LOUISIANA, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Transportation has apologized for posting an edited photo that cropped out a boy’s “Trump 2020” shirt and appeared to blur part of his “Trump 2020” cap.

KSDK-TV reports that Mitchel Lemons of Nebo, Illinois, won a raffle to push the detonator for a controlled explosion to remove an old Mississippi River bridge at Louisiana, Missouri, on Friday. The Champ Clark Bridge was recently replaced.

MoDOT posted on social media a photo cropped so the shirt didn’t show. The word “Trump” appeared blurred on the cap.
