As the 2016 election approaches, tensions are high, particularly in swing states such as Pennsylvania, where voters can truly decide the outcome of the election.
In the midst of these heightened tensions, people have become volatile and have taken to acting out against their political opponents.
According to WNEP, businessman Bob Bolus of Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, donated a truck to the Trump campaign, which is used as an ad for the Republican nominee.
The truck is decorated with photos of Donald Trump, as well as quotes and catchphrases such as, “All Lives Matter” and “Build The Wall.” It has drawn lots of attention from people in the area.
“Thousands of people stop and take pictures of this,” Bolus said. “It’s been on every Twitter account you can think of. In Face, the Chinese newspaper and the Japanese newspaper were there and interviewed me there in Cleveland.”
Despite all of the attention the truck has garnered, not everybody is a fan. The truck was reportedly vandalized in the Scranton area. Police are investigating the vandalization and reportedly have a suspect in mind.
While election tensions may get the best of some people in a heated moment, it’s important to remember that destruction of property is not okay, even if you disagree with the supporters of a candidate you do not like.
Bolus told WNEP that despite the vandalization, he plans to make more tractor trailers for Trump in the near future.
