Donald Trump Says “A Person You Know” Saw A Plane Fill With Looters And Rioters
Donald Trump insists that there’s some conspiracy of “dark shadows” that involve “thugs wearing dark uniforms,” filling an airplane. He started sharing the inexplicable story in an interview with Laura Ingraham, and added to it on Wednesday. As he clarified his story, he filled in a few more details, but offered no supporting evidence, or any clues that would confirm what exactly he was actually talking about, and wether any version of it actually happened.
In a Fox News interview aired Tuesday evening, Donald Trump told Laura Ingraham about a plane full of “thugs” wearing “dark uniforms.”

We had somebody get on a plane from a certain city this weekend, and on the plane, it was almost completely loaded with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms, with gear and this and that.
As seen in video below by The Recount, Trump added to the story on Wednesday, now saying that some person — “this would be a person you know” — got onto a plane (he doesn’t identify where). On the plane, there were only about 6 people who were “like that person, more or less.” Trump doesn’t identify what trait these few people had in common — race, employment type, or exactly what, but suggests that the plane then began to fill up with people who apparently did not share that trait — presumably the ones he described the night before as “thugs.” In this new clarification, he calls them “the looters, the anarchists, the rioters, people that obviously were looking for trouble.” He says the unidentified person who shared the story with him “felt very uncomfortable on the plane.”
Trump doubles down on his Antifa Plane conspiracy theory: "A person was on a plane, said there were about 6 people like that person, more or less, and what happened is the entire plane filled up with the looters, the anarchists, rioters, people looking for trouble." pic.twitter.com/pcLwuM2Acb

There have been no recent accounts of any planes overcome by hordes of troublemakers in black uniforms, or of any looting or rioting on any planes. However, Trump says that he’ll ask the unnamed person for permission to share their name, so they can be asked to explain the story more clearly.
