18-foot-long sign supporting Trump set ablaze in New Jersey

Authorities in southern New Jersey say an 18-foot-long Donald Trump sign was set on fire over the weekend.

The Press of Atlantic City reports the red, white and blue sign for the Republican presidential candidate was torched just after midnight on Saturday in Egg Harbor Township.

The owner of the sign says it’s the third time that the sign has been defaced since it was built last month. The owner says someone drew pornographic graffiti on the sign two weeks ago.

The Egg Harbor Township Police Department is investigating.
