Briskman has spoken out since the incident, saying on MSNBC last week that she didn't have any other way to express he disappointment in the Trump administration.

Till this day, the image remains her cover photo on her Facebook page.

When asked by the Washington Post whether she regrets her actions, she replied like the American hero she is: "I'd do it again".

"Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all", the donation page read. All proceeds are being donated directly to Juli.

Still without a job however, a GoFundMe campaign was created on November 6 to assist the able-fingered activist with a goal of $100,000. "As the campaign beneficiary, she will be able to post updates and comments, so stay tuned!"

The woman who flipped off President Trump while riding her bicycle, only to lose her job over the photo, is getting help from donors online.

"He was passing by and my blood just started to boil", she said.

She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power".

As the vehicle passed she made the gesture towards the presidency, which was captured by several photographers.

"They said, "We're separating from you, '" she recalled to HuffPost".

She said: "I'm angry about where our country is right now". She was sacked shortly thereafter, reportedly because she posted the photo on her social media accounts, which qualified as "obscene" content and supposedly violated her company's employee conduct guidelines.

The US president was making his 96th visit to one of his properties when Briskman saw red and flipped him the finger.

She gave President Trump's motorcade the finger - and now supporters are raising tens of thousands of dollars for her.
