A Trump-supporting truck driver has advised New Yorkers to “stock up,” warning that plans to avoid driving their vehicles into the Big Apple are real.
In a video shared by a driver known as Chicago Ray, the trucker suggests New Yorkers plan ahead as truckers move forward with plans that will see them refuse to carry loads to and from New York City after the former president Trump fined $355 million in civil fraud verdict last week
“I’m in Wisconsin and I hear guys rejecting loads… this could take more than a week… my advice to New Yorkers is to start stocking up… there are millions of Trump truckers, millions of ‘Us.. “let’s leave Trump alone TF,” he posted in a message to X.
According to Ray, those he had spoken to had already alerted their bosses that starting Monday they would no longer do business in the Big Apple or make deliveries.
“I’ve been talking to some guys on the radio. This is a real man. There are guys who aren’t going to go,” Ray began.
In a video shared by a trucker known as Chicago Ray, he urges New Yorkers to prepare for a possible shortage and start stocking up.
According to Ray, truckers are serious about stopping doing business in the Big Apple.
Truckers say they are protesting following recent $355 million civil fraud fine imposed on former president
‘I talked to a guy who denied a refrigerator load to New York City. It’s pretty good money, so you gotta give that guy credit.
“If this lasts more than a week, New York better start stocking up and they better start stocking up now,” Ray continued.
‘I don’t wish anything on anyone. I’m just telling you what I hear. From what I hear, these guys are serious and this could take more than a week.
‘If they stop fucking with Trump. We are simply against what is happening in this country. We have races here. We are not trying to hurt anyone but we must defend something. We are with Trump. Stop the nonsense. It doesn’t have to be that way,” Ray said.
Trump has praised the group of truckers who plan to boycott New York as “great patriots.”
After sharing the DailyMail.com article about the planned boycott, Trump posted on Truth Social: “What an honor to have so many great patriots on the side of freedom!”
Trucker Jake also shared similar sentiments. ‘Those of you who have to work, do it yourself. But to those who are part of the boycott, God bless you. God bless President Trump. “God bless MAGA America and God bless all the truckers,” said trucker Jake.
And he added: ‘Joe Biden’s unjust and dangerous arming of law enforcement is a serious threat to democracy. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!’
Other truckers have also posted on social media supporting the boycott of the Big Apple.
‘Of course, all liberals have become experts in the trucking industry. Everyone knows logistics inside and out. They say we will all be replaced by AI. We have a deficit in this country of 85,000 truck drivers. Do you want to do AI? Bring it. We could use the help,” Trucker Jake posted in a video for X.
—Then you will say that the illegals will take your job. Actually? They can’t pass a background check, they can’t pass a drug test and then there’s the language barrier. What insurance company is going to hire someone who can’t pass a background check? So truckers, you’re safe.
‘Those of you who have to work, do it yourself. But to those who are part of the boycott, God bless you. God bless President Trump. “God bless MAGA America and God bless all truckers,” Trucker Jake said.
Since the videos were shared, others have weighed in on the alleged boycott saying they supported the measure.
One person posted: ‘Do it! Let us know how we can help! You are NOT alone in this fight!’
Another added: “We can always trust the trucker to restore something resembling correct in response.”
“Thank you from everyone here at X for your bravery in standing up to the Marxist leftists.”
On Friday, the former president and Republican presidential candidate was fined $355 million in a civil fraud verdict.
Judge Arthur Engoron issued the ruling Friday that will also bar Trump, 77, from being a director of a New York company for three years.
Speaking outside his Mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, Trump went on the offensive, lashing out at Engoron and Attorney General Letitia James.
The former President said: ‘I paid approximately $300 million in taxes when immigrants came and took over New York, and they wanted me out.
‘These are radical left democrats, they are crazy. His electoral interference.
The former president also said the case had been brought by the Justice Department and Biden and constituted election interference.
Last month, a large convoy of MAGA trucks called the ‘Army of God’ was heading towards the southern border due to the current crisis.
They hoped the flashy, all-American protest would draw more attention to the record number of migrants crossing the southern border into the U.S., with multiple cities now buckling under the weight of trying to care for them.
Last month, a massive convoy of truckers was seen heading to migrant hotspots in an attempt to shame the White House into addressing the worsening crisis.
New York City is currently one of those cities struggling under the weight of tens of thousands of immigrants arriving at its borders in search of shelter.
In the last two years alone, the city had to deal with the arrival of more than 170,000 immigrants.
Mayor Eric Adams has said the cost of the immigration crisis in the Big Apple is $4.6 billion as he pleads with the state for more money.
The state’s governor, Kathy Hochul, pledged $2.4 billion to the crisis last month, more than double last year’s proposal.
In court on Friday, five immigrants were formally charged with assaulting two NYPD officers in Times Square last month.
