- THE EPOCH TIMES - Nov 1, 2020 -
Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign confirmed Saturday that it would cancel several events in Texas after drivers with pro-President Donald Trump flags and stickers appeared to follow and surround a Biden campaign bus.
“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 today instead decided to put our staff, surrogates, supporters, and others in harm’s way,” Biden campaign Texas communications director Tariq Thowfeek told news outlets, confirming several events would be canceled in the state.
“Our supporters will continue to organize their communities for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Democrats up and down the ballot, and to the Texans who disrupted our events today: We’ll see you on November 3rd,” Thowfeek said. The campaign also told other news outlets that the events were canceled out of an abundance of caution.
Trump’s campaign has not responded to a request for comment. Biden’s camp also has not responded. Law enforcement also has not commented on the incident.
Trump posted one clip of the incident along with praise on Twitter: “I LOVE TEXAS!”
