Thousands of Trump supporters had participated in a "Million Maga March" as they filled the streets of DC, heading to the Supreme Court.

Demonstrators echoed baseless claims from Donald Trump, who has claimed he won the election and there was voter fraud.

Amid the Saturday march, counter-protesters – including Antifa demonstrators – showed up.

In one video posted on social media a woman can be heard repeatedly shouting ‘f**k Trump” as she set fire to a MAGA hat and held it aloft.

She then stamps on the hat to extinguish it on top of a Trump flag, which protesters then set fire to, while elsewhere Black and Blue flags were also reportedly burnt.

Pictures also show a MAGA hats and a Trump flag with the President’s face on it being burnt.

Footage also emerged showing a young pro-Trump couple with the young woman in tears pushing through a crowd of counter-protesters who threw eggs and unidentified liquids at them.



Elsewhere anti-Trump protesters were seen throwing fireworks and bottles at his supporters as they dined outside a restaurant at around 6pm.

The Trump supporters initially tried to shout back at the large group gathered around them chanting “people are dying while you are dining”.

But they were forced to flee inside when the fireworks attack began.

Videos showed protesters and counter-demonstrators trading punches, slaps, and shoving one another.

Some counter-demonstrators stole red hats and flags, and lit them on fire, according to The Washington Post.

A brawl broke out just five blocks from the White House around 8pm, and went on for several minutes before cops arrived and cleared the area, The Washington Post reported.

One man in his 20s was stabbed in the incidents and rushed to the hospital, a DC Fire official told The Post.

Supporters of Trump chanted “USA, USA” and “four more years” as they marches in the streets.

Trump drove by the rally in his motorcade to wave at supporters – but did not exit the vehicle.

Supporters carried Trump and American flags as they held signs showing displeasure with the vote counts.

One video from earlier Saturday showed a Trump supporter with a bloodied face falling to the ground after he was reportedly assaulted.

A punching match broke out between members of the group Refuse Fascism, who were dressed in black, and Trump supporters, the New York Post reported.

Members of the Proud Boys also went to the event in large groups, with some chanting "F**k Antifa" as they marched along Freedom Plaza.
