Trump Supporters Chant on Plane to DC, Gather at National Mall

Supporters of US President Donald Trump descended on Washington on January 6 for a rally for the president as Congress is set to vote to affirm Joe Biden’s win in the Electoral College.

This footage, streamed live to Facebook by Cliff Gephart, shows Trump supporters chanting “Flight for Trump” on a packed flight to Washington on January 5. A second clip from January 6 shows a crowd of supporters chanting “USA” at the National Mall.

Trump was scheduled to make a speech at the Ellipse, south of the White House, shortly before 11 am on Wednesday.

NBC4 Washington reported that multiple rallies and marches were set to take place around the National Mall and the US Capitol, and continue into the evening.

Counterprotests had also been announced, the outlet reported. Credit: Cliff Gephart via Storyful
