Patriotic farmer Gene Hanson of Edgeley, North Dakota plowed the message for the president
A patriotic farmer has plowed a giant message of support for President Donald Trump into a snow-covered field that reads “build the wall.”
Gene Hanson of Edgeley, North Dakota, plowed the supportive statement following the president’s prime-time address to the nation from the Oval Office.
The retired 78-year-old Midwesterner, whom Trump has previously called a “great American,” has performed similar stunts in the past that have caught the president’s attention.
His latest message urged President trump to “Build the wall” in letters so big, it spanned over a two-football-field-sized area of his snow-filled property.
“President Trump, stand your ground and get-R-done,” Hanson told Fox News.
Trump took to Twitter Monday night to thank people for “soooo many nice comments” on his speech on the border crisis.
Thank you for soooo many nice comments regarding my Oval Office speech. A very interesting experience!

According to Fox News, this is not the first time the farmer from North Dakota has used his field to send a message to the nation.
In 2017, when a handful of NFL players were kneeling during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Hanson plowed: “We stand for the National Anthem,” which Trump noticed and shared on social media.
The president thanked Hanson, describing him as “a GREAT American,” adding that the farmer is “standing up for our flag, our anthem, and our country!”
And in December, for Christmas, Hanson hopped off the plow and, instead, asked his neighbor to use his cows to deliver a hopeful message.
The cows formed the sign of the cross, which Hanson said, led many to say, quite literally, “Holy cow!”
