Drew Angerer/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump posted a tweet railing against the “very rude” protesters who have been flooding Capitol Hill ahead of the expected cloture vote to end debate on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.

“The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers,” Trump wrote in a tweet, referencing unsubstantiated claims that Democratic donor George Soros is involved.

Trump’s tweet came after Capitol Police arrested 302 people for unlawfully demonstrating in the Senate office buildings on Thursday.

The names of the protesters have not been confirmed by police “due to the large number being processed,” but some famous faces in the crowd have identified themselves.

Comedienne Amy Schumer and model Emily Ratajkowski posted on their Instagram accounts about how they were arrested while protesting.
