Bridging the Divide

Rob Cortis, a 55-year-old former business owner from Livonia, has embarked on a quixotic journey to unite the country behind President Trump. Cortis, who is now unemployed, spends his days traveling the country towing a 30-foot, America first-themed steel bridge, aiming to bridge the divide between the left and the right. As a man who has never been involved in politics until this election, Cortis has become one of Michigan’s most recognized motorists and grassroots activists, politicking across the state and country on behalf of the president. This is his story.
