A billboard with the slogan 'Make America White Again' sparks outrage nationwide.

U.S. House candidate Rick Tyler of Tennessee is facing a backlash for putting up the billboard. He is running as an independent for Tennessee's third district. The billboard was inspired by Donald Trump's 'Make America Great Again' slogan.

Tyler isn't the least bit bothered by the outrage. He says America needs to go back to the 1960s, 'Leave It To Beaver' era when he claims there were no violent crimes, break-ins, or mass immigration.

He defended the billboard saying he believed a lot of people agreed with him. Tyler says he has nothing against people of color.

Due to the backlash, the billboard was taken down.
