Truckers boycott NYC after court rules against Trump

Following New York Judge Arthur Engoron’s decision to fine former President Donald Trump over $350 million in a civil fraud case last Friday, truck drivers have started a boycott of New York City in support of the former president.

According to Fox News, truck drivers from across the country have already announced that they will not transport goods to New York City due to the $350 million ruling against Trump last Friday.

In a post on social media, one Trump-supporting trucker, known as “Chicago Ray,” said, “I’m just one of the many millions of Truckers who believe in God and love this Country. I stand with Trump bc Trump stands with me. Truckers for Trump ain’t just a slogan, it’s real.”

Will the Truckers’ Strike Change the Outcome?

The Post & Email 2/19/2024

YouTube channel “Route Rethinker” is providing information and updates on a truckers’ strike which apparently began Sunday night at the suggestion of several truckers expressing extreme displeasure at the judgment rendered Friday by New York-based Judge Arthur Engoron against 45th President Donald J. Trump, who is also the leading Republican 2024 presidential primary candidate.

Engoron, who presided after New York Attorney General Letitia James accused Trump and the Trump Organization of inflating property values to obtain more favorable business loans, additionally barred Trump from serving as an executive of any New York-based company for three years; for sons Eric and Don Jr., the same applies for two years.

No such civil penalty has ever been handed down in the history of the nation, let alone the state of New York.

Trump’s legal team has promised to appeal the ruling, which requires the company to post a bond equal to the amount of the penalty.

“For now, the former president can’t appeal the decision just quite yet because the clerk’s office at Engoron’s courthouse still has to file paperwork to make it official,” Fox Business reported Monday.
