Derogatory message against President Donald Trump makes appearance at UW-Madison
MADISON, Wis. — A derogatory message against President Donald Trump appeared on a digital message board Tuesday in the University of Wisconsin Madison’s Education Building.
UW-Madison’s Director of News and Media Relations Meredith McGlone said the message violated the use of the message board’s system.
“University staff responded promptly and took the message down,” McGlone said. “They are looking into this incident to determine how it happened and any follow-up action that may be appropriate.”
McGlone said university policy prohibits the use of university resources for political campaigns. On UW-Madison’s website explaining the policy, “political campaigns” are described as an activity that “can include, among other things, solicitation of campaign contributions, service in furtherance of candidates, political parties and political action committees, and advocating a particular position on a referendum.”
A Snapchat taken at 4:32 p.m. Tuesday shows the anti-Trump message.
