'MAGA' sign seen in front of train; TriMet investigating

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- TriMet is conducting an internal investigation after pictures of a "MAGA" sign appeared iin the front window of a MAX Train on Monday and circulated on social media.

TriMet spokeswoman Roberta Altstadt said the sign has since been removed. She also didn't explicitly say how the sign got there or who put it there. 

Altstadt added: "While TriMet values freedom of speech, we do have a policy that employees cannot be involved in political activity while on the job."

MAGA is an acronym for "Make America Great Again," a slogan coined by President Donald Trump during his 2016 election campaign.
