Many crowd-goers were seen without masks and very little social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Supporters waved Trump and American flags, and sported MAGA gear.

Some held signs that read things like "stop the steal" and "do not certify".

Trump said in a tweet late Tuesday that he will speak at the event at 11am.

"I will be speaking at the SAVE AMERICA RALLY tomorrow on the Ellipse at 11AM Eastern," Trump tweeted.

"Arrive early — doors open at 7AM Eastern. BIG CROWDS!"

Trump's son, Eric, was seen addressing crowds ahead of his father.

Eric Trump said his father "will never, ever, ever stop fighting for you. Never"

"We as a family will never ever stop fighting for you. We love this country," he added.

Trump's other son, Donald Trump Jr., then hit at people "who did nothing to stop the steal."

"This isn't their Republican Party anymore. This is Donald Trump's Republican Party!" Donald Trump Jr. claimed.

He told crowds of fighting election results: "You can either be a hero, or you can be a zero."

On Wednesday, Donald Trump continued to baselessly rant about election fraud.

"The States want to redo their votes. They found out they voted on a FRAUD. Legislatures never approved. Let them do it. BE STRONG!" Trump tweeted.

On Tuesday, people gathered near Freedom Plaza to protest Biden's win.

One speaker told the crowd when speaking of Covid: "Turn to the person next to you and give them a hug."

He added: "Go ahead, spread it out."

Clashes were seen between cops and MAGA supporters following the rallies.

Protesters gathered at the Supreme Court building, Freedom Plaza, and Black Lives Matter Plaza to show support for Trump's unfounded election fraud claims.

From Tuesday into Wednesday, ten people were arrested, The Washington Post reported.

Those arrested hailed from Colorado, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia, according to the outlet.

One person was found to have a gun at Freedom Plaza, as two handguns and one rifle were confiscated, The Post reported.

As the crowds gathered for the second day, around a dozen Republican Senators are expected to object to certifying the election results in the Congress vote.

Among those to protest the result are Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Josh Hawley of Missouri.
