By Jonathan Landay | ReutersWASHINGTON Thousands of President Donald Trumps supporters marched in Washington on Saturday to back his unsubstantiated claims of election fraud as he pushes ahead with a flurry of longshot legal challenges to overturn President-elect Joe Bidens victory. Trump has made little headway in the courts with his lawsuits and for the first time on Friday, he began to sound doubtful about his prospects, telling reporters time will tell who occupies the White House from Inauguration Day on Jan. 20. Flag-carrying Trump supporters, some chanting Stop the steal! and We are the champions!, streamed into a rallying point at Freedom Plaza near the White House in downtown Washington and were due to head toward the U. S. Supreme Court building. The demonstrations in Washington and other cities featured a mix of the president's backers, including conservative personalities as well as members of the far-right Proud Boys group and Oath Keepers militia in a public display of support for his effort to stay in power. Trump's motorcade briefly drove slowly through the crowds on his way from the White House to his golf course in Sterling, Virginia. Flag-waving supporters chanted the USA! and Four more years! as the cars rolled by. Outside the course, anti-Trump demonstrators waved signs including, We voted You're Fired. As the marches kicked off, Biden told reporters in Delaware that he was getting closer to forming his Cabinet. Organizers have given the pro-Trump rallies various names, including the Million MAGA March, the March for Trump and Stop the Steal. MAGA is an acronym for the Trump campaign slogan Make America Great Again. Trump has tweeted his support. Protesting against the marches, opponents on social media sought to create confusion by flooding the hashtags #MillionMAGAMarch and #MarchforTrump with photographs of pancakes. Some left-wing groups planned counter-demonstrations
