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.
