Following the debacle over a controversial video showing several “Bikers for Trump” removing a person of color from a Trump rally over the weekend because they mistook him for a protester, Bikers for Trump member Dennis Egbert said that the president has personally thanked him for the unofficial security “services” that he and his friends provide at rallies,” according to Politico.
Egbert told Politico that Trump is a big believer in the extra “security” at rallies.
Trump — who has promoted the biker group on his Twitter account, touting their presence at his inauguration — has personally thanked egbert for his rally security work on three separate occasions,” Politico writes.
The publication also quotes Egbert as saying of Trump, “If I was doing anything wrong, he would’ve told me.”
The controversial clip posted this past weekend, Bikers for Trump members can be seen approaching a rally goer named Neil Makhija and physically forcing him out of the arena, despite the fact that Makhija claims he was not doing any protesting at the event and was simply there to watch the event.
