The People’s Convoy, an American offshoot of Canada’s Freedom Convoy, reportedly intends to send some of its truckers to the White House on Saturday.
The convoy is expected to arrive in Washington, DC, as part of its nationwide protest against the vaccine and other COVID-19 mandates. According to NBC News, an organizer told supporters that some of the trucks involved in the protest would be heading for the White House.
“I can tell you now that there will be select trucks going to the White House,” organizer Dan Fitzgerald said during a Friday live stream.
The number of protesters is unknown, but NBC News estimated that “several dozen tractor-trailer trucks and hundreds of cars” joined the convoy.
This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
