Opposing Protesters Gather in Philadelphia as Pennsylvania Vote Count Continues

Donald Trump supporters and “Count Every Vote” demonstrators gathered outside of the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia as Joe Biden took a lead in the state on Friday, November 6.

Jason Peters filmed this footage of opposing groups of protesters near the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The footage shows Trump supporters congregating on one side of the street and chanting “stop the steal.” The video also shows a “Count Every Vote” demonstration held on the other side, where musicians are playing and people are dancing.

Biden held a lead of more than 9,000 votes as of 11.20 am on Friday, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Reports said there were more than 100,000 mail-in ballots left to be counted.

Trump earlier in the week had said his campaign “claimed” Pennsylvania “for Electoral Vote purposes.” Credit: Jason Peters via Storyful
