Appearing on Fox and Friends, Air Force veteran and Trump supporter J.R. Majewski said that he hopes to keep his epic 19,000-square-foot lawn mural through the election.
“A lot of people like myself here supporting him. We’ve been silent but I think it’s about time we voice our support” Majewski says.
Port Herald News Herald reports it took Majewski about 120 gallons of paint to create the 19,000-square-foot banner, which spans nearly the entire length of his long, triangular front yard on West Elmore Road in Bay Township, just west of Port Clinton near the Portage River.
The effort was not an entirely new experience for Majewski, who around the same time last year in early July painted a huge American flag in his yard as both a patriotic gesture and a way to support his fellow military veterans.
But this year, he went even bigger.
Originally, Majewski said, he had planned to paint the well-known National League of Families POW/MIA flag, but later found that there could be issues with the amount of black paint needed for the project.
Majewski uses a biodegradable, chalk-based paint that will not harm the environment.
After speaking with fellow members of a local veterans group, many of whom are also Trump supporters, Majewski said he decided to go for it.
