Following the fallout from former President Donald Trump’s civil fraud case, rumors swirled on social media urging truckers to boycott shipments to New York City. However, recent developments suggest that the proposed boycott may not be as widespread as initially thought.

Truckers, including prominent figures like Chicago Ray, who initially advocated for the boycott, have now distanced themselves from the movement. In a statement, Ray clarified that he was not leading any movement and merely shared information he came across online. Other truckers echoed similar sentiments, stating that they had not been approached about participating in any boycott.

Instead, some drivers pointed to longstanding issues such as parking, crime, and traffic congestion in NYC as reasons why they may choose to avoid the city. Additionally, concerns over legal issues and toll payments within the city further contribute to truckers’ reluctance to make deliveries there.

While Trump himself shared a video endorsing the boycott, its traction appears to have waned amidst conflicting statements from key figures like Chicago Ray. Despite deleting his initial video, Ray maintains that he personally chooses not to make shipments to NYC but emphasizes that each driver should make decisions based on their own circumstances.

In summary, while there was initial buzz surrounding a potential truckers’ boycott in protest of Trump’s legal troubles, the reality on the ground seems more nuanced, with many drivers opting out or citing unrelated issues as reasons for avoiding NYC deliveries.
