President Trump urged his supporters to flock to Washington DC on January 6, promising them a "wild" rally.

President Trump promised his supporters that there would be a "wild" rally in Washington DC on January 6th, the day Congress is due to meet to officially finalize the results of the presidential election.
"Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 election," tweeted Trump on Saturday. "Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, be wild!"
Trump tweeted in response to a 36-page report by White House economist and adviser Peter Navarro alleging alleged election fraud. Many of Navarro's claims have been largely debunked.
His tweet has since been flagged as "controversial" by Twitter.
The January 6th meeting between House and Senate legislators will be viewed as a mere formality in which they merely approve the longstanding state electoral votes.
However, several pro-Trump Republicans have announced they will disrupt the formal process, and Georgian elected representative Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted on Saturday: "On January 6th ... I will reject and reject the fraudulent electoral votes of several states around the world . " Country."
Trump has refused to admit, repeatedly making the unsubstantiated claim that Biden won the 2020 election for mass fraud.

Two weeks later, on January 20th, Biden is slated to be inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States in what his team described as a "more imaginative" virtual event.
Trump told the aides this week that he may refuse to leave the White House that day, according to CNN, although few of them believe he will actually pursue the threat.
Biden told Stephen Colbert in an interview on Thursday that while he does not mind "personally" that Trump may not attend his inauguration, he is nonetheless concerned about what Trump's absence will look like "for the rest of the world".
