A farmer in North Dakota said he blazed a message supporting the national anthem in his field of beans because he disagreed with the ongoing NFL protests during the playing of the song.
Farmer Gene Hanson appeared on "Fox and Friends" Wednesday morning and explained his reasons for spending extra time on his tractor to spell out "We Stand For The National Anthem" in his field.
"I just disagree with the kneeling for the national anthem. I didn't think it was anything about black, white or brown, Democrat or Republican," Hanson said. "It was all about honoring our flag and our country. There's a lot of people that died for it, so I thought that it should be honored."
Hanson's artistic message caught the attention of President Donald Trump, who posted this on Facebook Tuesday:
Hanson said getting noticed by the president was exciting.
"Oh boy, that was something," he said. "Next best thing to it would be to shake his hand, I guess."
Hanson has plowed other messages into his field, including "Vote Trump Never Hillary," GOP Get Your Act Together," Drain the Swamp."
