BREAKING: Truckers Could "Shut Down NYC" With Boycott

After flexing their muscles against Covid lockdowns, truckers across the country are beginning to boycott deliveries to New York City in response to a whopping $350 million civil judgment against former President Donald Trump.

The legions of Trump-adoring long-haul drivers began speaking up after state Judge Arthur Engoron handed down a shocking decision alleging the Trump brand inflated the value of its assets to unfairly leverage lucrative business deals. The family's real estate empire, valued around $1.5 billion, would be decimated if forced to pay the full amount.

"I'm just one of the many millions of Truckers who believe in God and love this Country," a trucker known as "Chicago Ray" wrote on X, formerly Twitter. "I stand with Trump bc Trump stands with me. Truckers for Trump ain't just a slogan, it's real," he wrote.

"I’ve been on the radio talking to drivers for about the past hour, and I’ve talked to about 10 drivers," Ray wrote. "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--- around and find out," he said.

"A trucker boycott could shut down New York City," said another trucker.

On TikTok, the account "survivaljunkie2" told followers he just got a call from dispatch that shipments to their New York location were being halted as of Monday morning.

"I just received a call from a company I was getting a load from, and they said they don't have any loads going to New York," he said. "So if you in New York, you won't be receiving anything from these drivers."

"Get yourself prepared, New York. S--- may hit the fan in the next couple days."

The term "Boycott NYC" was trending on X Sunday night as more than 13,000 posts flooded in about the anticipated shutdown.

“We’re tired of you f***ing leftists f***ing with Trump,” he continued, while wearing a Trump-branded cap. “Our bosses ain’t going to care if we deny the loads. We’ll just go somewhere else, alright? You know how f***ing hard it is to get into New York City in one of these [vehicles]?”

The civil trial against President Trump, which he regularly attended, was cast by the Republican leader as a "witch hunt"by a Democratic state attorney general and a judge who he frequently used as a foil on the campaign trail. Supporters of the president would highlight Engoron's smirking in court and uncovered his habit of posting unflattering shirtless gym selfies.

Elena Cardone, the wife of billionaire real estate investor Grant Cardone, launched a GoFundMe account seeking to raise $355 million to cover Trump's penalty. Her husband, speaking about the "Stand with Trump; Fund the $355M Unjust Judgment" account on X, wrote that "100% of funds will be forwarded to the Trump organization for his defense of this ridiculous judgment."

"I stand unwaveringly with President Donald Trump in the face of what I see as unprecedented and unfair treatment by certain judicial elements in New York," he added. "The recent legal battles he faces are not just an attack on him, but an attack on the very ideals of fairness and due process that every American deserves"
