A sign outside a Maryland elementary school is sparking controversy, after someone used it to post a threat against President Trump.

Montgomery County residents saw the message outside Wood Acres Elementary over the weekend. The message "Ew Trump! Murder his a**" was spelled out inside the marquee in the school's front yard.

Some residents say this kind of behavior has no place in society. "It wouldn't have mattered if it was Trump, Obama, Clinton, Bush. It was a threat and you know, it's something you have young kids right across the street, you don't want them seeing that king of message," said neighbor Andrew Johnson.

School district officials say someone broke into the building where the sign letters were kept, then used them to create the message.
