Donald Trump Rally Goer Takes Credit for ‘Biden Hog-Tied’ Truck

A Donald Trump rally goer took credit for the “Biden hog-tied” truck in an interview shared on social media on Saturday.

In March, Trump, the presumed GOP presidential nominee, shared a video on his social media platform Truth Social showing a pick-up truck driving down a highway on Long Island, New York, with a decal depicting President Joe Biden, Trump’s likely opponent in November’s election, hog-tied as if he had been taken captive in the back of the truck.

During an interview live streamed by Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) at a Trump campaign event in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, a supporter of the former president proudly said, “Google ‘Biden hog tied.’ You’ll see me all over the news.”

He then pointed and said: “Truck’s right over there.”

Newsweek reached out to Trump’s and Biden’s campaign via email for comment.

Meanwhile, Trump received a lot of backlash after posting the video of the pick-up truck.

Former Republican Representative Joe Walsh told CNN in March: “This is way beyond politics, this is an incitement to violence.” Walsh previously represented Illinois’ 8th Congressional District from 2011 to 2013 and later emerged as an outspoken critic of Trump. He now identifies as an independent.

Michael Tyler, the Biden campaign’s communications director, said at the time, “Trump is regularly inciting political violence and it’s time people take him seriously — just ask the Capitol police officers who were attacked protecting our democracy on January 6 [2021].”

In response to the criticism, Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said in a previous statement that the “picture was on the back of a pickup truck that was traveling down the highway. Democrats and crazed lunatics have not only called for despicable violence against President Trump and his family, they are actually weaponizing the justice system against him.”

Attorney and legal analyst Andrew Weissmann even suggested that Trump may have committed a new crime by posting the video.

“Threatening the president of the United States is a crime,” he told MSNBC last month. “The legal question and factual one is whether what he has engaged in with respect to posting the image of Joe Biden bound and gagged with what appears to be a bullet hole in his head constitutes that kind of threat.”

Trump is already facing four criminal indictments, all of which he has pleaded not guilty to. The indictments accuse Trump of election inference on the state and federal level, mishandling classified documents and obstructing the government’s efforts to retrieve them, and falsifying business records relating to a hush money payment made to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign.
