DONALD Trump Jr blasted BLM protesters who "attacked" Rand Paul and his wife and other Republicans as "fascist Biden supporters."
The president's son took to Twitter to decry the scenes outside the Republican National Convention (RNC), where demonstrators hurled insults at attendees.
"Are we still pretending that these Biden supporters aren’t the fascists they claim to be against?" Don Jr wrote, with a link to a couple being followed by protesters.
"Did you see the idiots that attacked @randpaul last night?" he continued in another tweet.
"He was a CHAMPION for the passage of the First Step Act, has authored 20+ criminal justice bills, including one LITERALLY called the Justice for Breonna Taylor Act. Why is Joe Biden silent on these acts of violence?"
A Daily Caller journalist had shared footage of multiple RNC attendees apparently being harassed as they left the event.
Paul had previously described how he feared he and his wife would get "senselessly" beaten after he said they were "attacked."
He said they were accosted by a "crazed mob" of more than 100 Black Lives Matter demonstrators and anti-Trump activists yesterday.
They had to be rescued by cops who Rand credited with saving their lives as they left Donald Trump's acceptance speech on the White House lawn.
Speaking about the ordeal on "Fox & Friends" the next day, Paul said he believed they would have been killed.
The Republican senator had part of his lung removed after he was assaulted by a neighbor in 2017, Fox News noted.
"It was horrific," he said. "They're attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he's trying to catch his balance.
"I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he's OK because he's our defense. If he's down, the mob's loose on us."
"I truly believe this with every fiber of my being, had they gotten at us they would have gotten us to the ground, we might not have been killed, might just have been injured by being kicked in the head, or kicked in the stomach until we were senseless.
"That would have happened to us, I promise you, had we not had the D.C. Police to support us, we are thankful we have police, and we've got to wake up."
Paul cited his experience an an example of why the police should not be defunded or abolished during the dramatic segment.
The protesters were gathered for the final day of the Republican National Convention where they earlier tried to drown out Trump's speech.
