(TNS)Â BIG Thanks: A group of Indiana farmers cut a giant ‘thank you’ to POTUS Donald Trump after he reversed a ban on the sale of E15 ethanol gasoline during the summer.
Bruce Buchanan, a farmer who manages 6,000 acres with his son Allen for Buchanan Family Farms in Fowler, Indiana, toldÂ Fox & Friends Sunday that he wanted to find some way to thank the president for allowing year-round E15 sales, so he decided to use a corn field.
HeÂ carvedÂ the message out of 60 acres of corn on Tuesday and Wednesday, which reads, â€œThanks Mr. Trump For E15.â€
â€œWe literally mechanically harvested the corn as we proceeded to spell out the letters in the maze,â€ Buchanan said.
His yuuugeÂ thank you message soon went viral on social media, garnering the attention ofÂ Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue as well as White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Twitter.

The presidentÂ announcedÂ his decision to permit year-round E15 sales during a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on October 9. Previously, there was a government ban on summer sales of the corn-based fuel.
Buchanan said POTUS’ ethanol decision is going to be â€œpretty impactfulâ€ for the farming community.
â€œWe know for a fact that, for the ag economy, income is down and prices are down. What this is going to do for that, we donâ€™t know, and you donâ€™t know, for sure. But we felt it was a pretty impactful thing for our president to do,â€ BuchananÂ toldÂ theÂ Lafayette Journal & Courier.
