President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that the “thugs” who harassed an elderly white couple dining outdoors at a Pittsburgh restaurant are “anarchists” who are voting for Joe Biden.
Trump took to social media to write about the incident, which was captured on video, and blamed Democrats for allowing “thuggery” to continue to take place.
The viral video shows several people shouting at the couple. One woman walks over to their table and drinks from one of their beverage cups. According to Fox News, local authorities say they are investigating the incident.
“BLM Protesters horribly harass elderly Pittsburgh diners, scaring them with loud taunts while taking their food right off their plate,” Trump posted on Twitter. “These Anarchists, not protesters, are Biden voters, but he has no control and nothing to say. Disgraceful. Never seen anything like it. Thugs!”
He added: “....And because of weak and pathetic Democrat leadership, this thuggery is happening in other Democrat run cities and states. Must shut them down fast.”
Trump also accused Biden’s running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., of staying silent when incidents like the one in Pittsburgh occur.
“Biden and his most Liberal in Senate running mate, Kamala, won’t even talk about it,” he wrote. “They won’t utter the words, LAW & ORDER!”
Biden has said he condemns “violence in any form,” Fox News reports.
He told a local Pennsylvania NBC news affiliate WGAL that he is against violence “across the board,” including from Antifa protesters.
