Meet the Oak Park, Mich. Trump supporter honoring the 9/11 victims on a freeway overpass

George Hunter of the The Detroit News spotted this gentleman waving the flag on a freeway overpass and “Being a nosy reporter I stopped to ask what prompted him to do this”:

As I was headed back to work from lunch today I spotted this solitary figure standing on the freeway overpass at Greenfield and 696 in Oak Park, waving an American flag at motorists. Being a nosy reporter I stopped to ask what prompted him to do this… pic.twitter.com/sYh4Sld6Xp

As for why he’s doing this, “I love this country and want to make sure those people who died on 911 are never forgotten”:

“I just think it’s the right thing to do,” he said. “I love this country and want to make sure those people who died on 911 are never forgotten.” pic.twitter.com/KHkQQS62U8

Oh, and by the way, he’s a Trump supporter:

He said he’s been on the overpass for “a couple hours” and has an appointment, but will be back afterward. Says he’s a big Trump supporter, as evidenced by his apparel. pic.twitter.com/B6vgM9QkTQ
