Flags and banners supporting Trump adorned most of the boats, as some urged the former president to run again for his second term in 2024.
The New York Post reported the flags had slogans printed on them, including “Trump Is My President,” “Trump Won,” “This Area Is a Liberal-Free Zone,” and “Trump 2024.”
“Wow! I hear they have thousands and thousands of boats parading in Jupiter, despite the fact that they tried to cancel us,” Trump said in a statement.
“Everyone is having an incredible time. On this day, we especially appreciate everyone who served and fought for our great country. I love you all!” the former president added.
Organizers of the event said it was the “largest turnout ever,” according to Newsweek.
Earlier in the day, Trump issued a statement honoring American military men and women who had fallen in battle in a Memorial Day message posted to his social media site.

“On this Memorial Day, we remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms. The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history,” he said.
“We owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting,” he added.
“God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines. We honor them today, forever, and always,” Trump concluded.
