Activist erects anti-Trump billboard in Union Township

UNION TOWNSHIP -

An activist from the Bronx used his own money to buy an anti-President Donald Trump billboard to post in New Jersey.

Neil Harrison says that he paid about $1,000 to put an anti-Trump billboard up on Morris Avenue in Union Township. Harrison says that he is also producing a documentary. While the movie is mentioned on the billboard, he says that the sign is more about spreading his message against the president.

“Manafort was convicted.  Cohen’s giving up everything he can, and we’re hoping that Trump is next,” Harrison says. “Basically that's what we are out here for. I’m an activist and that's what I do. And we're trying to drum up some real support here.”

Harrison says that he chose to put the billboard in New Jersey because New York City does not allow political messages on its billboards.
