Anyone who uses the likes of Twitter and is even partially in the ‘Motorcycle Scene’ has probably heard of ‘Bikers for Trump’. They are a ‘pro Trump’ biker group that was founded and is led by Chris Cox.
Cox spoke with ‘Fox & Friends’ earlier this week, and said “We don’t have any reason to believe that we’re going to have any problems”. He explains that “Bikers for Trump is a patriotic group ready to protect all Americans during inauguration weekend and that its roughly 200,000 members trust that law enforcement can do the job.”
Cox went on to say that “In the event that we are needed, we will certainly form a wall of meat. We’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers. And we’ll be toe-to-toe with anyone who’s going to break through police barricades.”
Bikers for Trump is one of 20 odd that applied for a federal permit for Inauguration Day. It has been granted space at John Marshall Park, along the Inaugural Parade route on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The group formed about 15 months ago and became a familiar sight on the 2016 presidential campaign trail, particularly during the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July, when members went toe-to-toe with anti-Trump protesters.
Cox suggested that “times have changed” since Cleveland and the other angry protests of last year, particularly those in Arizona and Chicago.
Inauguration Day is Friday 20th January.
