MIDLAND, TX – As chaos overtook the nation's capital on Wednesday Trump supporters in Midland had a much calmer and lawful approach.
Supporters of the 45th president gathered at Centennial Park in downtown Midland to show their support for republican lawmakers that planned to reject the certification of electoral votes.
Nearly 30 individuals came together to show their support for Trump hours before the joint session of Congress was set to meet.
For those participating in the protest, this was part of their "patriotic duty." The rally was organized in response to Trump's continued claims that democrats “stole the election.”
“I think citizenship comes with stewardship to guard that. I’m not doing anything more than what’s required as being a citizen of the United States,” said Trump supporter Mark Walter.
Fellow supporter Brenda Lanbrano stated she believes the "truth will come to light."
“Have faith. Trump’s still got other stuff up his sleeve. The election fraud is so rampant and so huge. When it gets all proven out, then we’ll know what really happened,” said Lanbrano.
The organizers of the rally Dara Richardson and Gabriela Molina are members of the “Young Republicans of Midland County.”
According to Molina, President Trump represents "American values."
“I stand behind a man who has integrity, a man of faith, a man of God, and our children depend on it. our rights, our religious rights are drowned. This whole election fraud has been going on for decades. We the American people have been asleep at the wheel,” said Molina.
