HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Several dozen Trump supporters rallied outside the state Capitol building on Saturday, hours after learning the president had lost re-election to Joe Biden.

They waved flags and carried signs to support Trump.

And some echoed the president’s unfounded claims of election fraud.

Waipahu resident Neil, who didn’t want to provide his last name, said he attended the rally because he thought the president was being cheated out of a victory — a false claim the president has made.

Neil said he came out “to let Trump know we still got his back.”

Other Trump supporters had similar views.

“I believe it was an unjust election,” Kailua resident Vikki Ferstler said, even though there has been no evidence provided from the Trump campaign of any election fraud.

“We love this man and so many people love this man. ... To have it this close, and to have all these weird things happening, doesn’t hold the common sense test.”
