Briskman says she that she was sacked for she violated Akima's social media policy by posting the image on her Facebook and Twitter. The photo soon went viral with many calling it utterly disrespectful, while some viewed it as a an accurate depiction for the contempt many Americans have for the Commander-In-Chief.

Juli Briskman was out cycling in Sterling, Virginia, when she made the gesture towards the United States president as his vehicle left Trump National Golf Course.

Juli Briskman found short-lived anonymous notoriety when a photo was taken of her from behind as she rode on her bike next to the President's motorcade the weekend before Halloween, clearly telling 45 that he's number 1.

After word spread that her employer, government contractor Akima LLC, had terminated her, supporters quickly rallied and set up a fund-raising campaign in her name. "I'm thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out".

"Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all". Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power.

"I really wasn't going to talk about this until I remembered the fellow that I actually flagged to the company that he had written very obscene things in someone else's conversation on Facebook", Briskman told Megyn Kelly in an interview on NBC.


"They said, "We're separating from you, '" Briskman had told the Huffington Post".

Despite losing her job, Ms Briskman said she did not regret the incident, adding "I'd do it again", and has since made the photo her profile and background picture on social media.

"I think I gave money for clean water once", she said. So far more than $73,000 has been raised in $5, $20, and $100 donations.

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

Neither Briskman nor Mello immediately returned requests for comment on the online fundraiser.
