Two caravans of supporters for President Donald Trump wreaked havoc on the Garden State Parkway and the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge on Sunday — creating traffic jams by stopping their cars and exiting the vehicles on the major motorways.
In New Jersey, the demonstrators in cars, SUVs and pickup trucks honked their horns and waved pro-Trump flags, according to video posted to Twitter by Yeshiva World News.
“Yeah — woo!” a man filming the video can be heard saying. “We shut it down, baby. We shut it down.”
The caravan was at a complete standstill, with some people standing atop their cars, the video shows.
A similar scene played out in New York on the bridge connecting Nyack and Tarrytown.
Video shot by FNTV shows Trump supporters either idling in their cars or standing on the bridge to chants of “USA, USA, USA.”
New York state Sen. David Carlucci, whose district covers Nyack, slammed the caravan and called on state police to charge those involved.
“What was seen in New York was aggressive, dangerous, and reckless behavior by some Trump supporters,” Carlucci said in a statement posted to Twitter.
“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,” he said.
