Daily US Times: On Saturday night, President Donald Trump appeared to embrace the actions of supporters in Texas who surrounded Democratic candidate Joe Biden’s campaign bus in what a Biden campaign official described as an attempt to slow down the bus and run it off the road.
The US president tweeted a video of the caravan surrounding the Biden bus with the caption, “I LOVE TEXAS!”
Bill Russo, a spokesman for Biden, responded to the President’s tweet by pointing to reports that Trump’s campaign was not prepared to shuttle attendees who had been bused to a rally at a Pennsylvania airport back afterward, leading to a chaotic situation with Trump’s supporters walking across roads to cars parked miles away.
Russo said on Twitter: “For the second time in a week your campaign has left your supporters stranded in the cold with no transportation at one of your superspreader rallies.”
He suggested Mr Trump to spend more time worried about those buses than theirs.
The episode was an ugly closing note to this year’s presidential campaign, which in Texas has seen record-breaking early vote.
On Friday, the Biden campaign bus traveling from San Antonio to Austin as part of a push to urge Biden supporters to cast their ballots on the state’s last day of early voting.
The vehicles were a “Trump Train group”, a source familiar with the incident said. These groups, Trump supporters, are known in parts of the state and organize events that involve their vehicles with Trump paraphernalia, flags and drive around to show support for President Donald Trump.
