American truck drivers are still moving the vast majority of American freight, even as the coronavirus upends their lives and industry.

“We keep America moving. That’s just how it is going to be out here,” Ron Round, a Maine-based truck driver, tells “Tucker Carlson Tonight“.

Round starts each day at 5 a.m., running hauls from Bangor to various wood pulp mills around the state. The industrial product of the pulp mills eventually gets turned into paper.
