Donald Trump is known as a sometimes eccentric, yet charismatic, leader who is determined to restoring American pride by “making America great again.” It turns out his supporters are just as passionate about his goal of restoring pride to America as he is. One supporter, Leslie Rossi, decided to show her support by turning her home into a massive American flag.
If you travel down route 982 in Youngsown, PA you will have a hard time missing the home-turned internet sensation. Most people simply hang a flag in their front yard or from their porch, Rossi has decided to take her pride to the next level. The lovely brick home has been transformed into a symbol of American values, the yard blanketed in “trump 2016” signs, and Rossi herself can be seen in the yard handing out hats and other freebies to the sudden influx of visitors.
The proud mother of eight and her friends and family aren’t ashamed to show their support and have stated that passerbys aren’t either. She stated:
Here we’ll get a lot of honks and waves, Sometimes I’ll get a thumbs down. But we’ll just wave anyway. Sometimes they’ll yell for the candidate they’re for, if it’s different.
Rossi and her husband make their living by purchasing old buildings, restoring them, then renting them out or reselling. She decided to paint the home as a a positive approach to campaigning. With election season right around the corner voters are already being bombarded by smear campaigns around every corner. Rossi has found a refreshign way to show her support without slighting anyone who disagrees with her opinoin.
It doesn’t do any good to respond negatively. So if it’s too far, or I don’t feel I can control it, I just say I don’t want to speak to you. Please leave me alone.
Rossi has stated that once the election is over she will restore it to it’s former state. The flag will be painted over and replaced by more traditional aesthetics.
