The retired 78-year-old North Dakota farmer plowed the message for the President
A retired farmer from Edgeley, North Dakota recently showed his support for President Donald Trump. He plowed a message that was viewable from the sky.
The message was a show of support for Trump’s planned border wall between the US and Mexico.
Gene Hanson, 78, is a retired farmer who made a message for President Donald Trump. His message came after Trump gave his prime-time address to the nation from the Oval Office.
The message spanned over two football fields. Hearing about his message, the president called the retired farmer a "great American.”
Speaking to the media, Hanson showed his support further by saying, "President Trump, stand your ground and get-R-done.” On Monday night, the president took to Twitter to thank his supporters.
Regarding his speech on the border crisis, Trump wrote to his supporters, “Thank you for soooo many nice comments regarding my Oval Office speech. A very interesting experience!”
In 2017, during the protest by a handful of NFL players who were kneeling during the National Anthem, Hanson had used his plowing skills to share his thoughts. At the time he’d plowed: "We stand for the National Anthem.”
In December, for Christmas, he asked his neighbor to use his cows to deliver a hopeful message. He used the cows to form a cross and many who saw it couldn’t help but retort, "Holy cow!"
Hanson used his plane and drone to capture photos and videos of the fields near his home to be able to share the footage.
A thought piece written in November last year questioned if it was time for Minnesota to build a wall on the North Dakota border. More on this point of view can be found here.
