The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States is investigating the alleged harassment of a Joe Biden campaign bus last week by motorists displaying Trump 2020 flags, according to CNN.
Campaigners for US Democratic Presidential nominee, Biden, were forced to cancel an event in Texas on Friday.
The gathering, scheduled to take place in Pflugerville, a small city about 17 miles north of Austin, was cancelled by local democrats due to “security reasons”.
A dozen of US President Donald Trump’s supporters, who were allegedly armed, had allegedly harassed the campaign bus.
CNN quoted a Biden campaign official as describing the motorists’ actions as an attempt to slow down the bus and run it off the road.
People in vehicles that were part of a “Trump Train” began yelling profanities and obscenities and then blockaded the entire Biden entourage, another source familiar with the incident told the American media outfit.
Biden staffers were said to have been rattled by the event but no one was hurt.
Neither Biden nor his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, were on the bus.
On Saturday, President Trump tweeted a video of the bus incident with the words “I LOVE TEXAS!”, and claimed at a campaign rally on Sunday that his supporters were “protecting” the bus.
“But it is something, did you see the way our people they … you know they were protecting his bus yesterday, because they’re nice,” Trump said.
The Republican nominee and Biden will face off on Election Day Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
