A pilot of an American Airlines flight that made the journey from Washington DC to Phoenix threatened to stop the plane and expel to several passengers off the plane if they didn’t behave. Through the loudspeakers the aviator asked the tourists, Donald Trump supporters, to stay calm and stop bothering other people. “It’s a four-and-a-half hour flight to Phoenix. I don’t mind leaving this plane in the middle of Kansas and dumping people, I don’t care. We’ll do it if that’s what it takes. So behave yourself, please.”
A tourist recorded the sequence in disbelief of what was happening. In the graphic document you can see how several people shout “United States” and “fight for Trump.” Mindy robinson, another passenger who was also traveling on the same flight, confirmed that when Donald Trump’s followers began to chant his name, the aviator warned them that he would expel them if they did not obey “each and every one of his rules.” Precisely, this incident happened two days later of the assault by a group of ‘trumpistas’ to the United States Capitol.
