NYC Truckers Boycott Over Trump’s $355M Fraud Ruling

Truckers aligned with Trump are announcing their decision not to transport goods to New York City following the recent $355 million judgment against the former president in his fraud case.

Chicago Ray, a conservative social media figure and trucker, shared a video expressing that some of his fellow drivers intend to cease deliveries to New York City as a form of protest against the ruling handed down in the Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday.

“I’ve been on the radio talking to drivers for about the past hour and I’ve talked to about ten drivers … and they’re going to start refusing loads to New York City starting on Monday,” Ray said in the video from inside his truck.

He mentioned that he has already had conversations with several drivers in his network who informed their employers that they will not be driving to New York City.

“I don’t know how far across the country this is or how many truckers are going to start denying loads going to New York City, but I’ll tell you what — you f–k around and find out,” Ray said.

The trucker said their bosses “ain’t gonna care if we deny the loads — we’ll just go somewhere else.”

“Do you know how f—king hard it is to get into New York City with one of these motherf—ckers?” he said, referring to his truck. “Man, f—k that. “

Ray asserted that a staggering 95% of truckers stand behind the former president in the X post, which has garnered over 4.6 million views and received more than 50,000 likes since Friday night.

Some voiced their support for the boycott online.

“Do it! Let us know how we can help! You’re NOT alone in this fight!” one user wrote in response.

“We stand with the truckers,” wrote another.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron has ordered Trump to pay a $355 million fine for inflating his net worth by billions over a decade to secure favorable loans from banks. The judge has also barred him from holding any officer or director positions in New York companies for three years.

Trump, echoing sentiments from Chicago Ray, has criticized the case as “election interference” by his political adversaries. He also anticipates further consequences for New York City, stating at a rally on Saturday that other businesses will follow suit and leave the city after his ruling.
