Did someone say receipts?
With the help of Parkland survivor and gun control activist David Hogg, a GoFundMe raised $9,760 to put Donald Trump's tweets bashing Ted Cruz up on a billboard in Texas.
The GoFundMe, organized by political group USA Latinx, raised the money in less than 24 hours. The campaign was a response to Trump endorsing Cruz through Twitter. On Friday, the president announced a "major rally" that would take place in "the biggest stadium in Texas we can find."
"As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement," Trump tweeted, completely ignoring the times he's called the Texas senator "Lyin' Ted" and an "another all talk, no action pol."
The GoFundMe's organizers want to remind Texas voters exactly what the president thinks of the GOP candidate.
On Friday, Hogg retweeted one of Trump's infamous Twitter rants railing against Cruz and asked, "Can someone in Texas get this on a billboard?"

That day, the GoFundMe was up and running. According to the description, the organizers are planning to "display the president's own words about Cruz from 2016 on a mobile billboard to remind Texans of the truth."

The GoFundMe also had the help of Claude Taylor, chairmand of Mad Dog PAC. According to The Hill, the PAC focuses on raising money for political ads, and was recently behind the "Impeachment Now" billboard that went up near Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.
Hogg, meanwhile, is trying to decide which Trump tweet to put up.

There are a handful of damning screenshots of Trump insulting Cruz, which doesn't exactly look good for the incumbent senator.
"So many wonderful selections to choose from," Hogg tweeted. "Thank you @POTUS."
