You’ve likely heard the story of the rioters who went on a destructive tangent when President Trump was inaugurated. During these riots, some decided to torch a limousine, scrawling “we the people” on the side of it. The damages are said to cost somewhere around $70,000.
Interestingly enough, the owner of the limousine is the kind of person these rioters claim they stand against Trump for. His name is Muhammad Ashraf, and he is a Muslim immigrant who owns his own business called Nationwide Chauffered Services.
Hearing the news, Marlo F Johnson of Palm Coast, Florida decided to help Ashraf with finances in order to help cover some of the damages. He started a GoFundMe page, writing “we are all coming together to Help Nationwide Chauffered Services LLC From Alexandria, VA. They are a victim of a senseless act that led to one of their limousines being destroyed. This is an effort to help this company rebuild in their time of need. This is what this Industry Does !!! Pull together and show our support. Thank you all for helping this company.”
The GoFundMe page had a goal set for $20,000, and over the course of nine days the page has blown past its goal, and as of this writing it currently sits at over $28,000 with 898 people contributing funds.
Interestingly enough, many of these backers are open Trump supporters.
