Merely 27 people attended a pro-Trump rally in Washington DC this week.

Event organisers toldThe Daily Beast that the extremely low turnout at the rally on Capitol grounds was the result of several factors, but it was still a “success.”.

Liberal activists using whistles who approached the gathering to protest were branded “paid agitators” and members of Antifa by Mr Moran.

Trump was not an organiser and was not at the “Stop the Tyrants and Unite for Freedom” rally on Friday.

Among those present, were MAGA fashion designer Andre Soriano and Trump aide Matt Braynard, according to The Daily Beast.

The rally on Friday comes just weeks after a similar gathering, also on Capitol grounds, failed to have the expected turnout. »
