NEW YORK CITY, NY – Four people who hung a pro-Donald Trump banner from the Manhattan Bridge were arrested Thursday afternoon, police said. The banner saying “Re-Elect Donald J. Trump 2020” and “Keep America Great” showed up just after 3:30 p.m., the NYPD said.
The apparent presidential supporters took down the 12-foot-by-20-foot banner and were taken into custody and brought to the 5th Precinct in Chinatown, a police spokesman said.
The banner was unfurled just after Trump’s visit to New York for the United Nations General Assembly. He returned to Washington, D.C. Thursday morning.
One witness said the banner didn’t last long.
