Patriot Educates Americans With Build The Wall Tour

By Miguel Moreno

A float has been traveling the nation since the 2016 election, visiting 48 states: a herald of patriotism, support for the president, and the preservation of American culture. The driver is Robert Cortis, and he has now embarked on his Build The Wall Tour.

The United States is a land of law, so those who want to enter must enter legally, he said in an interview with The Epoch Times. Cortis is on tour to educate people about President Trump’s plan for the nation and the importance of the border wall.

Many people are misinformed or unaware of President Trump’s accomplishments, according to Cortis. His method of informing people about border security—besides the mammoth Trump Unity Bridge he hauls—is to speak about America’s achievements made during this presidential term. He then talks about the serious problems America faces today.

Up to 29 million illegal immigrants are currently living in the United States, according to researchers affiliated with Yale University, with a mean estimate of 22.1 million out of the range delivered by a mathematical model. Cortis said that he doesn’t like the idea of illegal immigrants using taxpayer money, reaping the rewards of Americans. To him, this was something worth fighting for.

Wherever Cortis goes, he tries to close the gaps between the left and the right. “If people talk about it—they communicate—things get better,” he said.

Building the Bridge of Unity

Before the bridge was a symbol for American unity, it was stored in Cortis’s restaurant and used as a unity bridge for people to get married on. During Trump’s presidential run, he was ordered by the city to remove the bridge from his property. That same day he heard the media saying that then-candidate Donald Trump would need to build bridges and unite with different groups in America to win the election.

“I said, ‘You know what? I’m on a mission from God now. I have this bridge—I’m gonna turn it into a Trump Unity Bridge,'” said Cortis. “I went to the salvage yard, found an axle and wheels, got some parts … got some people, and we started making the Trump Unity Bridge.”

The Trump Unity Bridge is a proud and loud message. President Trump’s name crowns the float, “BUILD THE WALL” is its battlement, and “MAKE AMERICA GREAT” underlines the free-floating bridge.

Flag Stolen in Manhattan

The tour does come with some challenges. As Cortis made his way through Manhattan on March 17, one of the Unity Bridge’s flags was stolen.

He said that a police officer saw the thief and bolted to catch him like a superhero. After the thief was caught, the officer asked Cortis what he wanted to do. Cortis chose to press charges.

“People shouldn’t desecrate the flag is the first and most important thing,” said Cortis. “And the second thing was that he stole my property, which nobody has the right to do.”

The Trumpmobile’s next stop is in Washington.
