Far-Left Protests? No Problem. Trump Supporters Gather? Call Out The National Guard
How many Trump supporters might show up in Washington, DC on Tuesday and Wednesday is anyone’s guess, but the Democratic mayor calling out the National Guard is not surprising.
After far-left activists vandalized the streets of DC and other cities across the country in 2020, Democrats did not seem as concerned with that vandalism and mayhem as they are when groups of Americans who support this president decide to gather.
Expected to speak at the Trump event Wednesday are Donald Trump, Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, Amy Kremer, Rudy Giuliani, Katrina Pierson, Boris Ephsteyn, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, Diamond and Silk, Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones, Roger Stone, Benny Johnson, Scott Presler, Bernie Kerik, and Ali Alexander.
The event begins at 9:00 AM and President Trump is expected to speak at 11:00 AM.
