President Donald Trump’s supporters refused to stand by silently as election votes are counted in Arizona where his campaign is confident he will prevail.

The consensus among Trump’s team and his supporters is that Arizona was prematurely called a win for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on election night. With hundreds of thousands of ballots still to be counted, there is an expectation that the president will pull ahead and his supporters descended upon Arizona’s State Capitol and the Maricopa County Elections office.

As the nation’s presidential race remains undecided, a “Protect the Vote” rally began at the steps of the capitol in Phoenix where the crowd chanted “Four more years” and “We love Trump.”

The president’s supporters made their voices heard in the historically red state that was called for Biden by Fox News and the Associated Press, giving the Democrat the 11 electoral votes despite the substantial amount of outstanding ballots yet to be counted.

Photos and video from the rally were shared on Twitter as Trump’s supporters made it clear that it was not over in Arizona.

State Rep. Kelly Townsend addressed the crowd, encouraging them to register their complaints about the election process in the state to Arizona’s attorney general.

The rally moved on to the Maricopa County Elections office where protesters chanted “We want Trump!” and asked for Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes to come out.

At one point, the Trump supporters knelt to pray, asking “good to prevail.”

Despite the presence of Biden supporters as well as a strong showing of law enforcement on the scene of the elections office, there were no incidents of violence — unlike countless “peaceful protests” by the left in recent months.

However, liberal media outlets drummed up a false hysteria over the rally and were slammed on social media where witnesses countered the “fake news” with facts. CNN correspondent Kyung Lah reported that the elections building “is now going to close” and “we are the last news organization allowed to do a live shot here,” adding her fears about the safety of poll workers.

She also claimed that “this is a crowd that is armed” with “a number of people out there who have been seen with long guns, with automatic — semiautomatic rifles because this is an open-carry state, so there are a lot of security concerns plus trying to keep these people safe inside.”

CNN and the reporter were quickly called out.

MSNBC’s supposed coverage of the event was no better.

Meanwhile, as the nation waits, the vote-counting continues.

Trump supporters plan to be out at another “Protect the Vote” rally on Friday.
