Nagler was even willing to put up $5,000 so Max could buy the web domain “makeamericagreatagain.com” on eBay last month.

The mixed messages may be because the site is not owned by Trump or his campaign. Rosa Max, a 44-year-old Silver Lake resident, bought the website last month and was trying to use it to support an urban farming project in Los Angeles. She said she’s been contacted by Trump supporters who are confused by the website.
“I ask, ‘Did you see the city farm project? Would you support that?’ Then they hang up,” she said.
Max is a self-described “wannabe environmentalist” and proud naturalized citizen from the Netherlands who said she doesn’t know who she’ll vote for on Tuesday. Her resume lists more careers than most people have in a lifetime, including one as an entrepreneur spraying sunblock on beachgoers in southern Spain and, more recently, beekeeping and raising sheep. Her goal is to “make America green again” by piloting an urban farm in Silver Lake and expanding it to other cities, among other ideas.
When Max discovered that the makeamericagreatagain.com domain was for sale, she thought she could cash in on the site’s popularity to drive traffic and funds to her own project. “I thought, ‘I need immediate traffic. I need hits. I need as many people to see the project as possible,’” Max said.
