‘America is afraid’ to put up this Trump billboard, says artist, after 30 failed attempts, here’s what happened

A busy Mexican highway is adorned with a billboard that depicts President Donald Trump as an alien intruder.

Created by Chicago-based artist Mitch O’Connell, the eye-catching billboard features “a caricature of Trump with a blue and red fleshless face beneath his blond hair,” Reuters reported.

The billboard also features the president’s campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again.”

Which makes for an odd message for Mexicans, but there’s a reason behind that.

“America is afraid to put up this tongue-in-cheek billboard,” O’Connell told Reuters. “Then Mexico came to mind because Trump started out his campaign by being cruel and mean to everyone in Mexico.”

Reuters noted that O’Connell failed in 30 or so attempts to pitch the billboard in various U.S. cities.

The artist set up a GoFundMe page earlier this year in support of the effort, raising about $3,ooo, but he said no U.S. company  “wanted to touch it because it’s political.”
