German weekly magazine Der Spiegel depicted Donald Trump beheading the Statue of Liberty with the caption “America First”, causing some controversy. The artist, Edel Rodriguez, is a Cuban refugee who came to the Unites States in 1980 told The Washington Post: “It’s a beheading of democracy, a beheading of a sacred symbol.”
Germany, like most countries, have become disheartened with America since the election of Donald Trump He continues to assault nearly every American allied country while propping up hostile Governments, like Russian for example.
The cover sparked debate on social media, Graf Lambsdorff, a member of Germany’s Free Democrats (FDP) and vice president of the European Parliament, described it as “tasteless”. However, many of the posts found it to be an accurate representation of how Mr. Trump’s first two weeks as President has been.
