Two pro-President Donald Trump rallies—the “March for Trump” and Stop The Steal’s “Wild Protest”—are slated to occur in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, Jan. 6th. Both have the same goal of baselessly asserting there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
But now they have found a new enemy: Each other.
The March for Trump, the larger of the two rallies, bills itself as "a bus tour" that culminates in D.C.
President Donald Trump came out on Twitter and endorsed the March for Trump on Jan. 1, and since has retweeted numerous graphics promoting the specific "March for Trump" event.
Yet, this hasn't stopped one far-right activist and former felon from claiming Trump endorsed his rally, the Wild Protest.
Far-right activist and Stop the Steal early adopter Ali Alexander is leading the competing Wild Protest and hasn't been afraid to take aim at the March for Trump in recent days.
"We've been doing the work, we haven't been doing bus tours, we don't do guilt-trippy emails, we don't do guilt-trippy text messages, we're about the work," he added.
Alexander then continued to take swipes at the larger "March for Trump" bus tour en route to Washington, D.C.
"Who started the [StopTheSteal] hashtag? Who worked with Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) to whip up votes in the House?" Alexander stated, taking credit for both inventing the 2020 election fraud movement and pushing for members of Congress to denounce certification of the election. Brooks was one of the first to come out and challenge the Electoral College results.
More mainstream Trumpworld characters, such as Woman for Trump leader Amy Kremer, are at the helm of the March for Trump, while far-right personalities such as Alex Jones are set to headline the Wild Protest.
Ali's protest takes it's name from Trump's call to be "wild" on Twitter.
By noon on Wednesday, the two rallies will converge on President's Park, behind the White House.
Minutes later in his Periscope video, Alexander talked about the text messages his "Stop the Steal" organization has been sending out, despite taking issue with March for Trump's own texting.
Allies of Alexander have also gotten in on the drama, passing the claim that Trump is "promoting his [Alexander's] event."
Trump's tweet Cernovich flagged was deleted.
Trump has yet to publicly endorse Alexander's Wild Protest although he has used the phrase "Stop the Steal."
This isn't the first time recently that Alexander has found notoriety around protests in D.C.
Last week, Alexander threatened "something bad" might happen to the Hotel Harrington, a Washington, D.C. hotel, which decided to close its doors in light of the pro-Trump rallies coming to town and possibly bringing violence along with them.
A request for comment to the March for Trump rally from the Daily Dot on Alexander's criticism of their organization and questions about what relationship they have with Alexander went unreturned.
