A large Hollywood-style “Trump” sign that was erected overnight from Monday to Tuesday on a private hillside near the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles was quickly dismantled by transit workers.
California is overwhelmingly liberal, but even in Los Angeles, President Donald Trump has his supporters.
The Los Angeles Times reported that beginning at sunrise, drivers on the freeway were greeted by the sign, which was erected on the Sepulveda Pass hillside.
The stretch of highway connects the San Fernando Valley with greater LA, and it is heavily traveled.
The Trump sign erected along the Sepulveda Pass was targeted by public officials quickly Tuesday, and they sent workers onto private property to take it down, according to the Times.
Even property rights in California aren’t sacred.
The California Department of Transportation ensured the sign was taken down by around 9 a.m.
The excuse given for going onto private property to take down the letters of a sign supporting a sitting Republican president was that the sign wasn’t safe.
