JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Supporters of President Trump gathered along the Intracoastal Waterway on Saturday for a “Trump 2020 Boat Rally."
The procession started at the Little Jetties and cruised south to Ponte Vedra.
“It’s a great event, because it demonstrates the First Amendment of the constitution, or a political activist can go out in public and say what they have to say and how they feel and who they can support, whether it be Republican or Democrat,” said Ray Shaw, a Navy veteran.
“With everything going on, we wanted to show support for @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and our country. The atmosphere was unbelievably great and extremely patriotic. It’s comforting to be able to see so many strangers come together for a cause.” #Trump2020 Boat Rally participant. pic.twitter.com/47woojkz53— Zachery Lashway (@ZachLashway) May 16, 2020
On Sunday, President Donald Trump tweeted his thanks to the boaters.
Last week, there was a boat parade in South Florida for President Trump near his Mar-a-Lago resort. News4Jax’s partner Click Orlando shared this video from the event:
