President Trump condemned a terrifying van attack on a GOP registration site in Jacksonville, Florida.
“We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers,” said Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black. “The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced.”

Volunteers were inside the tent in a Walmart parking lot when a man drove a van through the tent – sending some elderly citizens scrambling to safety.
“It happened so quickly,” Duval County GOP volunteer Nina Williams told News4Jax.com. “I just barely got out of the way.”
The Sheriff’s Office told the Florida Times-Union that the suspect pulled up toward the tent then accelerated through the tent as volunteers jumped out of the way. Law enforcement sais the driver then stopped, got out of the vehicle and took video of the scene before he “flipped off” the victims.
The sheriff’s department has charged Gregory William Loel Timm with two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years old or older, one count of criminal mischief and a single count of driving with a licensed suspended.
The sheriff’s department said it’s too soon to determine the motive of the attack.
“We don’t know if this is politically motivated,” Gayle told News4Jax.com. “We’ve got detectives coming out. We’re following up on information and trying to determine if we can identify this person right now.”
I’m going to take a wild leap here and suggest that it was some sort of far-left lunatic infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome who was acting on Rep. Maxine Waters call to absolutely harass Trump supporters in grocery stores and shopping centers.
That’s my working theory. Those dear patriots were targeted because they are conservatives.
“Law Enforcement has been notified. Be careful tough guys who you play with,” President Trump tweeted.
RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel was rightfully furious over the politically-motivated attack.
“These unprovoked, senseless attacks on @realDonaldTrump‘s supporters need to end. I want to echo the @DuvalGOP in saying: We will not be silenced by cowards, and these disgusting acts will only make us work harder to win November,” she wrote on Twitter.
And I call on every Democrat running for the White House to publicly condemn this cowardly attack. I also call on Rep. Maxine Waters to publicly tell her goons to stand down. Stop terrorizing conservatives.
