President Obama says Donald Trump has no evidence to back up his complaints about the election.

Arabic billboard: 'Donald Trump: He can’t read this, but he is afraid of it'

A new billboard in Michigan mocks Donald Trump with a sentence in Arabic that reads: “Donald Trump: He can’t read this, but he is afraid of it.”

The board was put up last weekend on an interstate near the entrance to the city of Dearborn. The Chicago-based Nuisance Committee Super PAC — started in part by the Cards Against Humanity game creator Max Temkin — funded the $4,850 billboard through election day.

"We came up with it because we believe that Donald Trump's hateful rhetoric is not based on reality. It's based in fear," Nuisance Committee spokeswoman Melissa Harris told the Detroit Free Press.

She added that the committee believes the Republican candidate's words and his “irrational fear” are driving his anti-immigration message.

Temkin, the co-founder of the super PAC, named the committee as a tribute to his grandfather Ira Weinstein, a prisoner of war held by the Nazis during World War II. The committee has publicly stated that it intended to compare Trump to Adolf Hitler.
