The Economist’s New Cover Brutally Slams President Trump And His White Supremacy

By Collin Gossel

The cover of this week's Economist features President Trump, something that would normally thrill him. He might not be as pleased, however, with this artist's take on his Presidency. The cover depicts President Trump using a Ku Klux Klan hood as a megaphone, and is meant to accompany their cover story, "Donald Trump has no grasp of what it means to be president."

The magazine will be released on Saturday, a week after the deadly rallies in Charlottesville. Politicians on both sides of the aisle have criticized Trump's response to the tragedy. On the day of the protests, Trump gave a statement that criticized violence "on both sides," failing to condemn white supremacist groups like the KKK and the so-called "alt-right."
