A massive sign that read Trump appeared above California’s 405 Freeway for some time on Tuesday, before authorities took it down saying it was a traffic hazard.

Several pictures and videos shared on social media showed the sign, which was styled like the iconic Hollywood sign near Sepulveda Pass, west of Los Angeles.

The sign consisted of large white letters that spelt “Trump” and was reportedly spotted by people travelling on the freeway at around 7 am, Los Angeles Times reported.

Though it wasn’t clear who placed the sign, the chief public information officer for the California Department of Transportation said that the sign was taken down after concerns over it distracting drivers. Authorities also were unable to explain how the sign was erected and who was behind it.

Sharing the video of the sign on Twitter, Trump wrote, “Vote TRUMP California. No more blackouts, shutdowns, ridiculous forest fires, or water “rationing” (coming soon). We can win in California NOW!”.

Here’s how people reacted to pictures of the sign:

A Fox News report said that many complaints were filed over it being a wildfire risk due to the sign’s placement over dry bush.
