About The Gallery

Thousands of Donald Trump supporters rallied on November 14 in Washington, chanting "four more years" and “Stop the Steal,” blaming fraud for an election defeat that will force the president to vacate the White House after just one term. As night fell, the relatively peaceful demonstrations turned from tense to violent. Trump supporters and counter demonstrators were seen engaging in fistfights and projectiles were employed as Trump supporters clashed with those demanding they take their MAGA hats and banners and leave.
