Former United States President Donald Trump was in attendance at this weekend’s rivalry showdown between the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Clemson Tigers, but he wasn’t exactly given a warm welcome by some of the billboards in South Carolina.
As reported by the CBS local news affiliate WSBT, two billboards in Columbia, South Carolina gave Donald Trump a rather brutal welcome to the city, calling out the former president for his loss in the election as well as the election fraud crimes that he is currently facing in federal court.
The signs, which were on digital billboards in the city, read as follows: “You lost. You’re guilty. Welcome to Columbia, Donald.”

An attorney by the name of Jay Bender seems to have taken credit for creating these billboards, with a line reading, “Sponsored by league of radical leftist vermin – Jay Bender Instigator.”
Trump is currently facing 91 felony counts in four different states across the United States as a result of his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. If convicted, he could face prison time.
The former president is also facing a $250 million civil fraud trial in New York following allegations that he artificially inflated the value of his properties and assets in order to receive more favorable loan and insurance rates.
