Donald Trump is perceived as a dangerous man, but his actions solidify that. A giant billboard sign in Arizona is drawing a lot of attention. It features Trump’s face surrounded by dollar-sign swastikas and nuclear mushroom clouds.
The billboard got multiple reactions from different people. But the owner, Beatrice Moore, says that it’ll stay up as long as Trump is president.
The California-based artist Karen Fiorito says she’s received death threats since the billboard went up.
“I think a lot of people are feeling this way and I’m just trying to express what I think is on a lot of people’s minds these days,” she told 12 News. “Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction.”
Some people did think the sign went too far, even people who oppose Trump.
“It’s pretty drastic, I thought swastikas were very crude and violent,” neighbor Jeff Whitman told AZ Family.com.
“Maybe put some thumbs down up there around Trump or something but I don’t like waking up to the Nazi signs,” he told Arizona Central.
On the back of the billboard, there’s another sign that reads, “unity” both in English and in sign language.
One passerby thought it was great to have the sign up, particularly the front and back contrast.
“I think that it’s a wonderful expression of the two sides of the opinions of what is going on and how we can move forward,” she told Arizona Central.
Jeremy Bacpac also supported the imagery.
“It’s fantastic. I think this is what artists are supposed to do, make statements, whether you agree or not, it’s a statement,” she told ABC 15.
