A group of truckers who support former President Donald Trump are reportedly refusing to drive to New York City following the recent ruling requiring the former president to pay $355 million as part of a civil fraud case.

According to a report from the New York Post, a trucker who goes by the name Chicago Ray said that he and some of his colleagues will not be making deliveries to New York City following the Manhattan ruling. 

“I’ve been on the radio talking to drivers for about the past hour and I’ve talked to about ten drivers … and they’re going to start refusing loads to New York City starting on Monday,” Ray reportedly said in a video that has been deleted from the social media platform, X

“I don’t know how far across the country this is or how many truckers are going to start denying loads going to New York City, but I’ll tell you what — you f–k around and find out,” he continued. 

Trump shared Chicago Ray's video on his TRUTH Social platform. 

The civil fraud case against Trump was brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

James had alleged that Trump manipulated the value of his assets to secure favorable loan terms and lower insurance premiums. She had sought $370 million in penalties and an order barring Trump from serving as an officer in any New York corporation.

Judge Arthur Engoron ordered that Trump pay roughly $355 million and imposed $4 million fines on Trump's two eldest sons, Donald Jr. and Eric.
