ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Some minority artists and activists are satirizing the “Make America Great Again” slogan of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and using their parodies to make statements.

A Navajo artist Vanessa Bowen of New Mexico has created a hat that touts “Make America Native Again.” A Mexican-American activist in Brooklyn, New York, is selling a cap with the words “Make America Mexico Again.”

Bowen says she developed the hat because she believes Trump’s slogan speaks of a time when whites excluded minorities.

Jeronimo Saldana says he starting selling “Make American Mexico Again” after seeing a post online and thought it was a good response to Trump’s immigration ideas.

But Trump supporter and celebrity makeup artist Christopher “Tru” Trujillo says all these “cute” counter-slogans will only help the billionaire businessman.
