A New Jersey man is facing a fine for flying flags supporting Donald Trump.

Joseph Hornick thought police were responding to his reports that the flags proclaiming “Trump Make America Great Again” had been vandalized. Instead, he was ticketed for violating an ordinance that restricts the display of political signs.

According to the police report, a former Democratic councilman complained about the flag.

“I’m not taking the flag down, and if I do 90 days in jail, I’ll do 90 days in jail,” Hornick said.
