Cartoon by Philip Ytournel
Last year, in October, Donald Trump spoke in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and released a plan for his first 100 days in office.
This plan outlined three main areas of focus:
1. Cleaning up Washington, including imposing term limits on Congress
2. Protecting American workers
3. Restoring rule of law
Like it or not, US President Donald Trump‘s decision affected not only America, but also the world. Allow us to highlight the impact of his presidency in a cartoon. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a cartoon is at least worth a million.
Society for News Design and the Danish newspaper Politiken are currently inviting cartoonists from all over the globe to submit entries that can answer the following question: “How did Donald Trump manage his first 100 days as president?”
