slams FBI for investigating Texas MAGA convoy that 'ambushed' Biden bus

President Donald has doubled down on his support for a convoy of MAGA fans accused of trying to run a Biden campaign bus off the road in Texas. 

weighed in on Twitter on Sunday night, after the FBI confirmed that it had opened an investigation into the confrontation between the 50-strong convoy and the Biden bus on Friday afternoon on Interstate 35 in Hays County, Texas. 

'In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong,' the president wrote. 'Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA, who run around burning down our Democrat run cities and hurting our people!'  

had previously indicated his support for the convoy on Saturday by tweeting a video of MAGA flag-flying cars surrounding the Biden bus as it made its way down the highway, writing: 'I LOVE TEXAS.' 

Other videos shared on social media painted a more dangerous portrait of the confrontation, showing cars driving perilously close to the bus and at one point even running into a Biden staff member's car.  

The confrontation resulted in Democrats cancelling three scheduled events in the state - which is considered a battleground amid a surge in early-voting. 

Joe Biden attacked 's support for the convoy participants between campaign stops in Philadelphia on Sunday, saying: 'We've never had anything like this. At least we've never had a president who thinks it's a good thing.'

Biden's campaign had planned to hold multiple events in Texas over the weekend as part of its effort to shore up support there before the election.

But, as the Biden bus and supporters drove through the state, traveling from Loredo, to San Antonio and Austin, they were met by convoys of supporters who harassed them, as seen in several viral videos.  

One of the videos - tweeted by - allegedly showed a convoy trying to run the Biden bus off the road near San Marcos.  

The video was scored by Tech N9ne's song Red Kingdom and showed multiple flag-flying trucks driving very close to the Biden, as if escorting it, as they all barreled down the highway.

A Biden campaign staffer told The Daily Beast that the supporters seen in that video had slowed down in front of the Biden bus, attempting to either stop it or run the bus off the road. 

Staffers eventually called police, who helped the Biden bus reach its destination. 

Historian Dr Eric Cervini, who said he flew down to Texas to help with the Biden campaign's bus tour, tweeted several videos of the confrontation, including one which showed the convoy waiting on the side of the highway before the bus passed.   

'See all these pickup trucks with flags? They were sitting along I-35, waiting to ambush the Biden/Harris campaign bus as it traveled from San Antonio to Austin,' Cervini wrote.  

'These supporters, many of whom were armed, surrounded the bus on the interstate and attempted to drive it off the road.'   

Cervini said he spent much of the day on the phone with 911 operators trying to ensure safe passage for the bus.  

'[The convoy] outnumbered police 50-1, and they ended up hitting a staffer's car,' he wrote. 

'The police refused to help. When I flagged down one officer, he said his hands were tied: "not my jurisdiction."

'Understandably, though nobody was hurt, the rest of the tour was cancelled.'
