Two Montana men came up with a novel way to show their disapproval of President Donald Trump's visit to the state Saturday.

The Great Falls Tribune reported that Kevin Crawford of Bozeman and Curtis Roe of Belgrade carved the message "FU45" in 60 foot letters running 150 feet across in a field right under the flight path to be taken by Air Force One in its approach to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

Crawford told the publication he didn't simply want to protest against the president's visit at his rally in Belgrade, Montana, Saturday afternoon, as "his wingnut base loves nothing more than to think they are pissing off a bunch of liberals who are protesting."

He said he discussed with his friend how they should register their disapproval of Trump's visit, and after a couple of beers started mowing out the giant letters.

"It's just to express displeasure or disgust — or I could think of a lot of other adjectives," he said. "My approach was, we said what we had to say with a lawnmower."

At Saturday's rally, Trump called for Montana's voters to replace Democratic Senator Jon Tester, and detailed his personal grudge against the incumbent, who he blamed for the defeat of his nominee to run the Department of Veterans Affairs, White House doctor Ronny Jackson.

"That's why I'm here," Trump said. "I've never forgotten it and it's honestly one of the reasons I'm here so much," said Trump, who in Montana only weeks ago. "It's a disgrace, what he did to that man."

Protesters have previously resorted to original ways to express their opposition to the president in the state, with protesters placing large letters spelling out 'impeach' and 'liar' on mountains surrounding the town of Missoula during the president's October 18 visit.

Crawford said his main objection to Trump was "his treatment of women and minorities and his treatment of anybody who doesn't agree with him. He shouldn't be anywhere near the White House."
