Trump has claimed that he will 'win back the White House' in 2024, but many of his supporters don't want to wait that long - hence huge rally's in Washington DC just hours ago.
Thousands took to the streets of DC yesterday evening, to protest the election result for the second time.
Counter protesters also took to the streets and violence erupted with many people injured and multiple people stabbed...
Keep scrolling to see exactly what went down.
Donald Trump suffered a fairly big loss last month.
via: GettyBut it looks like Trump has his heart set on making a grand return to the White House. And his supporters still aren't happy with result either - with thousands taking to the streets of DC yesterday to protest the result, again.
Now, President Trump has had a busy 4 years, to say the least.
via: GettyLove him or hate him, it's hard to deny he's made an impact.
It's been a strange couple of years...
via: GettyNo one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
But, remarkably, it wasn't a publicity stunt.
via: GettyDonald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."
And when it came round to election day...The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had its new leader - President Donald Trump.
It's been an eventful few years...
via: GettyIt's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country was at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.
However, the President is certainly no stranger to criticism and controversy.
via: GettyMuch of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.
And, earlier this year...Many prayers were answered when the president was actually impeached.
Trump was charged with 2 offenses.
via: GettyThe first was for abuse of power, and the second was an accusation of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.
But despite his impeachment...
via: GettyTrump continued to hold an awful lot of power and his fan base was still going strong... Which wasn't necessarily a good thing considering the majority of Trump supporters hold far-right and very conservative ideologies.
But, despite his overwhelmingly loyal fan base...
via: GettyThere's no denying that Trump has handled this year's coronavirus pandemic terribly.
Our country is the worst affected in the world by the pandemic...
via: GettyAnd despite catching the virus himself last month, Trump has seemed to remain completely oblivious to how catastrophic the virus has been for millions of people.
The people of America were left grieving and feeling angry...But of course, this didn't stop Trump from running as president for a second term in this year's 2020 elections.
Trump's presidential campaign was as chaotic as we'd all expected...And in comparison to Democratic candidate Joe Biden's much classier and toned-down campaign, Trump seemed to be desperately grasping at straws.
He was clearly in panic mode...And right up until November 3rd, when the votes started to get counted, Trump continued to spread vicious lies about Biden and his campaign team in a desperate bid to be reelected.
But these efforts were to little avail.
It was a clear and fair win for Biden and vice president-elect, Kamala Harris...
Trump needs to admit defeat in a graceful and respectful way...Because if he doesn't, his name will continue to be dragged through the mud.
During all this, Melania's rep has confirmed that she decorated the White House one last time as a farewell tradition.
But, despite this farewell tradition...Trump has come out to say he is planning on running for a further 4 years, regardless of the fact he lost the election.
He talked about running for president again in 2024 while hosting a holiday reception on Tuesday evening.“It’s been an amazing 4 years," Trump told those that attended, including many Republican National Committee members. “We’re trying to do another 4 years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in 4 years."
The speech was streamed live to Facebook by former Oklahoma Republican Party Chair Pam Pollard.
