All the money raised goes directly to Briskman, he says on the site.
The whole incident took place when Briskman was cycling through Sterling, Virginia in September and President Trump's motorcade passed her on the way to one of his golf courses. "I have connected with Juli and she has been officially setup as the beneficiary on this GoFundMe campaign", Rob Mello, who started the fundraiser last week, said.
She gave President Trump's motorcade the finger - and now supporters are raising tens of thousands of dollars for her.
On Oct. 31, her bosses called the 50-year-old mother of two into a meeting and fired her, saying she had violated the company's social media policy by using an obscene photo on her Twitter and Facebook pages. A GoFundMe campaign spotted by Dazed Monday cites Briskman as "an inspiration to us all", which is very true. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. "I'm going to be working for you, I'm not going to have time to play golf. So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'" she told HuffPost after getting the pink slip.
She insisted that she does not regret her decision and said she was pleased to be a symbol of resistance towards the president, adding: "In some ways, I'm doing better than ever". More than 2,500 people have made donations through the page. "I got to tell him, hopefully, how I really feel".
"I think we have a big problem in this country", she said to the audience's applause.
