While in Janesville, Wisc., for a pro-Trump gathering, one man named Ken E. Nwadike Jr. adorned a shirt and sign that reads “Free Hugs,” but when he approached a few Trump supporters, they were rather cold toward Nwadike, amNewYork reports. One person even swiftly said, “I don’t want any drugs” before he was able to explain the premise behind the campaign, “Make America LOVE Again.” In an interview with the site, Nwadike said, “I figured there was going to be a lot of hate.”

While attending Sanders’ rally in San Diego, Calif., with the same attire and sign, Nwadike received a different reaction, one that he initially sought out since the launch of the “Free Hugs Project.” Per their website, the initiative seeks to spark a “movement to spread love, inspire change, and raise awareness of social issues.”
