The leader of the controversial far-right group Proud Boys visited the White House on Saturday as thousands of Trump supporters gathered outside the Supreme Court to protest his decision not to discard the election results.
Enrique Tarrio, who heads the movement denounced as an extremist group, posted a photo of the White House on his Parler social media account.
"Last-minute invitation to an unknown location …" wrote Tarrio on the social media site that has appeared among many die-hard Trump supporters as an alternative to Twitter.
"Wow … I'm in awe," added Tarrio. He ended the post with the hashtag # Trump2020.
White House spokesman Judd Deere told DailyMail.com on Saturday that Tarrio "was on a public Christmas tour of the White House" and that he "neither had a meeting with the President nor was he invited by the White House".
Thousands of President Donald Trump's supporters returned to Washington for rallies on Saturday to support his desperate efforts to undermine the elections he lost to Joe Biden.
They cheered as Trump flew over the head in the Marine One helicopter on his way out of town to the Army-Navy soccer game in West Point, New York.
The rallies are intended as a show of violence just two days before the electoral college meeting to officially elect Biden as 46th president.
Trump tweeted his obvious surprise on Saturday morning at the rallies that have been publicly known for weeks: “Wow! Thousands of people are forming in Washington, D.C. for Stop the Steal. Didn't know about it, but I'll see her! #MAGA & # 39;

Tarrio is among several thousand supporters of the president who came to Washington DC on Saturday to host a "Stop the Steal" rally denouncing the alleged "election fraud" that allegedly led to the victory of President-elect Joe Biden Has.
Conservative groups claiming without evidence that Biden stole Trump's election planned nationwide protests on Saturday, including a rally in Washington led by Trump's recently pardoned former National Security Advisor Roger Stone.
Tarrio, 36, was previously pictured with Trump confidante Stone, the President's son, Don Jr., Florida Governor Rick Scott, and senior Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who petitioned a Senate resolution von Tarrio helped define the anarchist left wing group Antifa as a "domestic terrorist organization".
Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor who was recently pardoned by Trump, spoke from the stage at the rally on Saturday when Trump flew over to Marine One.
& # 39; That's pretty great. Imagine jumping in a helicopter and just taking a spin around Washington, ”said Flynn, whose pardon had defeated his belief that he lied to the FBI during the Russia investigation.
Saturday marks the third time Trump has taken part in the annual Army-Navy game during his presidency.
George W. Bush and Harry Truman are the only other presidents to have gone to the game three times in office.

The organizers of Stop The Steal, which is linked to pro-Trump agent Roger Stone, and church groups urged supporters to take part in "Jericho Marches" and prayer rallies.
Rallies were planned in the Washington National Mall and in the capitals of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada and Arizona, at which Trump's campaign has questioned the number of votes.
The President confirmed his supporters Saturday morning and said he would see them!
More than 50 judgments from federal and state courts have upheld Biden's victory over Trump.
The Supreme Court on Friday denied a Texas-filed and Trump-backed lawsuit to dismiss the voting results in four states.
Trump has refused to admit defeat, claiming without evidence that he was denied victory through massive fraud.
The Washington rally began with demonstrations around the US Capitol, the Supreme Court and the Justice Department, "with prayers that the walls of corruption and electoral fraud come down," according to StopTheSteal.com.

Retired Army General Mike Flynn, who pleaded guilty twice to lied to the FBI about contacts with the former Russian ambassador, was due to speak from the steps of the Supreme Court, his first public address since Trump pardoned him on November 24th.
Republican political donors and religious figures including Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow, and radio host Eric Metaxas are expected.
An anti-Trump group also called for a rally near the White House on Saturday to increase the potential for a recurrence of the clashes on November 14th.
The Supreme Court order was a stark rejection of a legal claim that was widely viewed as dubious but was accepted by the President, 19 Republican Attorneys-General, and 126 Republicans of the House.
Trump had insisted that the court would find the "wisdom" and "courage" to take its unfounded position that the election was the product of widespread fraud and should be overturned.
The nation's supreme court, however, strongly disagreed.

Friday's ruling marked the second time this week that the court rejected Republican motions to participate in the 2020 election result and to reject the election of voters, as reflected in an election held by both Republican and Democratic officials was considered free and fair.
The judges rejected an appeal from the Pennsylvania Republicans on Tuesday.
The electoral college will meet on Monday to officially elect Biden as the next president.
Trump had called the lawsuit filed by Texas against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin "the big one" that would end with the Supreme Court overturning Biden's sizeable majority on the electoral college and allowing Trump to serve in the White House for another four years.
In a brief ruling, the court stated that Texas did not have the legal right to sue these states because it "has shown no judicial interest in the way another state conducts its elections".
Judges Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, who previously said the court had no power to dismiss claims between states, heard the appeal from Texas.
But they wouldn't have done what Texas wanted – apart from these four states' 62 votes for Biden – until the lawsuit was settled.
Trump complained that the lawsuit was "dismissed" "instantly" without even considering the many reasons for which it was brought. A rigged election, keep fighting! & # 39;

In an effort to get the youngest of his nominees, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, Trump quickly confirmed that she would be needed for any post-election lawsuit.
Barrett appears to have participated in both cases this week. Neither of the people appointed by Trump noticed a contradiction in either case.
Trump lost a federal lawsuit on Saturday while his attorney argued his case before a skeptical Wisconsin Supreme Court in another lawsuit in which Liberal judges said "an air of racism" and disenfranchised hundreds of thousands of voters just across the country.
U.S. District Judge Brett Ludwig, a Trump-appointed judge, dismissed Trump's federal lawsuit and asked the court to order the Republican-controlled legislature to name Trump the winner over Democrat Joe Biden.
The judge said Trump's arguments "fail for legal and factual reasons."
The verdict came as Trump attorney Jim Troupis faced a barrage of questions about his demands from both Liberal and Conservative judges on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
Troupis asked the court to discard more than 221,000 postal ballot papers, including his own, saying they were fraudulently cast by election officials based on misinterpretations of the law.
"You want us to overturn this election so that your king stays in power," said Liberal Judge Jill Karofsky.
"It's so un-American."
Conservative judges appeared to be okay with some of the questions Trump raised, but also raised the question of how they could fair disqualify ballots only in the two counties where Trump was seeking a recount, and not other counties where the same procedures were in place were.
Biden's attorney, John Devaney, said throwing ballots in only those two counties would be in violation of the constitution's non-treatment clause.

Trump only challenges ballots in Milwaukee and Dane counties, the most liberal counties in the state with the largest non-white populations.
He doesn't challenge votes in more conservative countries where he's won.
"This lawsuit, Mr. Troupis, smells like racism," Karofsky said.
“I don't know how you can get to this court and possibly ask for a means unknown in US history. … It is not normal. & # 39;
Justice Rebecca Dallet, another Liberal Justice, questioned why Trump didn't raise the same postal voting concerns in the Wisconsin election he won in Wisconsin.
Troupis said Trump was not a harmed party this year.
Chief Justice Patience Roggensack, a Conservative, raised concerns about the ballots the City of Madison collected in parks over two weekends, saying it was the same as an early vote that has not yet started.

Conservative Justice Rebecca Bradley also implied that the court must not allow ballot papers to be counted if they break the law.
However, she asked how the court could pretty much disqualify more than 28,000 ballots cast by people who said they were indefinite, as there were a few.
The court said in March that it was up to individual voters to decide whether they were "indefinitely". A designation allowed voters to hand in postal ballot papers without presenting a valid photo ID.
During Saturday's clashes, other Conservative judges raised concerns about allowing election officials to fill in missing information on envelopes containing postal ballot papers.
And Troupis, who voted this way, said he believes his vote was cast illegally and should be discounted.
Biden won Wisconsin by around 20,600 votes, a 0.6 percent lead that stood up to a Trump-requested recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties.
Biden's attorney asked the court to rule before Monday if Wisconsin's 10 electoral college votes are to be cast for Biden.
Trump asked for a decision before January 6, the day Congress counts the votes of the electoral college.
Trump and his allies have suffered dozens of defeats in Wisconsin and across the country based on unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud and election abuse.
Also on Saturday, former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell asked the Supreme Court to hear a federal case it lost in Wisconsin to order the GOP-controlled legislature to declare Trump the winner.
Powell has lost similar cases in Georgia and Arizona.
Wisconsin's highest court agreed to take the case on Trump's urgent motion on Friday shortly after a state judge ruled against him and the electoral college election waned on Monday and the state's 10 electoral votes were close to Biden.
The court is controlled 4: 3 by Conservatives, but its willingness to take the case isn't necessarily an indicator of how it will decide.

The court previously refused to hear the case before going to court, and a majority of judges have openly questioned whether Trump's appeal is appropriate.
Trump sought to have more than 221,000 ballots disqualified in Dane and Milwaukee counties.
He wanted to disqualify postal ballot papers submitted in person early on and said no proper written request had been made for the ballot papers. Postal ballot papers from people claiming "indefinitely" status; Postal ballot papers collected by campaign workers in Madison Parks; and postal ballot papers, where employees filled in missing information on ballot envelopes.
The Circuit Judge ruled Friday that none of Trump's arguments were valid and that state law was followed during the election and subsequent recount.
