Watch: Floridians mark Donald Trump’s birthday with flotillas, caravans

Trump supporters in Florida were celebrating the president’s birthday Sunday with caravans, flotillas, and parades throughout his adopted home state.

In Palm Beach County — home of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort — separate caravans of trucks, motorcycles, and boats were riding along highways and the intercoastal waterway at various times in the morning. The organizers were part of the president’s Florida re-election effort.

The Palm Beach Post reports that an anti-Trump caravan also was riding through the county Sunday to protest racism and call for police reforms.
