Thousands of President Donald Trump supporters who believe voting irregularities could prevent his second term are gathering in Washington, DC, at noon on Saturday at Freedom Plaza for a #StoptheSteal election rally, and Mayor Muriel Bowser is not exactly rolling out the welcome mat.
Fox News reported on the Bowser’s response to the event:
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said Tuesday that her team was monitoring reports about a group of people from different states in the South planning on driving to D.C. this weekend. Nevertheless, the Democratic mayor, a staunch critic of President Trump, told a news conference that her office still recommended that businesses remove plywood coverings from their windows that were initially set in place in anticipation of election-related unrest last week if Joe Biden was not declared the victor.
“We continue to follow those activities and be prepared for those activities,” Bowser said, according to WUSA. “Our police chief will have a similar posture this weekend as he did last week and we will be there to support peaceful exercise of First Amendment demonstrations.”
