Supporters of Donald Trump gather for the Florida Memorial Day boat parade.
Former President Donald Trump's supporters flooded the waters off Jupiter, Fla., Monday for a Memorial Day boat parade.
Legions of Trump supporters were photographed sunning themselves on the decks of their vessels, which were festooned with flags reading "Trump Is My President," "Trump Won," "This Area Is a Liberal-Free Zone," and, of course, "Trump 2024."
Pro-Trump boat parades were a common sight during the 2020 presidential campaign and show no sign of waning in size or intensity of support as the 45th president considers a 2024 presidential bid.
In a statement released Monday afternoon, Trump paid tribute to his supporters.
"Wow!" According to what I've heard, they have thousands and thousands of boats parading through Jupiter, despite their attempt to cancel us,” he wrote. “Everyone is having the time of their lives. On this day, we would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has served and fought for our great country. I adore each of you!
Stone was convicted of obstruction of justice, making false statements to Congress, and witness tampering in November 2019 in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference in 2016. He was sentenced to 40 months in prison, but Trump commuted it in July 2020.
Earlier Monday, Trump issued a statement honoring "the fallen heroes who gave their final breath in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred liberties."
“We owe everything we are and hope to be to these unmatched heroes,” he added. “Their memory and legacy are eternal. Our commitment to them and their families is eternal and irrevocable.”
Trump announced earlier this month that he would hold campaign-style rallies in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio, Georgia, and North Carolina beginning in June, indicating that he may be scouting the field for another presidential campaign.
