Virginia Family ‘Enraged' After Trump Sign Vandalized

A group of young Donald Trump supporters in Haymarket, Virginia, say they are angry but determined after a sign they made supporting the presumptive Republican nominee was vandalized.

"I'm enraged," said Trump supporter Bucky Potter.

Potter, along with three of his siblings and a few friends, put up a 4 feet tall by 8 feet wide sign that said "Trump Country" on his family's property on Monday night.

The following morning, they found the five American flags they placed on the sign broken and tossed on the ground. On Wednesday, someone spray painted the sign and threw eggs at it.

"It's not meant to bother anybody. We're just giving out our opinion, what we stand for, and somebody comes and destroys it," Nicholas Potter said.

Tonight the group painted another sign and put it up in the same spot.

"I think it's a good idea to continue on and always do what you believe in, even if someone gets in your way," Jackie Potter said.
