NYACK – Caravans of Trump supporters traveled across the region on Sunday as many vehicles had flags supporting the president’s reelection while others had red, white, and blue American flags and others had shades of blue.

At one point on Sunday, a large caravan stopped in the middle of the Mario Cuomo Tappan Zee Bridge linking Rockland and Westchester shutting down lanes on the bridge as participants got out of their vehicles, waiving Trump flags.

That impromptu bridge rally was “aggressive, dangerous, and reckless behavior by some Trump supporters,” said State Senator David Carlucci (D, Nanuet).

“Trump supporters are seen on exiting their cars on the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and causing danger to themselves and others in inclement weather and backing up Hudson Valley traffic,” the senator said. “The New York State Police should be working to identify these individuals and charging them. We all have the right to show support for a presidential candidate, but we do not have the right to endanger others and break the law.”
