Video from the day before the vote shows Romney confronted by hecklers at the airport in Salt Lake City and subsequently heckled while aboard a flight to Washington, D.C. The Utah senator had previously indicated that he would not challenge the Electoral College vote.
"Why aren't you supporting President Trump?” one woman asked Romney while he was waiting at the gate. Video shared on Twitter shows Trump supporters screaming at Romney on the plane, with one yelling at him to resign.
Congress ultimately certified the Electoral College vote, though it was delayed by hours after a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol, forcing lawmakers to evacuate.
Graham was harassed at an airport in D.C. on Friday. Video of the incident shows a group following Graham through the airport.
Some can be heard screaming “audit the vote” and “you know it was rigged,” in reference to the presidential election.
In a statement to The Hill, Delta confirmed the Reuters report but did not offer any additional details on the ban.
The ban comes as the Federal Aviation Administration said it will tighten enforcement of penalties against passengers that physically or verbally threaten airline crew or passengers.
The Associated Press reported that the agency cited a “disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior” due to passengers refusing to wear masks and violence at the U.S. Capitol.
