Delta Air Lines announced on Monday that it has banned a Trump supporter, whose disturbing inflight behavior became the subject of a now-viral video, from ever flying with them again.

In the video, which has been viewed over 2 million times since it was shared on November 22, the unnamed passenger can be heard saying, "Donald Trump baby! We got some Hillary b----es on here? Come on, baby. Trump!"

"Donald Trump is your president," he continued. "Every goddamn one of you. If you don't like it, too bad."

CNBC's Steve Kopack shared the following Delta internal memo on Monday, where CEO Ed Bastian addressed the incident and shared the steps the company is taking to move forward .

Bastian commended the Delta employees who were onboard the flight in question, saying they "made the best decision they could given the information they had."

"However," he continued, "if our colleagues had witnessed firsthand what was shown in the video, there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft. He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane."

He also added that customers onboard the flight will be refunded the full cost of their tickets.
