Truckers supporting Trump to boycott goods transport to NYC following fraud ruling

by | Feb 19, 2024

To express their displeasure with the civil fraud ruling that fined President Trump more than $350 million last week, a group of truck drivers who support him have announced they won’t be traveling to New York City.

All of this is a result of Letitia James ‘civil fraud case against Trump, his family, and the Trump Organization, which resulted in Trump being barred from conducting business in New York for three years and being found to be responsible for damages totaling more than$ 350 million.

After a months-long trial that started in October and involved James ‘lawsuit, in which the president was charged with inflating his assets and engaging in fraud, New York Judge Arthur Engoron issued his decision on Friday.

As a result, many pro-Trump truck drivers across the nation have taken the decision seriously.

A trucker by the name of “Chicago Ray” wrote on X, formerly Twitter, “I'm just one of the many millions of Truckers who believe in God and love this Country.” “Trump stands with me, so I stand with him.” Trump supporters are real, not just a catchphrase, he wrote.

When the verdict was issued on February 16, Chicago Ray went to X to urge fellow truckers to stop transporting goods to New York City.

Ray wrote that he had been talking to drivers on the radio for about an hour and had spoken to about ten drivers. “I don’t know how far across the country this is or how many truckers will start denying loads going to New York City, but I'll tell you what, you f— around and find out,” he said.

Trump should be left alone, the truck driver continued to warn, adding that the fraud investigation in New York City against him amounted to “election interference. “

Grant Cardone, a wealthy real estate investor’s wife, Elena, founded the GoFundMe page “Stand with Trump, Fund the $355M Unjust Judgment.” “100% of funds will be forwarded to the Trump organization for his defense of this ridiculous judgment,” her husband stated on X.

Cardone wrote that in response to what she perceivd to be unprecedented and unfair treatment by some judicial elements in New York, “I stand unwaveringly with President Donald Trump.”

He continued that the recent legal battles Trump is facing are an assault on the very principles of fairness and due process that every American deserves.

The fundraiser has already brought in close to $310,000 since its inception.
