Delta Air Lines announced on Thursday that it has banned people described as Trump supporters involved in heckling two Republican Senators at airports from being able to fly on their airline.
“Sen. Lindsey Graham was verbally harassed by at least a couple dozen Donald Trump supporters at Reagan National Airport on Friday after his public break with the president, according to a person at the scene who provided a video of the incident,” Politico reported last week. “Several people repeatedly loudly yelled at the South Carolina Republican that he was a ‘traitor.’ One woman called him a ‘liar,’ while another said, ‘You work for the people, you work for us, do you hear me?’ They promised not to touch him as he was surrounded by security.”
The other incident involved Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, who was also confronted at an airport last week.
“In the nearly two minute video posted Tuesday evening, Romney is seen wearing a mask and typing on a laptop while sitting alone at the airport when he is approached by a Trump supporter, who calls him a ‘disgusting shame,’” Desert News reported. “The video was posted by the Twitter account Qtah — a mashup of QAnon and the state of Utah.”
Reuters reported on Thursday that Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian revealed the company’s decision to ban those involved in harassing the two.
“Turning to disruption on recent U.S. flights by supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump, Bastian said Delta has placed passengers involved in incidents that targeted senators Mitt Romney and Lindsey Graham on its no-fly list,” Reuters reported.
