A supporter of President Trump in Texas is using billboard space to slam ABC News over its coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Kyle Courtney of Boerne, Texas, placed an ad saying he “grew up with” ABC News but they let him down with coverage of the scandal, which includes allegations that members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the election.

“ABC News: I grew up with you. We are through. The Russians didn’t elect Donald Trump. I did,” the billboard reads.

“ABC News was the only channel I watched as a child growing up in Texas but I think they have lost touch with America and forgotten the working man,” Courtney said in a statement, according to San Antonio’s NBC News affiliate. Boerne is a suburb of San Antonio.


Courtney accused the media of acting in “coordination” with Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 election.

“Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was funded by the Clinton Foundation in close coordination with the media, and now we’re seeing them try to fix what they couldn’t fix during the election,” Courtney said. “They are doing everything they can, night after night, to create narratives and sway people’s direction to impeach Donald Trump.”

Courtney’s billboard is expected to remain up for two months, according to a spokesman from his company Wellstar Groundwater Technologies.
