American Patriot Council and WalkAway with Brandon Straka began the protests around 9:30 a.m. Dozens of protesters can be seen outside of the center.

This is taking place after Trump supporters spent two days protesting the outcome of the election in Michigan.

Protesters did not show Action News evidence of fraud on Thursday, but they claim the vote counting process that went on inside TCF Center earlier this week was flawed and cannot be trusted.

"We’re NOT going to take it," Straka posted on his Facebook page Thursday. He claimed they're a "heartbeat away from losing @realDonaldTrump to a stolen election."
