Trump Urges Supporters to Gather in DC on Wednesday, Jan. 6
President Donald Trump on Sunday urged supporters to join the planned protests in Washington on Jan. 6, 2021.
“See you in Washington, DC, on January 6th. Don’t miss it,” Trump wrote in a tweet, promising more information later.
A number of groups are planning to gather in the nation’s capital next month as members of Congress convene in a joint session to count electoral votes.
At least 11 members or members-elect in the House of Representatives plan to object to electoral votes. They have not yet received a commitment from a senator; challenges require both a representative and a member of the upper congressional chamber. The objection wouldn’t be upheld unless a majority of each chamber vote in favor of it.
Trump has repeatedly called on Republican senators to object to the votes, alleging widespread election fraud in swing states.
About two dozen GOP senators have already said they will not object to the votes, according to an Epoch Times tally. Others have indicated they would not join in an objection.
Five senators have said they’re open to objecting to the votes, as is Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), while the rest haven’t ruled it out.
