*The Biden campaign cancelled events in Texas on Friday due to security reasons after a caravan of Trump supporters in trucks surrounded their bus and tried to force it off the road.
The FBI announced Sunday it ss investigating the incident.
President Donald Trump responded by lashing out at the agency, claiming the group of rabid supporters “did nothing wrong” in a tweet on Sunday.
“In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong,” he said in a tweet. “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!”
These tactics have no place in Texas, my home state, and no place in America.

Trump also referenced the incident during rallies on Sunday.
“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. You see Trump and the American flag. Do you ever notice when you see the other side — I don’t even see much of the other side.”
Biden responded to the incident during an event in Pennsylvania on Sunday, noting that the president tweeted his praise for the supporters that harrassed his campaign.
“Folks, that’s not who we are,” Biden said. “We are so much better than this. We’re so much better than this. It’s not who we are.”
Biden also blasted Trump Saturday at a campaign stop in Philadelphia, comparing the president to the deadly coronavirus.
“To beat the virus, first we gotta beat Donald Trump. He’s the virus,” Biden said. “In two days we can put an end to a presidency that has fanned the flames of hate all across this nation.”
