President Trump made an early appearance Saturday at the “Million MAGA March” held in his honor in Washington, D.C., with a throng of supporters cheering him on.

Trump stayed in his car but drove slowly past the crowd, waving at supporters. Marchgoers chanted “USA! USA!” as the president’s motorcade approached, with many chasing after him, trying to snap photos.

The president hinted at an appearance Friday, writing on Twitter, “Heartwarming to see all of the tremendous support out there, especially the organic Rallies that are springing up all over the Country, including a big one on Saturday in D.C. I may even try to stop by and say hello.”

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had predicted the march would be “quite large.”

Many pro-Trump groups, including Stop the Steal, are participating in the march, which is expected to draw thousands of people to the District.

Supporters of far-right groups such as the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers are also expected to attend rallies in the nation’s capital on Saturday.

People have been documenting their trips to D.C. for the march, having come from across the country to demonstrate on the president’s behalf.

A counterprotest dubbed “F— MAGA” by All Out DC is scheduled to occur nearby.

The pro-Trump march takes place a week after major news outlets projected that President-elect Joe Biden would win the presidency after surpassing Trump in the vote count in several key states.

Trump has not conceded and has taken legal action in several states, demanding recounts and investigations into ballot irregularities, though his team has faced several setbacks in court.
