The President of the United States took to Twitter to thank America’s truckers for their hard work in delivering goods and keeping the nation’s economy running during the COVID-19/Coronavirus crisis.
On March 18, the American Trucking Associations (ATA) tweeted:
America’s truckers are on the front lines of our nation’s response to the #COVID19 pandemic. Thank you @realdonaldtrump for highlighting their heroic and vital efforts, delivering food, water, fuel, medicine, medical supplies and other essentials across the USA.
On March 19, President Trump retweeted the ATA from his official account, writing “THANK YOU” and using the hashtag #ThankATrucker.
