Passengers on a Delta Airlines flight from Washington D.C. have allegedly been kicked off an airplane for supporting President Donald Trump.
The passengers told a local news outlet that they were removed from the flight on Friday after one of them said “Trump 2020” and the other cheered.
“I said Trump 2020 and they kicked me off the plane,” the male passenger told SNN News.
“All I did was cheer,” one of the women said in tears. “I have no money to get home. This is communist China now.”
The incident, which was captured on video and later uploaded to social media, shows at least three people exiting the aircraft as some passengers can be heard shouting, “Get off the plane,” while others reply saying, “Freedom of speech.”
