Trump encountered the protester shortly after entering the Capitol with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Multiple reporters present said the man repeatedly yelled “Trump is treason” before being apprehended by Capitol police.
“We should be taking about treason in Congress, not about tax cuts,” the man yelled.
Trump is set to attend Senate Republicans’ policy lunch Tuesday afternoon to discuss the administration’s effort to overhaul the tax system.
