Another controversial billboard has appeared in Amarillo, this time in support of President Trump’s efforts to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

As KVII reports, the electronic billboard, which reads simply “WeFundTheWall.com” and features a picture of President Trump giving a thumbs up, is located on the north side of I-40 across from Westgate Mall.

Last week, the Texas Panhandle was abuzz about a billboard. The sign didn’t mince words, simply asking “LIBERALS" to "please continue on I-40 until you have left our Great State of Texas.”

In an editorial in The Amarillo Globe-News, Jon Mark Beilue called the sign, “childish and immature, noting that the sign only “add[ed] to the division in the country.”

After the backlash, the sign was promptly taken down.
