Thousands of Trump supporters gathered in D.C. Saturday to rally against baseless claims of a rigged presidential election.

Thousands of President Donald Trump’s supporters poured onto the streets Saturday to rally against the presidential election results.

Demonstrators for the “Million MAGA March” protested through the District during the day, largely keeping the peace until the evening, when anti-Trump protesters clashed with the group, leading to 20 arrests.

Former Vice President Joe Biden secured the election Nov. 7, but Trump has not conceded and filed multiple lawsuits over the past couple of weeks arguing voting irregularities. Several of those lawsuits in key swing states where Biden won, like Michigan and Pennsylvania, have failed.

Here’s a look at some photos from the march:

Many of the protesters did not wear masks, a mandate in the District.

Thousands turned out to the march, including the extremist group Proud Boys, who Trump told to “stand back and stand by” at a debate last month.
