“I LOVE TEXAS!” posted the president over a video of a truck nearly sideswiping Biden’s campaign bus on Interstate 35 near Austin.
The Texas Tribune reported Saturday that the FBI is investigating the incident.
Scores of trucks bristling with Make America Great Again signs and flags swarmed the bus and accompanying vehicles on Friday, jamming traffic and creating a dangerous situation for the Biden crew and anyone else on the highway.
A large pickup truck at one point struck a white SUV driven by a Democratic campaign staffer, Katie Naranjo, chair of the Travis County Democratic Party. The truck pushed the car from its lane, causing damage to the car in an aggressive and risky stunt.
A Biden rally planned for later that afternoon was canceled after the highway confrontation.
The chairman of the Texas Republican Party, Allen West, was furious when a reporter asked him about the incident.
West claimed without any evidence that three Trump supporters had been “executed” in Milwaukee, Portland and Denver. He also said that a “leftist mob” attempted to “storm the house” of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, and “burn the house down and rape Mrs. McCloskey.” None of that is true.
Officials have reported no “executions” of Trump supporters in those cities. As for the McCloskeys, the white couple pointed automatic weapons at peaceful Black protesters outside their St. Louis home in June. The couple has been charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon.
“Where’s the liberal corporate media’s outrage concern about that real violence?” West asked.
