Bus covered with Trump signs crashes before rally in Staten Island

A bus covered in pro-Trump signs smashed into a power pole in Staten Island, N.Y., on Sunday, hours before a rally for the former president nearby.

The bus, every inch plastered with signs supporting former President Trump, reportedly rolled down an incline and was seriously damaged running into the pole, according to a video of the aftermath.

“It was parked by the CVS and it just rolled down,” says a man in the video, off camera. “Nobody was in it.”

“This, right after Trump gets declared guilty,” the man jokes.

An entire side panel of the bus was ripped off by the crash, and debris including multiple pro-Trump signs littered the ground around the site.

Trump was convicted Thursday of 34 felony counts of falsifying business documents, the first time a former president has ever been convicted of a crime. He has appealed the ruling.

The former president’s sentencing is scheduled for July 11. He could face up to four years in prison.
