In a tweet, Donald Trump announced that he is straightening out the “Trade with Japan”, that the US President called “one-sided”, with Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo.
To show how he is going to execute this, Trump tweeted out a map of the US complete with “recent major Japanese investments updates” of the different US states. The image comes with the caption, “Prime Minister @AbeShinzo of Japan has been working with me to help balance out the one-sided Trade with Japan. These are some of the investments they are making in our Country-just the beginning!”
The image however, isn’t aesthetically well-designed at all. It contains an assortment of mess containing information, graphics and numbers. It also features cutout images of different products that are invested into the different states such as tractors, SUVs and air-conditioners together with its accompanying text in different colors and sizes without any hierarchy.
According to the New York Times, presidential briefings have changed ever since Trump replaced former president Barack Obama. Obama is known to like policy documents that were “three to six single-spaced pages” but Trump however, prefers a single page document that carries “lots of graphics and maps.”
