A North Dakota farmer plowed a message for President TrumpDonald TrumpRealClearPolitics reporter says Freedom Caucus shows how much GOP changed under Trump Jake Ellzey defeats Trump-backed candidate in Texas House runoff DOJ declines to back Mo Brooks's defense against Swalwell's Capitol riot lawsuit MORE into the snow on his property, encouraging him to “Build The Wall.”

Gene Hanson of Edgeley, N.D., wrote the a message to Trump on his snow-covered property, which covers two football fields according to Fox News, shortly after the president's prime-time address pushing for border wall funding. 

"President Trump, stand your ground and get-R-done," Hanson wrote on Facebook Tuesday night. 


The 78-year-old retired farmer has used his “cornfield art” to make headlines before.

He got the attention of Trump in 2017 when he wrote “WE stand for the National Anthem” in the midst of Trump’s feud with the NFL over players kneeling to protest police brutality and the treatment of minorities.

“Thanks you Gene Hanson — a GREAT American (and farmer) who is standing up for our flag, our anthem, and our country!” Trump wrote on Facebook.

Hanson has also plowed “Drain the Swamp," "Blue Lives Matter," "Trump Nobel Peace Prize" and "Never Hillary," according to the Daily Mail.

Not all of Hanson’s messages are political. He also created the "Purple Rain" symbol in his field after singer Prince's death in 2016.

There has been a partial government shutdown in effect since Dec. 22 as Trump battles with Democrats over the $5.7 billion he wants to use to build a wall along the southern border.
