Mike’s Tire, located in Belmont County Bethesda, recently erected a sign outside its shop front along North 26 Road that reads, ‘White lives matter, who else will pay for welfare’. The sign, which concludes with ‘Trump 2020’, has caused a stir among members of the local community who are pleading with the owner to take it down and apologize.
