Trump Trailer

The New England For Trump merchandise trailer in North Falmouth

The Trump merchandise trailer in North Falmouth was vandalized over the weekend, according to Falmouth Police.

Officers arrived at Holly Park, 634 North Falmouth Highway, on Sunday, August 30, at 9:18 AM and found the pop-up store had been dented, advertising signs crushed and a large sales rack knocked over. Police are investigating several leads, Lieutenant Douglas DeCosta said.

Operated by New England for Trump, the stand sells T-shirts, bumper stickers, flags and hats six days a week. Since opening in July it has been a divisive fixture, becoming a hub for opposing political views.

Protesters have stood on the sidewalks daily to show their opposition to the president.

The graphic T-shirts have messages like “Trump 2020 Make Liberals Cry Again,” “Donald J. Trump Border Wall Construction Co. Build The Wall Deport Them All,” “Deplorable Lives Matter” and the LGBT-themed “Liberty, Guns, Beer, Trump” shirt.

The employee working the stand said in July the trailer has been egged and tagged with graffiti reading “Trump Sux.” Later, a man was arrested for allegedly driving up onto the sidewalk and trying to run people down, then allegedly dropping his pants, exposing himself and spitting in the face of a woman who was landscaping, yelling that he tested positive for coronavirus. The woman shoved him and he punched her in the face, according to the report.
