A construction worker in Vancouver cleverly trolled Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump this week, flying a Mexican flag from the roof of the still-under-construction Trump Tower in the Canadian city.

The flag was hung by Mexican-Canadian worker Diego Reyna, reports the CBC. Reyna said that he had heard the comments Trump has made against Mexicans, particularly Mexican immigrants to the United States, and that he hung the flag “just to show that he is benefiting from us and that we are working hard on his projects and that we are not all criminals.”

Trump has made several disparaging comments about Mexicans during his campaign, starting with his campaign announcement last year where he said that any people crossing the border illegally were “rapists.”

Since then he has built much of his support on a starkly anti-immigrant stance, including his plans to build a wall along the US-Mexico border. He has not announced plans for a similar wall at the Canadian border.
