A Democratic National Committee official expressed his support Friday for the protesters who physically blocked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a Washington D.C. school.

The protesters stood in front of DeVos’ path and blocked her from entering Jefferson Middle School Academy. She was forced to turn around and go through a different entrance. The protest was reportedly organized by the Washington Teacher’s Union.

Zac Petkanas, a DNC senior adviser and the director of the party’s “Trump war room,” retweeted an article about the protesters and wrote, “#resist.” He also tweeted, “We must protect our public schools from this woman.”

The DNC did not immediately respond to an inquiry about whether they support these sorts of protests.
