( – A gathering of individuals assembled outside the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C., on Thursday to express their support for ex-President Trump, who was facing arraignment in connection with alleged attempts to influence the outcome of the 2020 election.

Among those present was 54-year-old Dion Cini from Brooklyn, New York. He shared his shock at the modest turnout for Trump and asserted that the Justice Department is attempting to hinder Trump’s potential return to the presidency. He expressed his disbelief at the situation, saying, “I want to witness this unprecedented injustice in U.S. history myself.”

Jerrold Arnowitz, a 75-year-old from Upton, Massachusetts, was there to back those imprisoned for involvement in the January 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol, inspired by Trump’s unfounded allegations of electoral misconduct. Arnowitz’s participation in the protest was a fulfillment of his late spouse’s wish to “take care of the prisoners.” Feeling youthful and impassioned, he remarked that this endeavor felt more meaningful than mundane activities like playing bingo.

In contrast, some individuals were present to demonstrate against Trump. Tim Smith, a 38-year-old artist from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was seen holding a prominently colored sign labeling Trump as a “LOSER.” He acknowledged that justice might be slow but insisted it was necessary.

Alexandra Tyron-Hopko, a resident of Frederick, Maryland, who conducts tours in the capital, briefly stopped by the courthouse to observe what was expected to be a tumultuous scene. She did not intend to stay for the entire event, but she did refer to it as an unfortunate situation. She emphasized the importance of treating everyone equally under the law while also acknowledging the presumption of innocence.

The demonstrators were heavily outnumbered by media personnel stationed around the southern and western parts of the building, with some setting up as early as Wednesday afternoon.

Inside the courthouse, a limited number of seats were available to view the proceeding at 4 p.m. via live video feed, including 100 seats for journalists and 150 for the public.

The charges against Trump include attempts to defraud the U.S. and hinder an official process. While the Justice Department argues that Trump’s actions to undermine the election were “based on falsehoods,” Trump himself continues to describe the investigation as a politically driven “witch hunt.”
