What a difference a year makes and this new painting represents just how far we have come since President Trump was sworn into office. Finally, after years of being ignored, we have a leader who listens and cares about the American people. This is what Making America Great Again looks like and it is about damn time.
Here is more from Conservative Tribune:
The past eight months have been truly eye-opening. It has been remarkable to have a president in the Oval Office who treats America’s soldiers with respect, who honors veterans and who genuinely loves this nation.
The contrast with the attitude of the former president has been remarkable. Painter Jon McNaughton thinks so as well, as he made clear in a new painting of President Donald Trump, similar to one he did of former President Barack Obama, but with some major differences.
McNaughton released a painting in 2010 showing Obama surrounded by all the former presidents around the White House, KXNT reported. On a park bench nearby is a “forgotten man,” whom Obama has turned his back on. Underneath Obama’s foot is the United States Constitution.
McNaughton’s new piece looks very similar, only this time Trump is surrounded by various members of his administration like Secretary of Defense James Mattis, other “forgotten” Americans and the forgotten man is being given some water.
Instead of stepping on the Constitution, in this painting Trump is stepping on a snake.
“Last year we elected President Trump. He expressed by his words and demeanor what Americans wanted — a man who was 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,” McNaughton explained in a video about the painting.
