Donald Trump’s rise to political power brought a number of unhinged people out of the woodwork. Some of these people were violent. A man named Cesar Seyoc sent bombs to people he perceived to be enemies of the president like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and even Robert DeNiro.
But there were also people who just wanted to spread the message of Trump. One of these people is Rob Cortis who created the Trump Unity Bridge. The art piece calls for people to come together. At the same time, there are divisive signs like “Build That Wall,” and “All Lives Matter.”
Cortis has faced controversy in the past. He was arrested last November with an outstanding warrant for disturbing the peace. His vehicle and the bridge were also impounded.

And on Wednesday, Cortis again found himself in trouble. According to MLive, “There were no major injuries in a three-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon that included an ambulance hauling a 30-foot ‘Trump Unity Bridge,’ according to Flint police. The crash occurred just after 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22 at the intersection of Dort Highway and Court Street.”
Cortis said of the incident, “At least everyone was safe and no one was seriously hurt.”
