Some 30,000 cars participated in the parade of vehicles in favor of the re-election of President Donald Trump that took place over the weekend in Miami, Florida.
On Saturday morning, Oct. 10, tens of thousands of Cubans, Venezuelans, and other conservative and patriotic Latinos participated in the Anti-Communist Caravan for Freedom and Democracy.
At the parade, which took place at the Magic City Casino, participants waved flags in support of President Trump and displayed posters rejecting socialism and communism.
The Miami Police Department estimated that 30,000 vehicles joined the parade, which also featured dozens of flags from Latino nations.
Parade organizer Orlando Gutierrez-Boronat told Breitbart that the event was unprecedented in size and diversity.
Gutiérrez-Boronat, who is co-founder of the Cuban Democratic Directorate, a nonprofit human rights organization, joined a coalition of Cuban, Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, Chilean, Uruguayan, and other groups to create a “patriotic committee” responsible for the event.
“This community is more united than ever,” Gutiérrez-Boronat said, describing the crowd at the event.
“It’s intergenerational because it spans different times of arrival (waves of migration) … it’s focused on anti-communism and anti-socialism,” he explained.
The organizer hailed the event as representative of the “organic unity of a plural community unified against communism, ‘que no le van a hacer cuentos’ [who won’t be fooled].”
Although the caravan was a nonpartisan event, many participants took the opportnity to promote President Trump’s re-election, waving flags in favor of the president, wearing the already iconic “Make America Great Again” cap, and dancing to the surprising salsa hit “Trump Song” by Los 3 de la Habana.
According to an analysis by Newsbusters, a media monitoring site, most Latino media largely ignored the event.
With 20 days to go before the election, President Trump and his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, are competing for the 29 electoral votes that Florida puts at stake and that, according to experts, could be decisive in defining the course of the election.
In 2016, Trump won the state and the Republicans maintained their performance two years later, when mid-term elections were held in the races for governor and senator with Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott winning, respectively.
According to a recent InsiderAdvantage poll, 46% of the Sunshine State electorate supports the Republican nomination, while Biden reaps 43%.
