Donald Trump supporters rallied outside Georgia’s Capitol building chanting ‘Stop the Steal!’ on Wednesday as the state is due to finish recounting ballots by tonight.

Far-right radio show host Alex Jones was part of the crowd that waved American and Trump campaign flags, many of them seen not wearing masks and ignoring social distancing guidelines.

Hundreds of people, including State Representative Vernon Jones and Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, gathered for the Stop the Steal protest that eventually poured inside the Georgia Capitol building building. 

On Monday Jones urged his supports to ‘go to the capital of Georgia now and you must surround the governor’s mansion now,’ according to Media Matters.

Georgia’s recount started Friday morning and the deadline is 11.59pm Wednesday.

Though Trump gained more than 1,000 votes this week that county election officials failed to count, Biden is still projected to win the Peach State. 

The latest unofficial count had Biden in the lead with 12,781 votes, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger has also said he doesn’t think the recount will change Biden’s win in the state. 

Several members of the Proud Boys, a far-right males-only extremist group that has neo-fascist, violent, nationalistic, Islamophobic, and misogynistic views, were seen in the crowd. US intelligence agencies have described the organization as a ‘dangerous white supremacist group.’
