The rally by Trump supporters was organised to protest the vote count at the end of which Joe Biden was expected to be elected as the next President of the United States of America.
However, Trump supporters believed the election was rigged and that Donald Trump had won a second term.
Trump decided to address the rally. In his speech, he expressed his anger at the “big tech” whom he blamed for rigging the election and at the media for publishing fake news targeting him.
He thanked the crowd for assembling in his support. Trump said that the country “has had enough” and “we will stop the steal”, a phrase used by his supporters referring to Biden stealing the election.

In his speech, Trump quoted alleged evidence to substantiate his claims that the election was “stolen” from him.
At the end the President said, “..And I say this despite all that’s happened. The best is yet to come.”
“So we’re going to, we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I love Pennsylvania Avenue. And we’re going to the Capitol, and we’re going to try and give.”
“So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.”
“I want to thank you all. God bless you and God Bless America.”
