Donald Trump: Art of a Demagogue

20th January 2017

It’s ‘T-Day’ – a day that could likely go down as the most frightening day in history. Donald Trump is being inaugurated as the forty-fifth president of the United States of America.
To mark the day and to forever be on the right side of history, we have a time capsule of the best Trump art from around the world in our new print issue, fittingly, The Art Issue.

The collection is accompanied by Art of a Demagogue, written by our editor-in-chief, Courtney Blackman:
Still surreal, isn’t it? America shocked that world by electing Donald Trump as its forty-fifth president. The thrice-married, proud philandering, father of five has designs on being the patriarch of the free world, after causing a colossal rift in a population of over three hundred and twenty million people.

He has touted his celebrity status as a means to assault people, gone bankrupt multiple times while simultaneously promoting himself as a genius and business mastermind, and (almost) singlehandedly made bullying, racial discrimination and sexism an approved standard. 
Does Trump actually, truly believe The Donald’s rhetoric? Or is his alarming vernacular simply a bullhorn to incite the media and the public?
