Chris Cox of Bikers for Trump Will Form at Inauguration And Go Head to Head with Violent Protesters.
5,000 pro-Trump bikers will form at inauguration and go head-to-head with violent protesters
More than 5,000 bikers are expected to descend on Washington, DC, for the inauguration of Donald Trump on Friday in a dramatic display of support.
Chris Cox, 48, is organizing what he hopes will be a sizable rally for America’s pro-Trump bikers, complete with musical performances and speakers – and he says they will have another purpose.
‘In the event that we are needed, we will form a wall of meat,’ he told Fox & Friends Saturday, adding that while the group is non-violent, they would stand up to any dangerous protesters.
‘We’ll be shoulder to shoulder with our brothers and we’ll be toe-to-toe with anyone who’s going to break through police barriers,’ he said. Despite his fighting talk, Cox said that he expects a peaceful transition and that his team will only be there was a last resort to deal with people who are ‘assaulting women, spitting on them, throwing things at them’.
Bikers for Trump has 200,000 members, Cox claims, and he hopes they will draw in more from the nation’s millions of motorcycle enthusiasts – particularly the many veterans and blue-collar workers supportive of Trump’s presidency.
Cox started the group during the early days of Trump’s campaign.
He says he was energized by the then-unlikely candidate’s rhetoric – particularly his demands for a hands-off, small government.
It was that message, the traveling chainsaw artist explained, that made him an unlikely supporter of the Manhattan billionaire.
‘I’m not going to spend much time critiquing the vessel of the message,’ Cox told The Washington Post. ‘It’s the message I’m interested in.’
He also says that despite the image of bikers as white supremacists, Bikers for Trump is a multiracial group that pushes for ‘racial reconciliation’. Cox has another motive: He’s hoping to promote a bill that lobbied for, which calls for national parks and monuments to remain open even when Washington is closed.
That bill has been snarled up in red tape, and Cox – who also made headlines in 2013 when he mowed the lawn around the Lincoln Memorial during the government shutdown – hopes that Trump will help.
‘My goal is for the bill not only to pass, but for it to pass with the most co-sponsors in the history of the House of Representatives,’ he said.
‘I’m optimistic that when Donald Trump sees it, he’ll be for it.’ Cox has met Trump a number of times before – and says that the President-elect even called him to thank him for his organizing efforts.
But he said he didn’t ask Trump about the bill.
‘I didn’t want to bog him down with anything unrelated,’ he explained. ‘It was a matter-of-fact conversation that I would have with my friends. We laughed a bunch.’
Bikers from all over the country are headed to DC for the Trump inauguration. They vow to stop any protesters who use violence. The 1st amendment guarantees the right to PEACEFULLY assemble. It DOES NOT guarantee the right to riot or vandalize property.
