Trump Supporters Wearing 'Making America Great' Clothing Censored by High School Yearbook

Students at Wall Township High School in Wall, New Jersey, were surprised to see that pictures of fellow students wearing clothes bearing President Donald Trump's name and slogan had been altered in the school's yearbook. The students—one wore a sweater-vest with the president's name on it; another who wore a T-shirt inscribed with "Trump Make America Great Again"—appeared in the yearbook, but their pro-Trump slogans had been erased from the photos.

Wall Township District Superintendent Cheryl Dyer has launched an investigation into why the slogans were removed from the photos, Kim Keator, Dyer's executive secretary, confirmed to CBS on Monday. Keator said the teacher who served as the yearbook adviser had been suspended in connection with the Photoshopped images. The teacher's name has not yet been released.

Montana Dobrovich-Fago had issued a Trump quote to be displayed under her class-president photo in the yearbook. However, the quote had been swapped out for one by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

"I like thinking big. If you're going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big. By Donald Trump," Dobrovich-Fago recalled the quote when speaking with ABC's local affiliate in New York.

Her brother, Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago, who wore a sweater-vest bearing Trump's name, said he initially thought his picture had merely been cropped. It was when his sister's choice quote also wasn't included in the yearbook that he realized the Trump idioms had been purposely erased.

"[I thought] maybe they just cropped it out, and it wasn't something I should worry about, they just did it," he said. "I'm like, well, that's kind of crazy, two things against Trump in a way."

Grant Berardo, who wore a T-shirt displaying Trump's campaign slogan, said he was disappointed to see that the Trump reference had been removed from the yearbook, telling local newspaper Asbury Park Press Friday that he chose to wore the shirt because it represented a significant moment in America's history.

"I like Trump, but it's history, too. Wearing that shirt memorializes time," he said.

The district superintendent told the same newspaper that the school doesn't have a dress code prohibiting students from wearing clothing espousing their political views, adding that she was "quite disturbed by the entire situation."

School officials aren't sure who removed the Trump wording from the yearbook. The district uses an outside company for yearbook photos.

Wall Township High School isn't the first to censor Trump supporters in a yearbook. In May, a high school in North Carolina yanked more than 500 yearbooks after they were printed with the Trump-inspired quote "Build the wall" alongside an image of one of its students.
