BRIDGEPORT, Mich. (WJRT) - (01/05/2021) - As Congress votes to certify that Joe Biden won the presidential election, those who refuse to accept Trump’s defeat are demonstrating, taking a last stand against the results.

Mid-Michigan supporters for President Trump are on their way to join them, boarding a bus in Bridgeport, heading to Washington D.C.

”We want to support our good President,” Suzanne Hall said.

Hall lives in Birch Run Township and is joining 42 other Michigan supporters of President Trump on Tuesday night at 11 p.m.

“It was very fraudulent in multiple states, and we want to have those votes audited,” Hall said.

President Trump agrees, tweeting on Tuesday, “Washington is being inundated with people who don’t want to see an election victory stolen by emboldened Radical Left Democrats. Our Country has had enough, they won’t take it anymore!” We hear you (and love you) from the Oval Office. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

The U.S. Justice Department uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the election, and nearly 60 lawsuits were either thrown out or withdrawn. The US Supreme Court refused to get involved.

On Wednesday, however, Hall will join thousands of others, watching to see if Congress will overturn the results.

“I am anticipating that they are going to show some integrity and strength in coming against the fraudulent votes, so that our future elections can be trusted and that we can be certain that our votes will count,” Hall said.

Hall says she hopes an audit will prove that Trump won the 2020 Election, saying there’s a lot on the line with Wednesday’s congressional vote.

“I look at this situation as almost revolutionary. We the people are not going to let this go by without correction, and so I think our nation is ready to make a stand,” Hall said.

The session is set to begin Wednesday at 1:00 in the afternoon. The White House says Trump is speaking Wednesday during a rally on the Ellipse, just south of the White House.

The planned rallies have local officials preparing for potentially violent street clashes.
