This anti-Trump billboard has a lot of people angry, and for a good reason! The billboard shows a picture of Trump with mushroom clouds behind him and dollar signs that resemble swastikas. The artist stands by her work but for those who live near the sign, they have had to resort to not looking out their windows.
Jeff Whiteman is one of those people and what he had to say sums it up pretty well:
“I don’t necessarily agree with the leader of our country and all the things going on, but I would not disrespect him or any leader.”
The billboard stands on the 1000 block of Grand Avenue, and is reportedly the work of a female artist named Karen Fiorito.
“I got the opportunity to have a platform to say something, and I took that opportunity, and I take full responsibility for it,” said Fiorito. She said the Limited Liability Corporation, an organization in Phoenix that supports the arts, gave her a platform to make a statement about Trump.
The billboard contains a picture of Donald Trump, with mushroom clouds in the background, and dollar signs that bear some resemblance to the swastika on each side. On the other side of the same billboard, however, is a billboard containing sign language that reads “unity”.
According to the artist, there is a lot to the billboard, and people can interpret it how they want. On Friday, people expressed mixed emotions about it, in the area where the billboard was put up.
