Jay Johnson purchased a $1,000 Trump 2020 flag to display it at a construction site. The political flag measures 50 feet by 30 feet. Johnson wanted to fly the flag on a crane at his working zone in Buffalo, Minnesota. This caused a stir, not because of the flag itself, but because Johnson needs a license in order to fly it.
The city of Buffalo said that if Johnson doesn’t get a license, he will go to jail. This caused controversy since it’s a custom-made flag that features the 2020 Trump campaign. Johnson also revealed that he supports both Trump and the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. He has since become a target for sharing his political beliefs.
Johnson noticed bullets on one of his construction vehicles. He argued that someone used it for target practice and he could become a target next. There’s been a debate over whether Johnson should fly the controversial flag that’s also massive in size. The city of Buffalo received over 100 comments and complaints from citizens who are divided.
