Biden and his wife were going up the stairs of their plane at Johnsonstown-Cumbria County Airport when a photographer walked around the rear of the plane and the area under the wing of the plane before being physically removed by the Secret Service Contacted. The man was credited for covering an earlier event and opposed the Secret Service upon encountering him.
A spokesman for the Secret Service told The Hill, “A member of the media was credited with attempting to reach the airport’s tarmac for the departure of presidential candidate Biden for an incident earlier in the day.” “The man faced law enforcement, disobeyed his instructions, and reached Tarmac. US Secret Service personnel caught the person and drove him out of the area. ”
The Biden campaign declined to comment, citing The Secret Service to The Hill.
As part of its security procedures during the coronovirus epidemic, the Biden campaign allows a small “pool” of press corps of about 12 people to follow the former vice president on the trail. The Secret Service allows pool members each morning to travel with the expedition.
Biden was given full Secret Service protection in March when protesters attended an event onstage and were removed by security.
The former vice president traveled from Delaware to New York and Pennsylvania on Friday to commemorate the events commemorating the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
