Motorcyclists supportive of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump are arriving in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention.
“Bikers for Trump” organizer Chris Cox told MSNBC he expects anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 bikers riding around the convention in order to be a “calming factor” against agitators wishing to carry out violence.
“We feel like it’s open season on law enforcement, there’s an assault on decency, and we’re here to stand with law enforcement, and in the event that we’re needed we’ll step up,” Cox said.
“The bikers are citizen crusaders from all walks of life,” he added.
Tweets show numerous bikers rolling in and assembling, with some estimating 3,000 are already in town.

In an interview with Breibart, Cox reiterated that bikers were on hand to prevent violence from protest groups.
“We will be there to make sure that the delegates are allowed to exercise their right to peacefully assemble,” Cox said. “We’ve seen how these paid agitators have thrown eggs and gotten violent at other Trump events around the country and we’re not going to put up with it.”
“Veterans are the backbone of the biker community,” Cox told Breitbart. “We are patriots and unlike Black Lives Matter and the other leftist idiots, we love our cops. You won’t find one biker in Cleveland jumping on cars, lighting fires, or doing any of the other stupid things we’ve gotten used to seeing on TV the last few months.”
