BLM Protesters horribly harass elderly Pittsburgh diners, scaring them with loud taunts while taking their food right off their plate. These Anarchists, not protesters, are Biden voters, but he has no control and nothing to say. Disgraceful. Never seen anything like it. Thugs!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 8, 2020
The Democrat National Committee, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris have fully embraced the movement.
