Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s campaign is attacking Donald Trump with a Snapchat geofilter, available to the app’s users at the presumptive GOP nominee’s rally.

The filter shows a Trump quote from 2006, when he said: “I sort of hope [a housing crash] happens because then people like me would go in and buy.”

The Snapchat filter is available for users near the Anaheim Convention Center to add to their photos between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, where Trump is holding a rally.

The quote is seen on a yellow background with a gold frame surrounding it.

{mosads}Clinton has recently been attacking Trump over the quote.

“He actually said he was hoping for the crash that caused hard-working families in California and across America to lose their jobs,” Clinton said at a campaign event outside Los Angeles, according to The Wall Street Journal. “All because he thought he could take advantage of it to make some money for himself.”

“How cruel do you have to be to actually root for a crisis that would devastate millions of families, all to pad your own pockets?” Clinton added on Tuesday afternoon in one of a series of tweets. “We need a president who’s fighting to raise incomes for all Americans, not one who tries to profit at their expense.”

Clinton also released a campaign ad noting millions of Americans lost their homes and jobs after the housing market crash in 2008.

The ad included the audio of Trump’s 2006 quote.
