Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Supporters Rally Near the White House to Overturn Election Results” – below is their description.
A large crowd carrying American flags, Trump banners and placards, some reading “Stop The Steal,” gathered in Washington, D.C.’s Freedom Plaza near the White House to show their support for President Donald Trump.
The protest is one of a number in the nation’s capital that coincides with Wednesday’s congressional vote expected to certify the Electoral College results giving Joe Biden the presidency.
Trump continues to dispute those results, however.
The White House says Trump will personally address a gathering of his supporters in Washington Wednesday as he seeks to rally populist support for his last-ditch efforts to overturn his loss to Biden.

The rallies have local officials bracing for potentially violent street clashes.
Election officials from both political parties, governors in key battleground states and Trump’s former attorney general, William Barr, have said there was no widespread fraud in the election.
Nearly all the legal challenges from Trump and his allies have been dismissed by judges, including two rejected by the Supreme Court.
Expected attendees at the Washington rallies include high-level Trump supporters like Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Republican strategist Roger Stone, a longtime Trump devotee whose three-year prison sentence was commuted by Trump.
Stone was convicted of repeatedly lying to Congress during the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
