    Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump take part in a pro-Trump rally, in Washington DC. The protesters are demanding a recount of votes and a review of election results in a number of states.

    US Congress is holding a joint session on 6 January to count and confirm the results of the presidential election.

    Supporters of outgoing US President Donald Trump hit the streets in Washington DC on Wednesday ahead of the Congress meeting to confirm the results of the November 3 presidential election. 

    Earlier, it was reported that at least 140 members of the House of Representatives and 12 Senate members were expected to reject the results from a number of key battleground states where Trump's team claim election fraud took place.

    Trump has refused to concede defeat to Democratic rival Joe Biden, saying that he would only acknowledge Biden's victory after the legal votes are counted and illegal ones discounted.
