The activist was disappointed with the results of Trump’s meeting with Putin and bought advertising for a week.
In the city of Grand Jaxhen, Colorado, a billboard appeared with the name of the Republican Party of the United States, which is compared with the Soviet Union. He was rented by an American activist and writer Anne Landman.
On the red background there is an abbreviation of the nickname of Republicans – GOP or Grand Old Party (“The Great Old Party”). The second letter is replaced by the USSR symbol with a sickle and a hammer.
Landman said she paid $ 265 of her own money for renting a billboard for a week. According to the activist, she received another $ 1,696 in donations and plans to buy advertising on billboards in two other places.
According to Landman, the Republican Party has become a “Donald Trump party”, which “flirts with authoritarian dictators who ignore human rights.” The activist noted that the indignation of the US president only increased after his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki: “He openly contradicted his own intelligence and the very next day he justified himself.” According to her, members of the Republican Party from which Trump was elected are not able to resist him and therefore “make many think that they are complicit in Putin’s attempts to undermine American democracy.”
