“We’re here to stand with law enforcement,” biker spokesman says.
Motorcyclists supportive of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump have arrived to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention.
“Bikers for Trump” organizer Chris Cox told MSNBC he expects anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 bikers riding around the convention in order to be a “calming factor” against agitators wishing to carry out violence.
“We feel like it’s open season on law enforcement, there’s an assault on decency, and we’re here to stand with law enforcement, and in the event that we’re needed we’ll step up,” Cox said.
“The bikers are citizen crusaders from all walks of life,” he added.
Yesterday’s tweets show a huge number of bikers rolling and assembling, with around 3000 of them being in town already.
