Hanksy Creates Donald Trump Presidential Campaign Posters

Trump has a new presidential campaign poster on the Lower East Side.
The billionaire real estate magnate, bigot, and Republican presidential
buffoon candidate Donald Trump is now fodder for pun-master Hanksy.
Given the hatred Trump reserves for Mexican immigrants, claiming they’re all criminals and rapists, the prolific street artist decided to provide his services for the campaign. Tongue firmly in cheek.
Wheatpaste campaign imagery was installed on both Allen Street/Canal Street (near the spot Banksy made famous) and around the corner on Grand. Each illustrates a sombrero-wearing Trump saying “You’re hired,” while surrounded by Mexican elements such as tacos, pinadas, and margaritas.
The pithy pasters were also slapped up in Philadelphia.
“I want to be Trump’s Shepard Fairey and save his bigoted campaign,” Hanksy further explained in an email exchange.
It’ll be interesting to see how the street reacts. Especially after seeing that a couple were already violated…
