Trump Celebrates Memorial Day at Huge Biker Rally

Updated on

Days after clinching enough delegates for the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump stopped by a biker rally marking the Memorial Day weekend in an appearance aimed at channeling his anti-Washington appeal.

“He speaks his mind. We bikers are about freedom -- we’re all best friends when we ride together, even if we don’t know each other. And we all just feel like he’s one of us,” said Jeff Memges, 51, from Woodbridge, Virginia. He said that Trump’s appeal among the biker community runs deep because “there’s no support among us for the Washington establishment.”
