The Associated Press reported that the Hudson Valley event was organized by Keith Lee, founder of MAGA Drag The Interstate. Supporters organized at the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Tarrytown and traveled in a caravan procession through Westchester County, The Bronx and Rockland County. The caravan made a stop at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park in The Bronx and brought traffic to a standstill in the northbound lanes of the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Tappan Zee Bridge entering Rockland County.

The protest drew protests from Democrats including state Sen. David Carlucci.

"What was seen in New York was aggressive, dangerous, and reckless behavior by some Trump supporters," he said. "Trump supporters are seen on social media, exiting their cars on the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge and causing danger to themselves and others in inclement weather and backing up Hudson Valley traffic. 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."

Others supported the move.
