Pro-Trump Caravan Drives Through Park City

A caravan of dozens of cars flying flags in support of President Trump drove through Park City on Saturday afternoon.

The caravan began driving up Main Street just before 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon with dozens of cars sporting American flags and others emblazoned with ‘Trump 2020’ messages or images in support of the President.

One flag had an image of the President standing atop a tank holding an American flag, another was of him Photoshopped as George Washington crossing the Delaware.

A few cars had megaphones and were broadcasting messages alleging voter fraud and a stolen election by the President’s Democratic challenger Joe Biden in last month’s general election.

Biden is the President-Elect and the formal transition process from a Trump administration to a Biden one began on November 23rd.

The President has yet to concede the election, however, and allegations of voter fraud have been pushed by the President and his supporters over the last month. 

No state has taken the claims seriously, though, with courts repeatedly ruling the campaign’s cases lack credible evidence.

Park City Police were on scene but the demonstration was a peaceful one with horn honking, curious onlookers taking pictures, and a few shouts from the sidewalk both for and against the caravan the only real reactions.

Parkite Max, who only gave his first name, said the timing of the protest felt a little late to him.

“The timing seems a little odd,” said Max. “You would think it would be before people had the chance to vote and think things through. It seems a little belated.” 

Supporters of the caravan I tried to talk to declined to be interviewed.

Max did say that although he was not a fan of the caravan, he understands the divide among many Americans at the moment and supports their right to protest. 

“While I’m on the other side, you know, I respect their rights to drive around,” he said. “Flag sales are definitely up so I guess it’s good if you’re in the flag manufacturing industry.”
