NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — More than 100 supporters of President Donald Trump rallied at the Tennessee Capitol Saturday, after media projections that Trump has lost his bid for reelection.

Major media outlets, including CBS and the Associated Press, projected Vice-President Joe Biden would will Pennsylvania just before 10:30 Saturday morning. That gave Biden more than 270 projected electoral votes, enough to win the U.S. Presidency.

You can watch some video from the rally below.

Supporters held flags and signs in support of President Trump in front of the Capitol, while chanting and singing on the Capitol steps. At least one supporter, speaking to the crowd through a megaphone, repeated Trump's unproven claims that the Pennsylvania vote was fraudulent and asked for supporters to give to Trump's legal campaign.

President Trump has not conceded the race, again claiming, without evidence, that there has been widespread voter fraud and that his team will continue to seek lawsuits in many states, including Pennsylvania.

Tennessee voted overwhelming for President Trump in his bid for reelection, with Trump earning more than 60% of the state's votes. Biden received just above 37%.
