Hundreds MAGA Boaters came out to support President Trump from  Naples to Marco Island

    From canoes to yachts, in support of President Donald Trump 's reelection, more than 500 boats decorated with U.S. and Trump 2020 flags navigated Collier County waters Saturday.
    After 10 am the boaters departed. From the Naples City Dock to the recording of the song "God Bless the USA" and of the national anthem. They then sailed into Naples Bay and further south to Marco Island's Jolley Bridge.


    About 530 boats took part in the parade, said Jamie Mosbach, a spokeswoman for the Collier County Sheriff's Office. From a boat filled with members of her family, Marco Island resident Doreen Oliverio said she wants Trump to win the general election in 2020.
    "We had no incidents," she declared.     
    Marco Island resident Doreen Oliverio said from a boat packed with members of her family that she wants to see Trump win the general election in 2020.
    "He is the greatest and can turn around our country," she said.
    Carl Oliverio, nephew of Doreen Oliverio, said he had come from Calabasas, California, to get away from the state 's restrictions on stay-at-home, which he called a "lockdown."
    He said Trump was unfair to the media.
    "He was duly elected and should be given a fair opportunity," said Carl Oliverio.
    Steve Loyd, the event's co-organizer, said the parade shows a majority of Americans are backing Trump.
    "The support I'm overwhelmed with," he said.   
    Marco resident Angie McGrath and her wife Caryn were in one of the boats as they pumped gas at the pier. She said the President is backed by members of the LGBT community.
    "Everyone is saying that the lesbians are not for Trump," she said. "We are here to prove that they are wrong."
    Rob Leyden, who lives in Naples, said he supports Trump because "he's cutting taxes."
    "I do not trust entitlement," he said.
    The parade turned out better than expected, said Kim Mitchell, president of the South Collier County Republican Club.
    "We want Republicans (elected) from whatever state you are from, a lot of them," she said.      
    In addition to the parade, the club held a country concert on Isles of Capri at Dolphin Stage, where attendees watched the boats in the tune of "Proud to be an American."

    Recently other boat parades were held in Florida in support of Trump. Trump on Twitter praised the attendees.
