WNBC-TV reports, a New Jersey man who's been flying Donald Trump's campaign flag in front of his home since February could face up to a $2,000 fine or jail time.

Joe Hornick has been flying Trump's "Make America Great Again" flags outside his home and recently received a ticket citing him for illegally posting political signage more than 30 days before an election.

The New Jersey presidential primary isn't until June 7.

Hornick is ready to face a judge in the case. If he loses the flag fight in court. Hornick is prepared to serve a possible 90 day sentence.

"I'm not taking the flag down, and if I do 90 days in jail, I'll do 90 days in jail," he said.

Sometimes the flags come down without Hornick's assistance. Hornick says, the flags have been ripped down five times so far.

"Let them come, let them rip those flags down because I have a warehouse on alert, and I'll put up a flag every time they tear one down," he said.
