President Donald Trump asserted on Monday that the FBI is not investigating a group of his supporters who endangered a Biden campaign bus in Texas over the weekend.
Trump made the statement in a tweet after multiple outlets reported that the FBI was investigating the incident.
"This story is FALSE," Trump wrote. "They did nothing wrong. But the ANTIFA Anarchists, Rioters and Looters, who have caused so much harm and destruction in Democrat run cities, are being seriously looked at!"

On Sunday, Trump had argued that his supporters were trying to "protect" the Biden campaign bus by surrounding it on a busy highway.
