LAKEWOOD, OH  – It says it right here in black and white.

The t-shirt reads, “Greetings from Cleveland….It’s gonna be a riot” …with the July dates for the Republican national convention printed underneath.

But could it promote the same violence seen last month when clashes between Donald Trump protestors and supporters shutdown a planned rally in Chicago last month?

There were also rising tensions at the Republican candidate’s stump in Cleveland the following day.

The man behind the t-shirt is Colin Dussault of Lakewood and he says the idea happened organically.

Dussault says, “On the 25th of March, I created the design and posted it on Facebook and in like 45 minutes, I had like 60 people who wanted them.”

And those numbers continue to rise. But at what cost?

Dussault is now answering to critics who feel this printed message could very well become reality this summer.

“Truly, my answer is I’m not a Republican, a Democrat, a Conservative, a Liberal, I’m an opportunist, um, I’m a capitalist, I certainly hope there’s no trouble,” said Dussault.
