Trump supporters descend on National Mall Saturday



Officials in the nation’s capital are girding themselves for what could be a very long, chaotic day on Saturday, according to our local affiliate WJLA.

Two large rallies are planned on the National Mall that promise to draw large and passionate crowds with divergent political views.

Supporters of President Donald Trump have organized what they have dubbed “the Mother of All Rallies.”

Scheduled to run from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the group is gathering to “demand protection for traditional American culture while they express their love for the United States and the America First agenda,” according to the rally’s website.

Speakers, bands, and panel discussions are lined up to take the stage throughout the day.

“Our goal is to rally 1 million patriots to Washington DC to send a shock-wave message to the world that they have to go through us to take this country or change its culture,” states the event’s Facebook page.

According to WJLA, organizers estimate about 5,000 people will attend.
