The March for Trump Bus Tour and Caravan to Freedom, which will be in Des Moines on Dec. 6, is kicking off Sunday, Nov. 29 in Doral, Fla. It will wrap up Dec. 12 at the Mega MAGA Rally in Washington D.C.

“There are two real components of this,” said Dustin Stockton of Tyrant’s Curse and one of the lead organizers of the tour. “The primary objective of the bus tour is to generate momentum for the Mega MAGA Rally in D.C. on Dec. 12. Our goal is to overwhelm D.C. with millions of patriots who are standing up to stop the steal.”

The tour also wants to make each stop a unique experience. Sunday’s stop in Doral will feature UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal. Stockton said the group plans to have a variety of local, prominent Trump supporters and politicians at stops along the way.

“It’s going to be patriotic, it’s going to be mission-oriented and it’s going to be fun and entertaining,” he said. “We really strive to work in the spirit of Andrew Breitbart and be happy warriors.”

Sunday’s event is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring their Trump flags and gear to “join us as we continue to fight for President Trump against the socialist attack to steal the election.”

The tour will hit 16 states prior to arriving in D.C. just days before the Electoral College votes.

It’s being organized by Women For America First, which was founded by Amy and Kiley Kremer. Sponsors of the tour also include Stockton’s group Tyrant’s Curse, Mike Lindell of My Pillow, War Room with Stephen Bannon, Right Side Broadcasting and many other patriots.

Despite the list of sponsors, Stockton said the movement started organically shortly after the 2020 election.

“After the election, there was so much confusion and disgust about what happened with the ballot counting,” he said. “A lot of people went to bed on election night and Trump was carrying big leads in all of the big swing states. Then, sometime in the middle of the night, those leads just completely evaporated mysteriously. It didn’t make a lot of sense. We started to hear from people all over the country who wanted to go to D.C. and make themselves seen.”

Stockton was an organizer and speaker at the Million MAGA March that took place in D.C. on Nov. 14. He said there were for sure more than half a million people there, but said there easily could have been one million – noting it is difficult to get an actual count on that kind of crowd.

“Really it didn’t take any motivating for the rally,” Stockton said. “That was done by people organically at the grassroots level. They didn’t really need any prompting to want to come out, they just needed a target to get to.

“It’s one of those things when you put a rally together, you never know whether anyone is going to come or not. We woke up that morning, the 14th of November, and people were just streaming in all day. There were just miles and miles of people with their Trump flags and their Trump gear. It was an awesome moment to see that many people rise up and stand up.”

There is a hunger from Trump supporters to continue showing their appreciation for the past four years, and that is another reason for the bus tour.

“President Trump for four solid years has stood there and fought for us and given us opportunities and made the economy better and really made America great again,” said Jennifer Lawrence, another organizer of the bus tour. “We want him to know that there are people out there supporting him and that he needs to continue to fight because we love our President Trump and our country really depends on it. If we let them steal this election, how are we ever going to have an honest election going forward?”

Stockton said Trump supporters know the election was stolen and that Joe Biden cheated.

“We’re not going to just stand by and be silent and let them steal the country from us,” he added.

Bus tours are nothing new for Stockton, who said the first bus tour he ever did was the Tea Party Express in 2009 or 2010.

“We’ve been doing these for a long time,” he said. “But normally we give ourselves six months or a year to plan them out. This time we gave ourselves basically two weeks and one of the weeks was Thanksgiving week. We’ve never seen this kind of passion and enthusiasm from people. They’re just hungry to come together and do something.”
