Senator says he and his wife were attacked after leaving the White House after Trump’s speech

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said he was “attacked by an angry mob” on Friday night as he walked with his wife from the White House after President Donald Trump’s final speech at the Republican National Convention.

“I was just attacked by an angry mob of more than 100 people a block from the White House,” Paul wrote on Twitter, thanking the Metropolitan Police for saving from the “distraught crowd.”
