Donald Trump Jr. told a crowd of MAGA supporters at a ‘Stop the Steal’ rally in Washington D.C. on Wednesday that their gathering should serve as a warning to establishment Republicans that the Republican Party now belongs to Donald Trump.
“It should be a message to all the Republicans who have not been willing to actually fight, the people who did nothing to stop the steal,” Trump Jr. said. “This gathering should send a message to them: This isn’t their Republican Party anymore. This is Donald Trump’s Republican Party.”
Thousands of Donald Trump supporters gathered in Washington on Wednesday at the National Mall as a joint session of Congress meets to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
More than 100 House Republicans and roughly a dozen GOP senators have indicated they will contest the election certification process. This will lead to hours of debate in both chambers.
The effort is ultimately guaranteed to fail given that a challenge would need support from both the House and Senate.
