Trump Unity Bridge returns to Alpena

News Photo by Julie Riddle Alpena resident Chris Belanger and his sons pause to snap photos of the Trump Unity Bridge, a travelling float operated by Rob Cortis. The float, repaired after vandals took it for a joyride, has travelled to 48 states and made a brief Tuesday evening pitstop in Alpena, Cortis said, before completing its circuit of the nation. A Trump supporter, Belanger thinks the float might encourage passersby to stop, ask questions, and get to know someone with a different viewpoint. He won’t tell anyone they have to believe the same thing he does, but, “if this gets someone to think twice about it, great,” Belanger said.
