OCEAN CITY, Md.- A local business owner has grounded Donald Trump airplane banner ads after getting complaints. Bob Bunting, owner of Ocean Aerial Ad said his company was hired to fly two political banners supporting Trump.

Bunting and the Mayor of Ocean City started getting numerous complaints about the banners message. One banner read "Stop Made Cow Disease...Stop Hillary" the other read "America First. Build that Wall."

Bunting said his decision to fly the banners was not political.

" It was a pure business decision to tow the banners. They paid us royally for them, but at this point I don't think towing political banners is worth it. If a democrat had hired me to tow anti-Trump banners we would have done that. It's just business, we tow advertising, but people are taking it too personal," Bunting said. 

Bunting said his company has towed a few political ad banners for clients prior to this incident with no complaints, but he said now he wants to keep his company out of the political arena.
