Graffiti reading “Dump Trump” was visible Thursday atop the grain elevator near 35th Street and Interstate 80.

Ron Safarik, co-owner of the property, said he and the other owner, Richard Brock, have contacted the Omaha Graffiti Task Force and made a police report. Safarik said he doesn’t know when vandals painted the graffiti, but he became aware of it Thursday afternoon.

“This is an act of vandalism ... that is neither sponsored, condoned or encouraged by myself or the co-owner of my property,” Safarik said. “We will be removing that as resources and time permit. Based upon the physical location, it’s not just something we can walk up and clean up in a hurry.”

He estimated that each letter was about 8 feet tall.

Thousands of motorists pass the elevators daily, and many are likely to see the statement on their way to Trump's campaign rally in Omaha on Friday.

And he regaled his audience with a very long and confusing golf story, the point of which was that he won the Florida primary despite having his golf game interrupted by a barrage of anti-Trump TV ads.
