The campaign was started last week by a man named Rob Mello on behalf of Briskman after news broke that she had been fired from her job over the incident.

However, unidentifiable, Ms Briskman herself posted the viral photo on her Facebook and Twitter profiles.

Briskman was riding her bike past the presidential caravan October 28 in Sterling, Va. when she was photographed by a White House photographer giving the one-finger salute.

A woman riding her bike as Donald Trump's motorcade drove alongside her made national headlines when she flipped the president the bird.

The 50-year-old mother of two had been working for government contractor Akima LLC, who didn't take kindly to the attention she had brought on herself and the company.

"Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all". All proceeds are being donated directly to Juli.

She added: "Only one third of Puerto Rico has power". 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. "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene.'" she told HuffPost after getting the pink slip.

In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Briskman said the gesture was "the only way I had to give him the message that I wanted to give him", which was: "Really? But they told me I violated the code of conduct policy".

"I think we have a big problem in this country", she said to the audience's applause.

Social media users heaped praise on the image of Ms Briskman at the time, hailing her as a "Heroine!" and even going so far as saying she should run for president in the 2020 election.
