Trump-supporting truckers have said they will refuse to take loads to and from New York City after the former president was fined $355 million in a civil fraud verdict.

In a video shared to X by a driver known as Chicago Ray, the trucker said that he had spoken to colleagues who all agreed they would start refusing loads to the city. 

According to Ray, those he had spoken to had already alerted their bosses that as of Monday, they would no longer conduct business in the Big Apple. 

In the video, he says: ‘I’ve been on the radio talking to drivers for the last hour, hour fifteen minutes. 

‘I’ve talked to at least ten drivers, they’re going to start refusing loads in New York City starting Monday.

‘I don’t know how far across the country this is, or how many truckers are going to start denying loads to New York City. 

‘I tell you what, you f*** around and find out. We are tired of you leftists f***ing with Trump. Motherf***ers are getting tired of this s**t.

‘Our bosses ain’t gonna care about these loads, we will just go somewhere else. Do you know how f***ing hard it is to get into New York City with one of these?

‘I don’t wish nothing on nobody, but what I am hearing, this is real. We will see, leave Trump the f**k alone with the bulls***. It’s election interference.

‘I hate to say it, but truckers are for Trump. Ain’t no motherf***ers are for Biden.’

Since sharing the video, others have chimed in on the alleged boycott saying they supported the move. 

One person posted: ‘Do it! Let us know how we can help! You’re NOT alone in this fight!’

Another added: ‘We can always rely on the trucker to restore some semblance of the right thing in response.

‘Thank you from the many here on X for your courage to stand up to the Marxist leftists.’On Friday, the former President and Republican presidential candidate was fined $355m in a civil fraud verdict

Judge Arthur Engoron released the ruling on Friday that will also see the 77-year-old banned from being a director in a New York firm for three years. 

Speaking outside his Mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, the 77-year-old went on the offense and lashed out at Engoron and Attorney General Letitia James.

The former President said: ‘I paid approximately $300 million dollars in taxes as the migrants come in and take over New York, and they want me out.

‘These are radical left democrats, they are lunatics. Its election interference.’

The former president also said that the case had been brought by the DOJ and Biden and constituted election interference.

Last month, a large MAGA truck convoy named the ‘Army of God’ was heading towards the southern border due to the ongoing crisis. 

They hoped the eye-catching, all-American protest will draw further attention to record numbers of migrants crossing the southern border and into the US, with multiple cities now buckling under the weight of trying to care for them.Last month, a massive convoy of truckers were seen making its way to migrant hotspots in a bid to shame the White House into tackling the worsening crisis

New York City is currently one of those cities struggling under the weight of the tens of thousands of migrants arriving at its borders in need of accommodation. 

In the last two years alone, the city had to deal with the arrival of over 170,000 migrants.

Mayor Eric Adams has said the cost of the migrant crisis in the Big Apple is an eye-watering $4.6 billion as he begs the state for more money

State governor Kathy Hochul pledged to commit $2.4 billion to the crisis last month, which is more than double last year’s proposal.

In court on Friday, five migrants were formally charged with assaulting two NYPD officers in Times Square last month.
