ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: An artist/activist concerned that the U.S. is moving towards "dictatorship" has created a roadside billboard in Phoenix, Arizona, depicting U.S. President Donald Trump surrounded by imagery that resembles swastikas and nuclear mushroom clouds. 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 residents. "We have a leader of our country and we should respect him, whether we agree with him or not," said Jeff Whiteman. Media reports say 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.
