OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - The owner of Ocean Aerial Ads in Maryland will pull political banners supporting Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump after a series of complaints.

News outlets report that the ads, which flew on banner planes for only one day, read “Stop Mad Cow Disease … Stop Hillary” and “America First. Build That Wall.”

Owner Bob Bunting received numerous complaints about the banners. He says, however, that he had no political motivation in flying the banners, and that it was nothing more than a business transaction. If a customer had paid for a banner for Democrat Hillary Clinton, Bunting says it would have flown.

Ocean City Mayor Richard Meehan also received complaints about the banners. Meehan says Bunting has told him he’s no longer going to run political ads.
