Bikers Rally for Trump in Charlotte: 'He's Accomplished Incredible Things'
‘We’re Starting to Get Louder’
Bikers rallied to show their support for President Donald Trump and police in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Tom Speciale, a Vets for Trump member, told the Charlotte Observer:
“Donald Trump ran a campaign for president (in 2016) like no one has ever seen before."
"He was really a true political outsider," he said.
“He had universal name recognition, and he had a message of ‘Make America Great Again,’ not this left-wing radical stuff,” he continued.
Speciale added that he believed Trump would win again in November.
Bikers gathered for the event at Charlotte’s Park Road Park, including Latinos for Freedom, and the Charlotte Regional Republican Volunteer Network.
“The event was billed as a pro-Trump biker rally to be followed by a ‘back the blue’ parade," the Observer reported.
"About 45 bikers took part in a flag-waving parade through Charlotte in the early evening, then were to reconvene for dinner to watch Trump accept his nomination."
Republican Volunteer Network Founder Sean Kilbane said Trump voters were mostly a silent majority but said their voices needed to be heard, Fox 46 rpeorted.
“As we are drawing closer to the actual election, we’re starting to get louder and show our support more vocally for the president in a more visual way,” he explained.
One rally attendee expressed excitement for casting her ballot for the president in November.
“I think he’s done and awesome job and we’re just here to show him that we so support him through everything he’s been through, he still has supporters here,” she said.
Attendees flew American flags and Trump flags from their motorcycles and cars during the rally.
Participant Thomas Mussoni said it was good to be with people who felt the same way about Trump.
“It’s great to be among like-minded people."
"We’re not gonna debate issues of gun control, or of all lives matter," he added.
"We’re here to say, look, we support our president,” Mussoni commented.
“We think he’s accomplished incredible things during his first term and we can’t wait to see what he can get done in the second,” he said.
