New York City became Trump Country on Sunday as a massive parade of supporters took over Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue.
Most of the members of the caravan drove in from Long Island, and they stopped traffic when they parked in front of Trump Tower to make a joyful noise they hoped would carry to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where President Donald Trump was confined after testing positive for the coronavirus Friday, according to the New York Post.
There were more than 100 vehicles in the assemblage, including cars, trucks and motorcycles.
About the only thing that stopped that chants of “Four more years!” was a call for a moment of prayer.
“This is a serious situation — the leader of the free world is sick. The leader of the free world needs our support,” an organizer said over a loudspeaker, calling upon the Trump supporters gathered to “send some good energy to President Trump.”
The silence ended with the leader calling out, “President Trump, we love you!” Fifth Avenue then rocked to the cheers of “USA! USA!”

“I felt the love and energy today,” she said. “Today the energy was electric. It was amazing — no chaos, no [middle] fingers, no drama, just supporting our president and our [men and women in] blue.”
Hahnan said going to Trump Tower was “sentimental” because “we were praying for him.”
The New York City rally was matched by others around the country, including one outside of Walter Reed that took shape Friday and has remained there. Trump, in an SUV, drove past the Walter Reed supporters Sunday evening, waving from the back of an SUV.
