What's happening with the transition?

Thousands of supporters of President Trump protesting the outcome of the election rally in Washington on Saturday, earning a brief drive-by visit from the President himself, in a day of orderly demonstrations that devolved into violence as night wore on. Police made 20 arrests, including four on gun charges, as counterprotesters and Trump supporters clashed in streets throughout the evening. One person was stab, but his condition was unknown late Saturday. For most of the day, however, crowds were under control, if boisterous, and many greeted the President with applause and cheers when he passed by in his motorcade, waving through the window as he headed to his private golf club in Sterling, Va. By early afternoon, demonstrators had fanned out for several blocks around Freedom Plaza. On Twitter, White House Press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, offered an exaggerated assessment of the event, called Million MAGA March, claiming that Million supporters had turned out. Accounts on ground suggest that her estimate was wildly inflated. It not like the Fourth of July or anything, said a police officer who was stationed near Freedom Plaza at 13 and G Streets. He declined to give his name because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. But yeah, he add, theres crowd down there. Even if short in numbers, crowd was not lacking in enthusiasm for the President or outrage over grievances he has raised over the past four years. Zenaida Ochoa, 46, Virginia resident originally from Arizona, said she had been following Trump since she was a kid. Hes not perfect, said Ms. Ochoa, who added that she supports Mr. Trump partly because of his immigration policies. Mr. Trumps brief visit on Saturday came one day after the last two States of Election were call. President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. Won Georgia to finish with a total of 306 Electoral votes, the same number that Mr. Trump won in 2016 and called landslide and Mr. Trump won North Carolina, for a total of 232 Electoral votes. Mr. Trump has refused to concede the race to Mr. Biden, and he continues to falsely insist he would have won if not for what he has claimed were widespread voter irregularities. In addition to the Million MAGA March, demonstrations by Trump faithful in Washington on Saturday include the Stop Steal rally and the Women for Trump event. Supporters of the President travel from across the country to participate. I was blown away, said Rachel Williams, county worker from Jasper, Ala., Who got in a car with three friends at 5: 30 Friday morning to attend March in Washington. I encouraged that America is not going to just lie down. Ms. Williams said there had been no fraud in her county. She registered voters as part of her job, but voiced suspicion over election results and suggested that there might have been fraud elsewhere.
