Biden staff call 911 after bus swarmed by Trump supporters on Texas highway.
According to the Biden campaign, the vehicles surrounded the bus, trying to slow it down in the middle of the highway or run it off the road.
Biden staff notified 911 and local law enforcement, and, they reported, local law enforcement helped the bus to reach its Austin destination.
Neither Former Vice President Joe Biden nor California Sen. Kamala Harris were on the bus, CNN reports.
“Rather than engage in productive conversation about the drastically different visions that Joe Biden and Donald Trump have for our country, Trump supporters in Texas instead decided to put our staff, surrogates, supporters, and others in harm’s way,” Tariq Thowfeek, Texas communications director of the Biden campaign, said in a statement Saturday.
The state party and the Biden campaign did not seek to draw much attention to the highway encounter between the Biden-Harris bus and one of the car caravans of Trump supporters that have come to be known as Trump Trains.
They included Dr. Eric Cervini, a historian and author from Los Angeles who came to Texas to help the Biden campaign. »
