WASHINGTON (AP) — Fervent supporters of President Donald Trump have rallied and marched in Washington behind his spurious claim of a stolen election.

And Trump fans swarmed his motorcade when he detoured for a drive-by on his way out of town.

Anthony Whittaker of Winchester, Virginia, says he came to help keep up Trump's spirits and to “let him know we support him.”

It was a week ago when the race was called for Democrat Joe Biden.

But Saturday's crowd of a few thousand was taking its cue from a president who's been unrelenting in asserting he won an election he actually lost.
