An artist/activist concerned than the US is moving towards "dictatorship" has created a roadside billboard in Phoenix, Arizona, depicting US President Donald Trump surrounded by Nazi swastikas and nuclear mushroom clouds that look like clowns.


Los Angeles artist Karen Fiorito said she made the billboard because she felt the country was moving towards "dictatorship."
Along Phoenix's Grande Avenue, the billboard was getting lots of attention from passersby, including one man who called it the "new world order".

The local NBC news affiliate said Fiorito had made a similar billboard in 2004 with former President George W.Bush and other top US officials.


She said she expected to receive negative reaction from Trump supporters and hoped everyone who contributed to placing the billboards were safe.

The NBC news affiliate said the billboard owner, a local patron of the arts, commissioned the sign and that it will stay up for as long as Trump remains in office.
