MEADVILLE, Pa. — A Pennsylvania school board member is defending social media posts critical of President Donald Trump with hashtags saying people could “Make America Great Again” with a “clean head shot.”

A resident complained at a Crawford Central School Board meeting Monday about Glenn Tuttle’s posts, but Tuttle tells The Meadville Tribune he stands by them.

Tuttle ran as a Republican to fill a vacant seat in 2013 and again as a Republican in 2015, though he has identified himself as libertarian in recent months.

Tuttle wrote, “#MAGA with a clean head shot,” repeatedly on Facebook in December, using the abbreviation for Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.”

When asked if he was a racist, Tuttle responded, “Only towards the trailer trash KKK supporters that make up Chump’s support base.”
