KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — Ahead of Vice President Mike Pence's Latinos for Trump rally in central Florida, state Democrats have paid for a billboard showing an image of the president tossing paper towels at a Puerto Rican church after the island was devastated by Hurricane Maria.

The Florida Democratic Party unveiled the billboard Monday in Kissimmee, a city outside Orlando with a large Puerto Rican population, including many who came to central Florida after the 2017 hurricane.

Above the image of President Donald Trump tossing the paper towels into a crowd, are the words “Prohibido Olvidar,” or “Never Forget” in English. Critics at the time said the president's tossing of the paper towels showed a lack of sensitivity to the devastation on the island.

Pence is the featured speaker at a Latinos for Trump rally being held in Kissimmee on Thursday. The vice president and his wife also are attending a Keep American Great rally in Tampa that day.

2. Hope it includes a li'l text at the bottom

reminding ALL Americans that Puerto Rico is an American territory and not part of Mexico or Europe or China or whatever knuckledraggers may think, and that its people--American citizens--are still suffering the aftermath of Maria while Puppet Sharpie golfs.

3. Perfect.

Trump is a day trader. Let his past actions come back to bite his butt in 2020.

4. Looks like cheap, off brand paper towels.

Probably the kind used at his hotels.
