We purchased Donald Trump’s actual Iowa campaign bus when it was put up for sale on Craigslist in Des Moines. He used this bus at the Iowa State Fair and throughout Iowa. We have recast it as the ‘T.RUMP Bus’ and it is now an anti-Trump rolling art project. We have crisscrossed the country fighting back against The Donald’s outrageous behavior.
The T.RUMP Bus uses the bizarre realities of Donald Trump’s bullying presidential campaign to explore important questions about American society today. The bus is a great platform for responding to Trump’s daily belligerence, whether it be racial, religious, sexist, or his teasing of a handicapped reporter.
We love working with the bus. It’s a real classic. Ironically, the bus falls far short of what you’d expect the gaudy casino mogul’s campaign bus to look like. The bus has over a million miles. It’s on its third engine and third transmission. And it doesn’t go faster than 50 mph so driving it around the US is quite an experience. Buying, moving, and operating the bus has been expensive.
As a large mobile art project, the T.RUMP Bus provokes Mr. Trump’s accountability. It also helps the public vent frustration about the damage he is inflicting upon the America civic landscape.
