A digital road sign in New York was programmed to display messages promoting President Trump and criticizing the state’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
A resident driving through the Hudson River Valley town of Fishkill, New York, on Wednesday morning spotted the altered road sign, which displayed the messages “Trump 2020” and “CUOMO KILLED NY,” according to the New York Daily News.
“Couldn’t believe my eyes this morning on Washington [Avenue],” Erin Mayne Kleinke posted on Facebook, with photos of the sign.
“It’s in the town of Fishkill,” Fishkill Supervisor Ozzy Albra said Wednesday. “It’s a private construction sign notifying residents of a future road closing. An unknown person changed the text and since has been corrected.”
It is not clear who is responsible for changing the sign. The company that owns the equipment, ADMAR Construction Equipment & Supplies, said the sign can be programmed right on the machine and that it’s “out of Admar’s control” once that is done.
Dutchess County, New York, where Fishkill sits, voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton, 48.4% to 47.3%.
