TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Northern Michigan officials say a sign supporting Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that rises roughly 35 feet above a garage roof is too big and high.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1UzMMDi ) Wednesday the days are numbered for Michael Witte’s sign featuring the candidate’s last name in 3-foot-by-3-foot capital letters attached to a vertical extension ladder atop his garage. Traverse City zoning officials say it violates size ordinances and gave Witte until the end of the week to remove it.

Witte says he’ll comply, though ponders a smaller replacement statement that apologizes for not being larger. He says he usually doesn’t follow politics but likes Trump despite “his drawbacks.”

Witte’s garage roof also bears a message: “God bless America and the world,” in matching red capital letters.
