“This is a Trump card-the central area, it is so pro-Trump, that I feel like someone in this area to say, ‘Hey, we’re not all pro-Trump,'” Reiser told the Pensacola News Journal.

Next to each t-shirt is a plaque with quotes from Trump that Reiser found interesting, with blank space available for the “future unexplained quotations,” he said.

A Twitter account that appeared to have been set by Reiser shows photos of the exhibition.

A “free speech zone” is also a book that you can sign. Reiser told the Pensacola News Journal that it “is actually a platform for free speech, for both sides.”

“Trump sold us his address and suckers bought it,” reads one message.

“ANTIFA = ISIS/Nazis,” says another.

Reiser says his boss and the director encouraged the installation, but he has gotten some blowback from his students.

President Trump will be a rally Friday at the 10,000-seat Pensacola Bay Center, Reiser plans to take part in one of his shirts.

The county in which Pensacola is a vote for Trump over Hillary Clinton by a total of 88,808 to 57,461 votes.
