Trump Supporters Left Stranded After Rally Organizers Fail To Pay Bus Company: ‘The Credit Card Declined’
The Daily Beast reported Friday that hundreds of Trump supporters this week were left stranded by bus company U.S. Coachways after the organizers for a “March for Trump” rally in Washington D.C. failed to pay them.
The avid Trump fans had expected U.S. Coachways to pick them up and bring them to D.C. where they were set to rally against House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. After the buses never showed up, however, Trump supporters claimed that the bus company was part of a “deep state” conspiracy aimed at silencing their voices.
In reality, The Beast reports, U.S. Coachways’ chief marketing officer Joseph Heap tells Sommer, the company withheld the buses because multiple credit card payments made by Trump rally organizers were declined.
“We want to get people down there,” he said. “But unfortunately, payment is required.”
This did not stop Trump supporters from claiming that the company was part of a sinister plot to silence them, however.
