I drove by a Trump Train on a major highway last weekend, it’s dangerously distracting even if they aren’t surrounding you and trying to run you off the road. Cars and SUVs are weapons. Be careful, everyone. pic.twitter.com/ezGMAzDCRD

The FBI is investigating a “Trump Train” incident from Friday, in which a Biden campaign bus was surrounded by a dozen pickup trucks driven by Trump supporters as it traveled down a Texas interstate, according to a report.
The dangerous, caught-on-video highway confrontation led the Biden campaign and state Democrats to cancel multiple Texas events in the battleground state, the Texas Tribune reported.
At least one minor collision was caused by the swarming of the bus along I-35 by the caravan of trucks full of Trump flag- and American flag-waving passengers, according to the Tribune.
Those inside the trucks honked their horns and shouted while surrounding the Biden bus and slowing it down, witnesses told the paper.
Texas congressional candidate Wendy Davis was on the Biden bus at the time it was swarmed, the paper reported.
Friday’s incident had been promoted in advance online under the hashtag #FollowTheBus, the paper said.
“Trolling is Fun!” one post said. “Join us in #SanAntonio to escort the Biden bus coming through San Antonio,” it urged.
“We are on the bridges & will intercept at Walters/I35!!”
In all, some 40-to-50 vehicles participated, local Biden campaign volunteer Eric Cervini told the paper, describing the trucks decorated with Trump and American flags he saw gathered along the side of the interstate.
This is terrifying and incredibly unsafe, so of course, Trump loved it.

And if there had been a fatality he could likely have loved it even more.
