Supporters of President Donald Trump are set to rally in Washington DC to back his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud in the US election.
Far-right and anti-government groups including the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers and QAnon have indicated they will attend, amid heightened tensions over the 3 November election result.
Mr Trump drove past in a motorcade before the official start. The rally is expected to be met by counter-protests.
Joe Biden won the 3 November election.
On Saturday, he solidified his victory with a projected win in the state of Georgina – making him the first Democratic candidate to take the state since 1992.
He now has 306 votes in the electoral college – the system the US uses to choose its president – which far exceeds the 270 threshold to win.

However, Mr Trump has so far refused to concede. He has launched a flurry of legal challenges in key states and made unsubstantiated allegations of widespread electoral fraud – but his efforts have so far been unsuccessful.
