VIDEO: Police Barred Doors From Outside, Locked Trump Supporters in DC Hotels
Video footage shot in the nation’s capital appears to show a group of Trump supporters being locked inside their hotel by Metropolitan Police officers following Wednesday’s protests against the certification of electoral votes on Capitol Hill.
As the group of the President’s supporters watched from the hotel’s lobby, an officer wearing sergeant’s stripes can be seen shoving a bar between the two front doors in an effort to lock the group inside, before tauntingly waving at onlookers through a set of windows.
“That’s a fire hazard!” several can be heard shouting to no avail.
“Look at what Officer Weinfeld did for us,” a woman says, “he gave us a fire hazard.”
“Now we can’t get out,” a man then says.
The video, posted to Twitter Friday morning by The Red Elephants’ Vincent James, has quickly begun to go viral.
