President Trump is addressing throngs of supporters at a rally in Washington DC on Wednesday, as Congress prepares to certify the election win of rival President-elect Joe Biden.

Trump is speaking from a stage framed by signs for the “Save America March,” at a podium flanked by American flags fluttering in a chilly DC breeze.

As with his signature “Make America Great Again” rallies that became the hallmark of two presidential campaigns, Trump is being met by a sea of supporters decked out in red baseball caps and star-spangled shirts.

His remarks were preceded by a pre-recorded highlight reel of campaigns and speeches through the years, and a playlist heavy on classic rock, including Phil Collins’ ominous “In the Air Tonight” juxtaposed with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Trump’s rally came as Congress was set to certify the results of the 2020 presidential election, which the president has repeatedly claimed are marred by widespread, organized fraud without providing evidence.

Speakers who addressed the throngs prior to the president included his son, Donald Trump Jr., freshman North Carolina Rep. Madison Cawthorn, and personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Prior to his diagnosis with the coronavirus, Giuliani served as the architect for the campaign’s numerous legal suits to overturn Biden’s victory, most of which did not hold up in court.
