During a campaign stop in Michigan earlier in the day, Trump said: "Did you see our people yesterday? They were protecting his bus. "
Speaking about the incident on the campaign trail on Sunday in Philadelphia, Biden said: "We've never had anything like this. At least we've never had a president who thinks it's a good thing. "
Neither Biden nor his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, was aboard the bus. The Texas Tribune reported passengers included Democratic U. S. House of Representatives candidate and former Texas state Senator Wendy Davis. Texas state Representative Terry Canales, a Democrat, sent the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) a letter calling for an inquiry into what he called "criminal behavior" by the pro-Trump caravan drivers.
A reporter for the Austin-Statesman newspaper said on Twitter that DPS "has now opened an investigation" of the incident, but Reuters was unable to immediately verify this.
The highway confrontation came as polls showed an unexpectedly tight race between Biden and Trump in Texas, which has long been a Republican stronghold.
"Rather than engage in productive conversation about the drastically different visions that Joe Biden and Donald Trump have for our country, Trump supporters in Texas instead decided to put our staff, surrogates, supporters and others in harm's way, " Biden's Texas campaign spokesman, Tariq Thowfeek, said in a statement. "We'll see you on November 3rd. ".
