Delta Airlines banned a passenger after his pro-Donald Trump rant was caught on camera


Delta Airlines banned a passenger for life after his expletive-filled, pro-Donald Trump rant was caught on camera. 

"Donald Trump, baby," the man yelled at other passengers in the video. "We got some Hillary b--- on here? Come on, baby. Trump!”

Despite his outburst, the man was allowed to remain on the Nov. 22 flight from Atlanta to Allentown, Pennsylvania, according to The Morning Call

Delta's chief executive said the passenger will not be flying with the airline again in an internal memo to employees.

"We are sorry to our customers who experienced this disruption," Delta said in a statement on its website. "We have followed up with the teams involved and all agree that this customer should not have been allowed to continue on the flight."

The statement continued: "Our responsibility for ensuring all customers feel safe and comfortable with Delta includes requiring civil behavior from everyone. The behavior we see in this video does not square with our training or culture and follow-up will continue so we can better ensure our employees will know they will be fully supported to make the right decisions when these issues arise." 

Emma Baum, the 21-year-old passenger who filmed the rant, told The Morning Call that she first noticed the man while waiting to board the flight.

She said he chanted Trump's campaign slogan several times while waiting in the terminal. 

Baum said before the man continued talking about the president-elect after boarding the flight. He also told Baum it was okay to film them after he stood up. 

In addition, Baum told The Morning Call that the man was initially taken off the plane, but later returned.
