Few in the crowd wore masks. Some sported red caps with the words Let’s Make America Godly Again, a play on Trump’s signature MAGA caps.

Vice President Mike Pence, speaking from the steps of the memorial, said he came to extend Trump’s greetings and gratitude and asked them to pray for the new Supreme Court nominee.

The march was organised by the Rev. Franklin Graham, a prominent conservative evangelical and Trump supporter. Many in the crowd appeared to be students of Liberty University in Virginia.
