Some of the signs seen at the Melbourne rally continued the baseless claims that have been issued by the US President since November 3.

One said 'Stop the steal!', another said 'Stop Biden stealing the election', 'no socialism, no communist, no Biden'.

The protest was live-streamed on social media and many couldn't believe it Trumpism managed to make its way to Australia.

One viewer wrote: "Don't drink and Facebook kids. You'll end up squishy brained like these muppets."

Another added: "If you're pro protectionist and nationalist, why are you concerning your self with the affairs of other states?"

A third said: "What is it about certain Australians that makes them adopt American political culture as though it were our own?"

The Melbourne rally came before violent scenes unfolded in Washington D.C., where Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building.

Hundreds rallied outside the building and clashed with police while several others broken into the Capitol and went door to door.
