A TRUMP supporter has boasted he was the pickup truck driver who rammed a Biden campaign car in Texas – as it emerged he also drove through a crowd of BLM protesters.
After Donald Trump praised video of the highway ambush, Eliazara Cisneros claimed on Facebook: "That was me slamming that f***er. Hell yea."

Cisneros claimed he was at the wheel of the black pickup seen among a 50-strong "Trump Train" convoy surrounding a Biden campaign bus on Interstate 35 on Friday.
Footage shows the pickup – flying large pro-Trump flags – sideswiping a white SUV carrying Biden supporters and forcing it into the middle lane.
The FBI is now investigating the dangerous ambush, which caused Democrats to cancel a number of events in Texas.
But Trump insisted "these patriots did nothing wrong".
He had earlier tweeted another video of the Trump Train convoy with caption: "I LOVE TEXAS!"
Cisneros identified himself on Facebook despite the ongoing federal investigation.
And it emerged he was also the driver of a pickup that drove through a BLM rally in San Antonio in June.
No one was hurt as he went slowly through the crowd, forcing protesters to move aside.
Video of that incident showed him shouting at the demonstators: "Get the f*** out the way!"
He told local media at the time he wanted to show support for the President.
He said: "I didn't want to hurt anybody.
"You know, get off the street, get on the sidewalk and protest whatever you are protesting on the sidewalk. Stay safe."
He also shared photos on social media of guns, calling them an "Antifa Meat Tenderizer".
Texas was on a knife edge after polls closed on Tuesday night.
Donald Trump was narrowly ahead after the first votes were counted, but Biden was hopeful of being the first Democrat to take the state since Jimmy Carter in 1976.
Trump also declared victory in Florida, but Biden was looking to make gains in North Carolina and elsewhere as the race went down to the wire.
