Billboard showing Trump, Cruz kissing goes up in Cleveland ahead of RNC
Planting Peace sends message to GOP
CLEVELAND, OH – A giant billboard of GOP nominee Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is turning heads in Cleveland.
The billboard, paid for by the nonprofit Planting Peace, shows Trump and Cruz locking lips and made its debut in Cleveland just days before the Republican National Convention.
The billboard reads:
"Love Trumps Hate. End Homophobia."
"What Donald, Ted and the Republican platform either fail to realize, or realize and just don't seem to care about, is that their words and actions toward our LGBT family - especially LGBT children - have meaning and impact. LGBT children hear these messages telling them they are nothing but second class citizens and are left feeling somehow broken or 'less than,'" wrote Aaron Jackson, president of Planting Peace, wrote in a blog post on the organization's website.
Planting Peace is a nonprofit "founded for the purpose of spreading peace in a hurting world."
