Trump supporter says MAGA fans are ‘ready for WAR’ with Antifa and BLM outside White House amid election violence fears – The Sun
A DONALD Trump supporter said the president's fans are "ready for war" as he stood outside the White House on Monday afternoon.
Kehinde Ogun, 35, originally from Brooklyn, New York, told The Sun he's been living in Washington DC for the past four years.
Ogun, a Black American, said: "If Antifa and BLM want to bring it, we are ready for war."
Over recent weeks, President Trump has hinted that he might not accept the outcome of the election, causing worries about potential unrest on the streets.
Large crowds are expected to gather outside the White House at midnight tonight, Ogun said, aimed at showcasing their support for Trump on the eve of the election.
The 35-year-old also said that he does not believe the president is a racist.
Ogun said: "That's just a hoax, it's fake news from the media, CNN, Black Lives Matter movement and Antifa. They're confused."
He went on to say his support for Trump stems from the president's work helping African Americans.
Ogun said: "I'm a big fan of my president because look what he's doing with the prison reform. He's freeing black African Americans from the federal penitentiary.
"Look what he's doing with increasing employment. Look what he's doing with increasing social security income.
"And also foreign affairs. He's a blessing with China, Russia, South Korea and North Korea. I appreciate it so much what he's doing."
Businesses in New York, Portland and Washington D.C. are being boarded up over fears of violence and looting if Donald Trump wins the election.
Polls have largely shown Democratic candidate Joe Biden claiming victory – but with mail-in ballot counts, the final numbers may not be in for days or weeks.
Pictures show businesses boarding up their windows and doors across the United States.
Upscale stores along Fifth Avenue and the Soho neighborhood in New York City were seen boarded up with plywood in anticipation of possible looting.
In Washington DC, workers were seen screwing boards in place in anticipation of possible demonstrations.
The White House is also going to be surrounded by a massive fence in anticipation of possible unrest following the election.
Shops in Boston and Portland were also boarding up shops as they braced for possible unrest.
In the midwest, some retailers in St. Louis, Missouri were also seen covering shop windows with plywood.
Luxury retailers on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California were also seen covering their businesses to protect them.
CNN host Wolf Blitzer shared a video of businesses boarded up ahead of the election.
"I never thought I would see so many buildings here in the nation’s capital boarded-up on the eve of a presidential election in anticipation of possible unrest," Blitzer tweeted.
"And it’s not just in DC. It’s happening in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere around the country. So sad!"
