After a Trump convoy harassed a Biden campaign bus in Texas on Friday, two Trump convoys blocked traffic on the Garden State Parkway and the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge (formerly the Tappan Zee Bridge) in New Jersey and New York on Sunday, the New York Post reports.

The pro-Trumpers exited their vehicles, honked their horns, waved Trump flags and “snarled traffic,” the Post reports.

A Twitter post by Yeshiva World News captured the scene on the Garden State Parkway.

“We shut it down, baby. We shut it down,” a man says repeatedly on the clip.

The Post reports there was a similar scene on the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge which spans the Hudson River.

Trump supporters can be seen standing on the bridge blocking traffic in a video from FNTV. A woman in the foreground holds two American flags, wears a pink Trump hat and a black shirt with the words “New York F—ing City” written on it.

The people chant “USA, USA, USA.”

The Post reports that New York State Sen. David Carlucci, who is a Democrat, criticized the actions of the convoys on Twitter.

“What was seen in New York was aggressive, dangerous, and reckless behavior by some Trump supporters,” Carlucci said.

“The New York State Police should be working to identify these individuals and charging them. We all have the right to show support for a presidential candidate, but we do not have the right to endanger others and break the law,” he said.
