MANHATTAN, N.Y. — Supporters of President Donald Trump packed Fifth Avenue in Manhattan Sunday morning, temporarily bringing traffic to a standstill.

Video and photos from Fifth Avenue and 57th Street show the president’s supporters honking horns, cheering and waving “Trump 2020” flags.

The caravan of vehicles stopped outside of Trump Tower, the president’s former residence, for about an hour. The group eventually cleared out and traffic began to move again around 9:45 a.m.

It’s unclear whether Trump Tower was the caravan’s only destination.

Trump has been hospitalized with COVID-19 since Friday. The president’s doctor has expressed cautious optimism but added that Trump was “not yet out of the woods.”
