Someone paid for an Arabic billboard just to troll Donald Trump - and its message is brilliant

The sign reflects the Trump rhetoric that one should fear the 'other'
The sign reflects the Trump rhetoric that one should fear the 'other'

A new billboard has appeared, on the westbound I-94 in Dearborn, Michigan, near Detroit, which reads largely in Arabic and concerns Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The poster declares it was funded by 'The Nuisance Committee', Cards Against Humanity's anti-Trump political action group.

It's unusual that the makers of that particular game want to take down the barrel-torso'd billionaire insult-machine... but anyway.

The billboard was announced with a press release which said it targeted:

Arabic-speaking voters in the Detroit area and encourages others, who don't speak Arabic but are curious about its message, to ask a friend what it says.

If you were interested, the billboard reads:

Donald Trump: He can't read this, but he is afraid of it.

Which is pretty subversive. It of course references Trump's many Islamophobic and racist comments and policies.

The campaign appears to have worked if Twitter is anything to go by:

The billboard's makers also recently used the video game Overwatch to criticise Trump's poor temperament, in a similar campaign in Florida.

Keep up the good work, 'Nuisance Committee'.
