MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says he is demonstrating his support from the 'Freedom Convoy' truckers in Canada by sending them – what else – pillows.

Over the weekend, Lindell told the Right Side Broadcasting Network that "all of our employees are busy making pillows right now for the truckers in Canada. We’re going to try and get them through. I’m not going to say what day or, you know, there will be obstructionists."

He encouraged the truckers, opposed to government COVID-19 mandates, to keep up their fight and not to "compromise halfway."

Truckers who had been demonstrating on the Ambassador Bridge, which connects Canada and Detroit, were cleared over the weekend, while the size of protest grew in the downtown of Ottawa, Canada's capital city.

The convoy has been camped out in the downtown since late last month. The demonstration has, to some degree, obstructed supply chain issues in both the U.S. and Canada.

Lindell is one of several high-profile conservatives or Republican lawmakers who has voiced support for the protest.

He joins a list that includes Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, and former President Trump.

Canadian politicians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, have asked U.S. lawmakers to refrain from weighing in on the issue.

On Friday, Trudeau placed some of the blame for the protests on the shoulders of Americans, whom he said were "flooding" the 911 lines in Ottawa and otherwise influencing the demonstration effort.
