President Trump praised the nation’s truckers from the White House lawn Thursday; saying their vital industry is saving the lives of millions of Americans throughout the country during the virus pandemic.
“At a time of widespread shutdowns, truckers form the lifeblood of our economy. For weeks on end, truckers leave their homes and deliver supplies Americans need and rely on,” said the President. “In the war against the virus, American truckers are the foot soldiers carrying us to victory.”
“It’s been really great. And we want to thank you. For every trucker listening, I speak for the 330 million Americans who say thank God for truckers,” he added.
