PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — An art teacher at a Florida college is putting his homemade, airbrushed anti-Donald Trump T-shirts on display in advance of the president's upcoming rally.

The Pensacola News Journal reports Douglas Reiser has worn the handcrafted shirts as a peaceful protest against Trump since the 2016 election. Now they are hanging in the Pensacola State College art department, each adorned with a small gold plaque featuring quotes from Trump.

The president has a rally scheduled in Pensacola on Friday.

Despite his views, Reiser says he registered for a rally ticket and doesn't plan to protest.

His exhibit will remain intact until Jan. 12 as part of the Art Faculty and Staff Exhibition.

The campaign-style shirts contain not-so-subtle slogans such as "WTF? 2016," ''Unapologetic Racist Enabler 2017," and "The Emperor Has No Clothes 2017."
