A FAN of the president has been accused of voter intimidation after they were seen threatening someone and telling them they had “no choice” but to vote for Donald Trump.
Ajay Rochester, host of The Biggest Loser in Australia, posted a video to TikTok over the weekend of the incident that unfolded at a Trump rally in Beverly Hills, California.
The video shows a man looking at Rochester through her car window, shouting that “we got you now.”
“Your mother voted for Trump, your mother loves Trump, I asked her,” the unidentified man says.
The man – holding Trump flags and what appears to be a sword or long blade – goes on to tell Rochester, “We’ve got your plates – we’ve got you.”
He then goes to the front of her car and appears to take pictures of her license plates.
“We got your plates, baby,” he says. “We know who you are now. You’re gonna vote for Trump whether you like it or not.”
“You got no choice! You cannot resist Trump we got you. We f**king got you.”
Someone in the background appears to ask “what’s her problem?” – to which the man again states that “we got her plates.”
Rochester has been posting videos about what happened since Saturday, and has been seeking the public’s help in identifying the man.
She claimed in another video that she reported the “voter intimidation” to the Beverly Hills Police Department.
The department, which did not immediately respond to The Sun’s request for comment, "didn't really seem to care too much about it,” Rochester alleged.
Rochester claimed those rallying for Trump in Beverly Hills last weekend don’t live in the area and said she saw them “come in on buses.”
She said she was stuck in traffic on Santa Monica Boulevard and couldn’t help but be near the Trump supporters.
Rochester said the rally of “voter intimidators” was right across the street, 250-300 feet, from a polling location.
“I did nothing to incite them, I was literally driving along and at first it was kind of like, ‘Ah, rapid Trumpies,’” Rochester said.
She said it got “crazier and crazier” and then the man she filmed started “saying all sorts of things.”
“I didn’t say anything ‘cause I was way too scared and there was a red light and I couldn’t do anything,” Rochester said.
In another clip, Rochester said she’s “locking her doors at night” and hopes the man “doesn’t do the things he says he’s doing.”
She said that on Saturday, she was wearing her “Cuomosexual shirt” – likely referencing Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – “which might have had something to do with it.”
On Wednesday, Rochester said she has reported the incident to the FBI.
Beverly Hills police recently announced that the famous Rodeo Drive will be closed on Election Day next week because of possible unrest.
A poll from YouGov released earlier this month found that 56 percent of voters expected an increase in violence after November 3.
Americans are worried about the election – an anxiety many people haven’t felt during years of largely peaceful displays of democracy.
But Trump has refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power and called for an army of “poll watchers” to monitor the vote.
That’s part of what fuels concern that this year could be different – and elections officials and voting advocates are on high alert.
