I met at Ward’s Corner Frisch’s. The parking lot was packed, someone said prayer and Pledge of Allegiance; then got into their vehicles that were decorated with the American Flag and Trump Flags, signs etc. etc. . . Very cool looking. People were meeting all over the Greater Cincinnati area like this!
(Editor’s note: It is a scene that repeated itself at locations all around the I-275 loop on Saturday as a multitude of vehicles and people joined the “Trump Train”.)
I got on east bound 275 with everyone and two lanes like that with Trump Backers all the way to the Ohio River. I got off at Kellogg and turned around and same thing on both sides of 275!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone, honking and waving at each other. When you passed a police officer in cruiser along the way, people would cheer and honk and wave!!
I got off in Tri-County and turned around again. I have no doubt it went into Indiana. We are talking 1000s of motorcycles decorated, cars of all types, sport cars, BMW, Antiques and just your regular Chevy pick-up, like mine, decorated! Not to mention the Semis I saw and RV’s all jazzed up.
This was so positive!! Think about it: No FIRES STARTED, NO ONE BEING ASSAULTED OR KILLED, NO ONE STEALING AND LOOTING ANYONE ELSE. From Prayers, to shaking hands, to the AMERICAN FLAG!!

Additional note: There were reports estimating the number of participants at 9,000 people – not 9,000 vehicles, but people in vehicles, lining the sides of I-275, waving from overpasses, or wherever people could find a spot to view the spectacle or add their support to the mass display of support for President Donald Trump, America, and Police and Firefighters.
Thank you to Jim Replogle – retired police officer, for providing his personal account of the Trump Train he participated in on Saturday, September 12, 2020 on I-275 circling the Greater Cincinnati Area. Additional thanks to Jim for providing photographs of the event.
