A Massachusetts man compared his town to Nazi Germany because he’s allowed to set up only one Donald Trump campaign sign in his yard.
George Vazquez put four Trump signs on his front lawn, along state Route 116 in Sunderland, but he said he was nearly forced to take them down when police responded to a complaint about the display, reported the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
The complaint, as it turned out, was made by someone who lives with Vazquez.
“I have been persecuted, the police department has come here, come into my house, raided my house and stood in my kitchen,” Vazquez said. “I had Trump signs on my lawn and a sergeant from Sunderland threatened to arrest me.”
Police said they did not arrest Vazquez, and they referred his housemate to the town’s zoning enforcement department.
The signs remain on his lawn, the newspaper reported.
Vazquez, who is Puerto Rican, said he believed Trump would use his business experience to help everyone prosper, regardless of race.
“He’s the only one who has done anything — he’s the only one who has built anything,” Vazquez said. “Other candidates haven’t run a candy store.”
Vazquez has been to several Trump rallies in nearby New Hampshire, and he said he supports Trump’s policies on national security, the economy and trade — and he believes the Republican will extend universal health care.
“He’s a problem-solver, an innovator,” Vazquez said. “He finds faults and will fix them and make them right, and he will do it for a good dollar value.”
Edit: Vazquez lives in Massachusetts, not Vermont.
