FBI Investigating Trump Backers Who Surrounded Biden Bus

President Donald Trump lashed out at the FBI after the agency said it was investigating reports that a caravan of the president’s supporters harassed a bus belonging to Joe Biden’s campaign in Texas, NBC News reports. “In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong,” he tweeted. “Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA, who run around burning down our Democrat run cities and hurting our people!” Video of the incident, which occurred on Friday, showed Trump supporters surrounding the Biden campaign bus with their vehicles. The footage showed two cars colliding, and the Biden campaign said the pro-Trump trucks tried to run the bus off the road as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin.

“You see the way our people, they — you know they were protecting his bus yesterday,” Trump told supporters in Michigan. “Because they’re nice. So his bus — they had hundreds of cars, Trump, Trump, Trump and the American flag.” Biden responded to the incident  Sunday during an event in Pennsylvania, noting that the president had also tweeted praise for his supporters involved. “Folks, that’s not who we are,” Biden said. “We are so much better than this.”
