Magazine Cover Shows Grotesque Anti-Trump Cartoon


The latest issue of German magazine Der Spiegel was released on Friday and it features President Trump beheading the Statue of Liberty on its cover.

In a flagrant Anti-Trump demonstration over the president’s immigration executive order, the popular German magazine portrayed Trump as a knife-wielding psycho holding the decapitated head of the Statue of Liberty.

The Hill reported that anti-Trump messages are appearing on front pages of publications around the world since announcing the executive order temporarily banning refugees from entering the U.S. if they come from seven Muslim-predominant countries. Many critics contend that the controversial immigrant ban is discriminatory against Muslims and is contrary to our nation’s constitution.

Among Trump’s long list of critics, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) took to Twitter to voice his opinion: “There are tears running down the cheeks of the Statue of Liberty tonight.”

Then, on Friday, The New Yorker published its magazine with a front page showing the torch of the State of Liberty extinguished. One Twitter user even compared the German magazine cover to one released by The New Yorker, while someone else wrote the cover sends the message that “Trump is beheading American democracy.”

The report also states that The Huffington Post featured an upside down Statue of Liberty on its homepage last weekend, and included the headline “Discrimination Nation.”
