Thousands of protesters have made it clear they will be marching and protesting against Trump’s inauguration in Washington, D.C., but another organization is stepping up to counter the protests.
Chris Cox, founder of Bikers For Trump, said in an interview with Fox & Friends Saturday that his organization intends to form a “wall of meat” around Donald Trump’s inauguration, to offer protection to the ceremonies in case the anti-Trump protests get out of hand.
Cox said they have grown from about 100 bikers at their first rally in Virginia in October 2015, to their current membership of around 200,000 nationwide. Just last week, 20,000 new members joined the group.
The bikers are headed to Washington, D.C. from all across the nation, and Cox said they intend to prevent protesters from breaking through any police barriers.
Update: Trump has now responded to the news – with a tweet, of course.
People are pouring into Washington in record numbers. Bikers for Trump are on their way. It will be a great Thursday, Friday and Saturday!

This isn’t the first time Chris Cox has stepped up for America. Three years ago, during the government shut-down, he took his lawnmower to the capital and started mowing lawns and cleaning up trash around the memorials.
