Delta issues lifetime ban for passenger who went on viral Trump tirade

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."

"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.
