She also told KSAZ-TV she did not regret the billboard, saying: "I got the opportunity to have a platform to say something and I took that opportunity and I take full responsibly for it".

On the other side of the same billboard is one showing five fists forming sign language letters with the word "unity" beneath them.

Both Moore, who commissioned the work, and the artist of the Donald Trump billboard in Phoenix, Arizona, Fiorito, have said they hope people will express their opinions in a safe way and that no harm will come to anyone. "You're creating a dialogue with the public". Moore said it would remain up as long as Trump is president.

The president is flanked by mushroom clouds and swastikas configured like dollar signs.

Fiorito added that this is not the first time she has been threatened over her artwork and had created a billboard in 2004, attacking President George W. Bush's re-election and calling him a "liar". "Things have gotten a lot more escalated now", she said.

"I'm very frustrated like I think a lot of people are, and I don't think we feel our voices are being heard", she said.

"Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction", said Fiorito.

After the billboard was displayed a couple of days ago, the artist revealed that she received death threats.
