The Million Maga March. The March for Trump. Stop the Steal DC.

Supporters of President Donald Trump of various stripes, including Proud Boys and Oath Keepers are planning to hold a march on Saturday in Washington, D.C., reported Politico.

The plan evokes white nationalism’s most recent marquee moment, when they successfully gathered in Charlottesville, Va. in 2017 for the “Unite the Right” rally.

Organizers of this event have not filed for permits, however, said a spokesperson for the D.C. Metropolitan Police.

Experts have nonetheless estimated that up to several thousand people might attend.
