An early morning Facebook post alleging that the impromptu "Trump Country" sign on Highway 95 south of Bonners Ferry was vandalized by paintball attack in the wake of a legal billboard proclaiming Boundary County's diversity erected Wednesday appears false.
It is hoped that it stay that way.
A photo taken at 8:15 a.m. shows no damage to the Trump sign, posted a few weeks ago on a vacant on-premise sign standard belonging to the Paradise Valley Inn.
Under Idaho code, billboard signs are only allowed on public roads outside incorporated city limits on the premises on which the business is conducted.
In a brief series of responses, those on both sides agreed that vandalism is not an appropriate response, and it was suggested that the county's Trump supporters pitch in to buy a larger sign.
