Artist Jon McNaughton has unveiled its latest painting of US president Donald Trump.
The artwork showcased Trump seated and praying, while other historical figures gathered around him. Titled Legacy of Hope, the figures include former presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, alongside Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass. Some of the known individuals even reached out and placed their hand on Trump’s shoulder, as he gazed down with his palms placed together.
McNaughton explained that his painting was inspired by a photo showing “Diamond and Silk,” the sisters who have expressed their support for Trump, and televangelist Paula White, praying over him in the Oval Office.
The art piece, however, spurred jokes on Twitter, with many users making their own edits to the piece.
“Much improved! Now I must go back to work!” LynSanity tweeted, together with an altered photo of Trump now with Goya beans lined up in front of him. PinkPurpleBlue decided to replace the figures with that of Vladimir Putin, the Joker, Darth Vader and Kim Jong-un and branding it as “Legacy of Joke.”

Ive got a theory... In years to come, we will discover Jon McNaughton has been playing out one of the greatest "art heists" of our time, an art world Sacha Baron Cohen, grifting the entire right-wing base & selling them prints that appeal to their dumbest instincts. pic.twitter.com/zRQTbzqjpO— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) July 26, 2020
