A group of truckers supporting former President Donald Trump has announced a boycott of deliveries to New York, expressing their dissatisfaction with a recent civil fraud judgment that fined Trump over $350 million. This decision follows the prohibition against Trump operating his business in New York for three years and his conviction for more than $350 million in damages in the civil fraud case brought against him, his family, and the Trump Organization by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

New York Judge Arthur Engoron issued his verdict last Friday after a several-month trial that began in October, stemming from the lawsuit filed by James, accusing the former president of inflating his assets and engaging in fraud. As a result, many pro-Trump truckers across the country have not taken the court’s decision lightly.

Chicago Ray, a trucker and ardent supporter of former President Trump, took the initiative to call for a boycott of deliveries to New York following the court’s decision, which fined Trump over $350 million in a civil fraud case. On the platform X, formerly known as Twitter, he expressed his solidarity with Trump, stating that “truckers for Trump” is not just a slogan but a tangible reality. Ray urged his fellow truckers to refuse loads destined for New York, stating that this action is a way to show their support for Trump and protest what they see as electoral interference. The reaction of truckers to this call for a boycott remains to be seen, but Chicago Ray’s initiative highlights the depth of support that some truckers continue to have for the former president, despite the legal controversies surrounding him.

Additionally, Elena Cardone, the wife of real estate investor Grant Cardone, created a GoFundMe page titled “Support Trump; Fund for the Unjust $355 Million Judgment.” She and other Trump supporters view the legal treatment he is facing as unprecedented and unfair, and see the legal battles he is facing as an attack on the ideals of fairness and due process.

The situation highlights the ongoing political and social tensions surrounding former President Trump and his supporters, as well as the potential implications for business and logistical operations in New York.
