Truckers explain why they’re boycotting New York and standing with Donald Trump

New York has charged former president Donald Trump $355 million for allegedly inflating the value of his properties in order to defraud banks — despite zero evidence of any banks losing money.

Now, truckers across the country have decided to protest the ruling by boycotting New York City and even New York state.

One trucker tells Glenn Beck that he recently delivered eight times to the five boroughs but has already told his dispatch, “Under no circumstances will I be crossing that bridge again.”

“I won’t go into New York state, much less the city,” he adds.

“What was your dispatch’s reaction to that? Did you get any heat?” Glenn Beck asks in awe.

Rather than giving heat, the dispatch responded with, “Oh, another one.”

“It seems like about between 20% and 25% of our drivers have refused to take any loads into New York state anymore,” he tells Glenn.

One trucker who owns his own truck and trailer is also refusing to go into New York City.

“It pays well, but I’m not going to do that anymore,” he says. “If a bunch of independent truck drivers start doing this, New York City will feel a pinch real quick.”

He believes that “it won’t really hurt the trucking industry,” because “there’s such a demand for drivers, experienced drivers, who are independent.”

While he says that it won’t hurt truckers, it “will hurt New York City.”

“I’m interested to see how this works out,” Glenn says. “This is a group of people that can make a huge difference.”
