(TheRedWire.com) – Organizers of a US version of the Canadian Trucker “Freedom Convoy” hope to attract a special guest: former President Donald Trump. The “MAGA Convoy,” named after Trump’s famous “Make America Great Again” slogan, is slated to run from Los Angeles to Washington, DC, beginning on February 25.
Dion Cini, who organized Operation Flag Drop and Boaters for Trump, is the activist behind the MAGA Convoy. Cini told Newsweek he expects Trump and his sons will have plenty to say once the convoy gets rolling.
“Once we get a little bit of steam on this,” said Cini, “I’m sure President Trump, Junior, and Eric will all be speaking about what we’re trying to accomplish here.” Cini didn’t go so far as to promise any in-person appearances by the former First Family.
The rally is set to begin in Los Angeles from February 25 and work its way to Washington D.C. "with many stops in between," according to the organizers. https://t.co/E4es16E3B7

Trump is a vocal supporter of the Canadian Freedom rally. His new social media site, TruthSocial, offers Canadians a friendly place to gather with like-minded Americans interested in causes that further freedom and democracy. Trump released a statement, directly inviting the convoy to join him on the platform.
