Dearborn - A billboard written in Arabic and located along a Michigan interstate near an Arab-American community is calling Donald Trump "afraid".

The Detroit Free Press reports the sign translates into English as, "Donald Trump, he can't read this, but he is afraid of it."

The sign went up last weekend and the Free Press reports it's funded by the Nuisance Committee super PAC, which was started by the creator of the Cards Against Humanity card game.

A spokesperson for Nuisance Committee tells the newspaper it picked Dearborn because of its high percentage of Arab Americans in a swing state.

Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States earlier this year. He's now calling for an "extreme vetting" of people entering the country.
