An Ohio Air Force veteran used biodegradable paint to transform his entire yard into a Trump 2020 banner ahead of the November election – earning praise from the President himself.
J.R. Majewski, of Port Clinton, used around 120 gallons of paint to create a 19,000-square-foot banner to cover his long, triangular front yard of of his Bay Township home.
This isn’t the first time the yard was restyled Majewski, who last July painted a massive American flag in his yard to honor patriotism and his fellow military veterans.

But this year he wanted to focus on President Donald Trump.

The space was initially going to be a National League of Families POW/MIA flag, but he chaged his mind after talking to his fellow veterans
Several neighbors and a state official have stopped by to see the display, which Majewski said has garnered positive feedback
Initially, Majewski told Port Clinton News Herald that he planned to paint the National League of Families POW/MIA flag, but discovered there could be problems with the amount of black paint needed.
The inspiration to create a campaign-like Trump banner sparked after speaking with other members of a local veterans group, many of which are Trump supporters.
‘You see and hear a lot from the president on his support of the military. New weapons, new equipment, new technology — all of those things matter,’ said Majewski.
‘I think as a veteran, it’s highly appreciated.’

Majewski, who served in Afghanistan, said he remembers going more than 40 days without a shower because they had no access to running water.
Since the banner was completed, Majewski said he’s received overwhelmingly positive and even got a shout out from Trump.
‘Thank you to J.R. Majewski, a great Air Force Veteran and Trump Supporter who did a beautiful job of turning his lawn into a giant Trump Sign,’ Trump wrote on Sunday morning,
‘Thanks also to your fantastic Ohio neighbors. We are making record progress on JOBS, etc. Big Silent Majority!!!’
President Trump praised Majewski on Twitter and thanked him for the ‘beautiful job’ he did in transforming his front lawn
He’s also heard support from the Ottawa County Republican Party and Rep. Douglas Swearingen of District 89, who visited the mural.
Majewski was also featured on Fox & Friends ‘Shot of the Morning’ segment where he showed off the banner.
‘I think he’s going through a lot right now, trouble s and turmoils right now, and a lot of people like myself out here supporting him,’ he told the station.
‘And we’ve been silent, but it’s about time we voice our support.
Majewski said that several of his neighbors have stopped by and he’s received ‘a lot of positive feedback.’
He also placed a few signs around the banner saying that he can still be friends with people on the other end of the political spectrum.
‘YES I support TRUMP and YES we can still be friends even if you don’t,’ one sign read.

Majewski created a GoFundMe to raise money so the banner can remain in place through the November election
‘We do not have to be vicious to one another, that’s what’s dividing us right now,’ siad Majewski.
‘Not that I wanted it, but I did anticipate a little bit more friction, but there has been absolutely none.’
Majewski created a GoFundMe on Saturday to keep the Trump banner on his lawn through the November election.
‘I would like to maintain the TRUMP Flag through November but the costs are be too substantial for me as an individual,’ he wrote.
‘Donated funding would be used to purchase of environmentally friendly, non-VOC, organic field paint, application of the paint, and lawn maintenance of the flag.’
