BENNINGTON — Late-afternoon drivers came across an unusual sight Thursday — a long white metal “Trump Unity Bridge,” resembling a parade float, parked in front of the Banner offices.

“We’re encouraging people to put the negativity aside,” said Rob Cortis of Livonia, Mich., who owns the truck and trailer, which he drives across the country in support of Trump, trying to bring people together, he said.

He pointed to a list of concerns on a metal sign on his bridge that people have provided in his travels. Some of them are infrastructure, common sense, buy American, hire American, and healthcare.

According to a video Cortis posted on Facebook of himself in Bennington, his message is to put negativity aside and work on the positive things.

His next stop — Maine.

Earlier on Wednesday, he said, he gave a speech in Bennington about who he is to some “Republican Patriot” people. “People supported Bush, they supported Clinton, they supported Obama — they should support Trump,” he said.
