Truckers outside White House used air horns to disrupt Trump press conference (with video)
Story by: Mario Pawlowski CEO at iTrucker
Hundreds of truckers started honking in protest during President Trump press conference.
They are protesting against low shipping rates and “price gouging” by the freight brokers, among other issues that are “killing” the trucking industry as we know it.
“Those are trackers that are with us all the way. They’re protesting in favor of President Trump, as opposed to against, and that’s a sign of love, not the sign of your typical protest, so I want to thank our great truckers. They like me, and I like them. We’re working on something together,” – President Trump said while truckers air horns could be heard in the background.
