Nick Umbs is definitely one of the biggest fans of President Trump, and he is showing it vociferously in public.
"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."
The irony is the area isn’t even Trump country. In Fairfax County in 2016, Trump received just more than 28 percent of the vote. In 2016, Hillary Clinton earned 64 percent of the vote. Fairfax County voted Democrat in the last four presidential elections, according to Virginia historical data.
WTSP reported that Umbs has adopted one mile of Burke Lake Road, part of Ox Road in Lorton and part of 123 near a bridge into Occoquan; he also is working on adopting a section of Rolling Road.
To earn the signs, Umbs has to pick up garbage twice a year along the nearly four miles of roads he's adopted.
He said he shall pick up one to two bags worth.
"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."
