WASHINGTON, D.C. (KGO) -- A rally is being held Saturday near The White House in support of President Trump withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Protesters are calling it the "Pittsburg, not Paris" March, which is named after Mr. Trump's remark about representing "citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris" when announcing he was ripping up the Obama-era agreement, was organized by the Republican Party of Fairfax Country, Virginia, in the D.C. suburbs.

The Trump campaign urged the president's supporters in the area to attend the event Saturday across from the White House in Lafayette Square.
