I Did What I Felt Was Morally Right': Driver Gets Kudos After Videotaping Himself Mowing Down Trump Campaign Sign. But Cops Catch Viral Clip as Well.

“Spread love, not hate.”

When Julien Thomas Schuessler was asked why he intentionally pulled off the road to knock over a Donald Trump campaign sign, the 20-year-old had a brief reply.

“I did what I felt was morally right," WECT-TV reported he said. "Spread love, not hate.”

Schuessler's move is indeed spreading.

Since the North Carolina resident posted a video of himself crashing into a Trump sign in Wilmington on Tuesday — the day of the state's primary — his Facebook clip has been viewed more than 3 million times and has attracted more than 80,000 shares.

He wrote only this message to accompany the video: "I love having a Jeep sometimes."

As you might imagine, Schuessler has been lauded for his actions by friends as well as people in general who don't like Trump: "You're literally my favorite person ever," commented Sarah El-Baytam; "My friend Julien Schuessler got a viral video going and it couldn't be more awesome. Props," David Arango posted; "So badass," Kendall Anthony-Busbee wrote.

But given the clip's viral status, it wasn't long before police caught wind of it: Schuessler has been charged with hit and run, reckless driving and failing to maintain lane control, WECT-TV reported.

In response, friends apparently launched a GoFundMe page in support of Schuessler, but the page was soon taken down.

WECT also reported that on Tuesday a red Swastika was painted on a different Trump campaign sign in the area.
