100s of Boaters in Florida Throw Massive Parade in Support of Trump
Parade was bound for Mar-a-Lago over the weekend
Hundreds of boaters in Florida took part in a huge parade in support of President Donald Trump on Sunday, according to reports.
The parade was bound for Mar-a-Lago over the weekend, which began at the Jupiter Inlet.
A local NBC station reported the parade ended several hours later at the president’s resort in Palm Beach.
A Facebook page dubbed it the “TRUMP Boat Parade" was also set up.
It asked boaters participating to fly their “favorite TRUMP flag and USA Flag.”
The event page said:
"Don't miss this event it's going to be ‘HUGE.’ Lets honor President Trump for all he is doing to ‘Keep America Great.'"
As bizpacreview reported:
Jupiter boat owner, Carlos Gavidia, was deemed to be making waves by his community management for showing support for the president by flying a Trump flag at the end of his dock.
Told he could display the flag, an undaunted Gavidia went one better — he wrapped his entire boat in a customized Trump paint scheme. And in response, the president offered his thanks, tweeting:
“Very cool. Please thank him!”

Broward and Palm Beach counties, which have been hit the hardest, most of Florida will reopen on Monday, May 4.
Restaurants will be allowed to open at 25 percent capacity, with outside seating areas restricted by established social distancing guidelines of tables being 6 feet apart and no parties of more than ten people.
The President later thanked the boaters in a tweet on Sunday, vowing to “never let” them down.
Thank you very much to our beautiful “boaters.” I will never let you down! pic.twitter.com/Ot5Ffnjj9G— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 3, 2020
The tweet also featured a video of the parade which showed boaters in pro-Trump gear, as an instrumental of “The Star-Spangled Banner” blared in the background.
