The US election may seem very far away, but for Sydneysiders it got a whole lot closer on Sunday with the skies of the Harbour City becoming a giant message of support for Donald Trump.
On Sunday morning, the words “Trump 2020” were written by sky writers above Sydney’s famous beaches.
Despite the election being called for Democrat Joe Biden and claims of vote rigging by the Trump camp being so far unproven, the message appears to suggest Mr Trump could yet win a second term.
The writing could be seen from Bondi all the way to the city’s inner west and north shore.
Opinions, it’s fair to say, were mixed about the sudden appearance of the sky high sign of support.
“Which nut job decided to ruin a beautiful day in Sydney with this?” asked University of Sydney academic Professor Tim Stephens.,
He created his own doctored version which predicted Mr Trump’s eventual loss.
But NewsCorp columnist Rita Panahi, who is currently in quarantine in a Sydney hotel, tweeted that she found the message quite funny.
In the US, the convulsions over the disputed election continues.
Mr Trump briefly attended a rally being held in his name in Washington DC on Saturday.
Several thousand Trump supporters descended on the capital city urging Mr Trump not to concede the election amid unproven claims of electoral fraud.
The so-called Million MAGA March didn’t attract anywhere near that number of people but nonetheless around 10,000 supporters of the President made their feelings known that they want to see Mr Trump remain in office.
