It isn’t every day that you see the leader of the free world climb into the cab of a semi to give the air horn a honk. But today while meeting truckers and CEOs, President Trump sits in truck and honks horn.
Video posted to social media shows Trump climbing into the cab and honking the horn of one of the semi trucks parked on the South Lawn of the White House and pretending to drive away.
President Trump intends to make the country better aware of truck drivers’ challenges, such as health care, when he meets with industry executives at the White House Today on March 23.
American Trucking Associations President Chris Spear and several other trucking executives said:
“It is an honor to be invited to the White House and to meet with the president,” Spear said. “We look forward to telling our story — a story of how trucks move 70% of our nation’s freight safely and efficiently, touching every aspect of our economy, including our health care system. This is a tremendous opportunity for our members and drivers to talk about how the health care debate impacts them and their ability to move America’s goods.”
