Thanks to the coronavirus putting a hamper on the way in which Americans are able or allowed to gather, the 2020 election has been an extremely unique contest.
There are still some large rallies occurring, mostly on the Donald Trump side of things, but even those raucous events are being held in unusual locales, as local officials around the nation enact ordinances aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 by disallowing gatherings.
Trump’s supporters are not the sort of Americans who take “no” for an answer very often, however, and they’ve devised a novel plan to show the nation who they’re backing on Tuesday.
In Texas, the Association of Lamar County Republicans President Robert Black recently announced a second Texas-Oklahoma Trump Parade that will also take place this weekend, according to the Paris News:
Saturday’s parade will be much like the first, with participants lining up in Hugo and in Paris, with the Hugo group traveling south on Highway 271 and the Paris group heading north. Line up in Paris will be at 7 a.m. at the Lamar County Fairgrounds, 570 E. Center St., and in Hugo at the Agriplex at the corner of 5th and Rena streets. The parade will begin at 9 a.m. sharp.
And there are plenty more as well.
In Dalton, Georgia, Whitfield County Republican Party Chairman Dianne Putnam told the Daily Citizen-News she expects to see lots of people come out for a Trump Train parade on Sunday afternoon.
“Anyone who wants to come out and show their support for President Trump is welcome,” she commented.
The train is scheduled to start around 2:30 p.m. outside GOP headquarters located at 515 Benjamin Way, the Citizen-News article read.
Many of these groups were organizing via Twitter, following accounts related to “MAGA Drag the Interstate”.
