Famed American artist Jon McNaughton has released an incredible new painting of President Donald Trump — and it falls right in line with the age-old adage, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
In McNaughton’s depiction, President Trump is sitting on a bench with a college student, teaching him how to fish. This perfectly parallels the president’s convictions, in which he wants to end an America where handouts have brought society to rock bottom, hurting many lives and generations.
Here’s the full photo:
Last year, McNaughton painted a picture in which Trump stands alongside the “forgotten men and women” who elected the nation’s 45th president.
Here is that painting:
“Many Americans have felt forgotten by the establishment in Washington. I’m talking about the people who are more interested in themselves and their political careers,” McNaughton said in a video.
In addition, while core groups that supported Trump — blue-collar workers, veterans and current members of the U.S. military, law enforcement officers, and farmers — are represented in the painting, a first glance reveals an interesting addition:
A snake’s head being crushed under the foot of the President.
“I want a President that will crush the enemies of liberty, justice, and American prosperity,” McNaughton explains. “They may have the power to bruise his heel, but he will have the power to crush their head.”
McNaughton said those who voted for Trump knew exactly what they were getting, which is why they voted for him in the first place:
“Last year, we elected President Trump. He expressed by his words and demeanor what Americans wanted. A man who is not going to bow down to Washington or other countries. A man that would not forget the forgotten men and women of this country who elected him.”
Of the “forgotten,” McNaughton asked: “How many veterans have been neglected? How many of our police officers have been marginalized? How many families are suffering because of poor healthcare, limited opportunities, and government intrusion?” he added.
