Supporters of President Donald Trump are preparing for the “Mother of all Rallies” next month in Washington.

They could be marching side by side with Juggalos in the nation’s capital.

According to CBS News, fans of the music group Insane Clown Posse are planning to “rise up and unite to clear our name” with their own rally to protest the FBI, which called Juggalos a “loosely organized hybrid gang” in a 2011 report.

Both rallies are set for Sept. 16, and both groups are planning to assemble on National Mall.

The Juggalos and organizers of the Trump rally say they’re planning nonviolent protests, but fears of clashes are heightened in wake of events last weekend in Charlottesville, Va.
