Ringleaders of protesters are organizing an effort to “make sure Trump leaves the White House” by any means necessary after the Nov. 3 election, according to website posts from the group Shut Down DC and their allies.
The Federalist reports it found the group’s plans on an Oct. 13 version of their webpage.
“We can’t anticipate exactly how Trump and his enablers will try to attack democracy (although we have been gaming out a number of different scenarios), but we know that the stakes are too high to sit on the sidelines and wait. That’s why we’re making plans to be in the streets before the polls even close, ready to adapt and respond to whatever comes our way,” the group had on its website with images stored on internet archive records.
The webpage claims, “Trump has shown that he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on power. Trump will not leave office without mass mobilization and direct action.”
The ShutDown DC group is linked to earlier protests at the homes of Trump administration officials, according to The Federalist.
