Hundreds of Trump supporters flooded the streets of New York City on Sunday, briefly blocking traffic along Manhattan's 5th Avenue outside Trump Tower in a demonstration of support for the president's ongoing recovery from COVID-19.

A caravan of more than 100 vehicles shut down the street for more than 30 minutes as people honked their horns and shouted "Four more years!" in support of Trump.

The group also held a moment of prayer for the president.

"This is a serious situation: the leader of the free world is sick," said one organizer to the crowd. "The leader of the free world needs our support."

There were no arrests made for blocking traffic, and onlookers reported that there was no evidence of violence or harassment.

"Today, the energy was electric. It was amazing. No chaos, no [middle] fingers, no drama, just supporting our president and our [men and women in] blue," said one woman who attended the event.

🔦 Doctors have said that the president is recovering well and is expected to be released from Walter Reed Hospital soon. On Sunday evening, the president also made a surprise drive-by visit to the supporters gathered outside the hospital.
