President Trump announced Sunday the annual Rolling Thunder veterans gathering would go on past this year, which was expected to be its last ride according to the Washington Examiner.

Since 1988, veterans and supporters have ridden motorcycles through Washington to show support and solidarity for prisoners of war and those missing in action.

Rolling Thunder has 90 chapters in 29 states. It began with about 3,000 riders and has now grown to up to 70,000 participants.
