Omaha drama: Brother calls cops after Biden-backing sister takes Trump sign off his SUV

Donald Trump Jr. made a campaign stop in Omaha and Iowa on Monday.

The contentious 2020 presidential election has prompted an Omaha family to involve the police in their disagreement over which candidate deserves support.

A 52-year-old man and supporter of President Donald Trump called Omaha police Sunday afternoon after he looked out the front window of his Keystone neighborhood home to see his sister and Joe Biden backer pull up, peel a $15 “Trump/Pence” magnet off his SUV and leave.

The man told police that his sister, 49, and his mother hate that he supports Trump.

Officers spoke to the sister, who said she took the magnet sign because she feared for her mother’s safety and didn’t want anyone to damage the home because of a Trump sign.

She told police that her brother “is completely brainwashed with Trump stuff” and mentally unstable, according to a police report.

The brother told officers that he did not want to press charges.
