On Saturday morning, Black Lives Matter Plaza was the scene of jubilation as thousands converged to celebrate President Donald Trump being denied a second term. In a scene reminiscent of pre-COVID concert halls, the plaza, which is located a stone’s throw away from the White House, was overflowing with Washingtonians from all walks of life dancing, playing music, popping champagne bottles, or simply observing the festivities. In the background, rancorous honking from passing vehicles could be heard.
The President himself was at his golf course at the time news broke of Biden’s victory. While the Trump campaign will no doubt issue legal challenges in several key states, there is little doubt in the capital that its most famous residence will have a new occupant come January.
