A Virginia man who supports President Trump is showing it in public by adopting a 1-mile section of highway in Fairfax County.
Nick Umbs is behind Adopt a Highway signs in Fairfax County, Virginia, being cared for by the President Trump Fan Club, FOX 5 DC reported.
The club Nick Umbs admits has just a few members. Himself, his girlfriend and a few friends.
“I thought it would be kind of a neat idea to do something kind of in support because all of this publicity that we see is always negative, negative, negative,” Umbs, a lifelong resident of Burke, Virginia, told FOX 5 DC. “And I wanted to show that there are people out there who are supportive of the president who are doing good and good for the community.”
To earn the signs, at least twice in the last year Umbs, his girlfriend, and others have picked up trash along both roadways.
“No matter what side of the aisle people are on they thank us, they roll down the window and give us a thumbs up, honk their horn.”
Umbs has adopted 1 mile of Burke Lake Road, part of Ox Road in Lorton and part of 123 near a bridge into Occoquan.
Fairfax County is not a Trump county. During the 2016 presidential election, President Trump received just more than 28 percent of the vote, while it was 64 percent for Hillary Clinton. In the last four elections, the county voted Democrat, according to Fox News.
Yet, the wave just acts as fuel for Umbs, who is also working on adopting a section of Rolling Road, WTSP reported.
“I really like President Trump,” Umbs told WTSP. “I really feel like he follows through with what he says, and number one that he absolutely loves the country … and if I have to clean up trash to show my support, I’m willing to do that.”
