She tweeted photos of herself and pointed out that no one noticed her shirt said she was against Trump.
Her tweet went viral, garnering over 70,000 retweets as of Sunday evening.

The Republican nominee has received significant criticism for his rhetoric about minorities throughout the election cycle. When Donald Trump declared his candidacy in June 2015, he said many Mexican immigrants are "rapists" and other criminals.
In the final presidential debate on Wednesday, Trump used the phrase "bad hombres" when he spoke of securing the border.
