Description

Inside what appears to be a large frame, is a wheatpasting of a smiling Donald Trump, who is giving a thumbs up. Stenciled next to this image reads "It is what it is-Trump." In large type, next to both of these reads "200,000+ COVID19 Deaths" in red spray paint that has dripped downward in a gruesome fashion. The artist notes on Instagram: "Trump on the US COVID-19 death toll during a July 28th interview with Axios' Jonathan Swan - "It is what it is." Current USA death toll is now over 200,000."
