A 78-year-old farmer from North Dakota is sick and tired of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer refusing to strike a deal on border wall funding.
As noted by The Daily Mail, Gene Hanson is a Trump supporter and wants the wall built along the southern border between the United States and Mexico.
To get his point across to Pelosi and Schumer, he jumped on his tractor and plowed “BUILD THE The WALL” into his field.
The message is so big that it reportedly stretches two football fields long.

Hanson’s incredible message for Democrats came just before President Donald Trump delivered a powerful address to the nation from the Oval Office on Tuesday night, urging Democrats to strike a deal to fund the border wall and reopen the federal government.
Trump was praised by many for delivering a strong and compassionate speech to the nation on a hot topic issue.
“Every day, Customs and Border Patrol agents encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country,” Trump said, noting that Customs and Border Patrol apprehended roughly 50,000 people in 2018 trying to cross the border illegally.
Trump also slammed Schumer and other Democrats for previously supporting border barriers, yet they don’t know all of a sudden.
“Senator Chuck Schumer, who you will be hearing from later tonight, has repeatedly supported a physical barrier in the past, along with other Democrats,” Trump said.
The first immigration poll of 2019 indicates that a vast majority of Americans agree with Trump on securing the border and building a wall to combating illegal immigration and drugs from pouring into the country.
According to a new Economist/YouGov survey, 93 percent of Americans say illegal immigration is a problem.
While Democrats have refused to strike a deal to reopen the government and fund the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, it appears an overwhelming majority agrees with Trump on the immediate need to secure the border.
Trump has been determined to get at least $5 billion in funding for the wall amid the government shutdown.
Over the weekend, staff for top level Democrats met at the White House with Vice President Mike Pence and others to discuss a bill to reopen the federal government and allocate funding to build the wall.
Last month, House Republicans voted 217-185 to approve a measure that would keep the government open and allocate $5.7 billion for border wall funding.
The bill is now waiting a full vote in the Senate, where lawmakers are hashing it out over funding for border security.
Trump has also threatened to declare a national emergency and have the military build his wall, which would use funds from the Department of Defense.
In fact, House Armed Service Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Smith, D-WA, stunned many over the weekend and admitted that Trump has the full authority to use the U.S. military to build the border wall.
