Over 1,000 boats could be seen on the Mississippi Gulf Coast last weekend showing their support for the re-election of Donald Trump for President.
The Biloxi event is the third Boat Parade since the inception of the Mississippi Boaters for Trump Facebook group in June 2020. The group now has over 10,000 members and is growing.
The most recent event caught the attention of White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications and Director of Social Media Dan Scavino. He tweeted a video from the Mississippi Coast boat parade early this morning.

Facebook group administrator Lisa May told WXXV25 that the silent majority was coming together in a peacefully way to support the President.
“I think right now with everything going on in our country, this is a way that we are able to peacefully get together and just show our support, fight for our country, fight for our president,” May said. “You know, this is a hard day and time and this is the way that we choose to do it. Silent majority coming together. Huge group. One thing I’d want to add is how much we do love our group members. If you just look around, you can see how the Mississippi Boaters for Trump they always show up and show out.”
