Thank you for sharing this. The fact that neither AAF nor DOT commented and that the opposition groups had several qualms make it sound like speculation with few hard facts. Roping in the President's finances and security and talking crap about AAF? It shows how deep in the mud the opposition groups are willing to go to discredit AAF and the growth of passenger rail in FL.
Honestly, this most recent attack should discredit any credibility CARE had (very little to begin with). Trump's motorcade uses Southern Blvd, direct from the airport to Mar-a-Lago. Southern Blvd is actually grade seperated over both the South Florida Rail Corridor (Tri-Rail/CSX/Amtrak) and the FEC Rwy (Brightline). Not to mention that trains are stopped in the area before, during, and after the motorcade. Now if you want to complain about "bomb trains", your issue is with the freight carrier, not Brightline.
Now on the other hand, Fort Pierce is becoming serious about pursuing a stop. Note that the city never funded any opposition efforts, and I seem to remember St. Lucie County backing down early.
