Trump as Comrade Napoleon, the President Pig from Animal Farm by Orwell

I just looked up the quote below and came across a great book cover illustration that reminded me of Trump (at bottom of this message). Now I will need to go and re-read Animal Farm by George Orwell again because I think Trump reminds me of Our Leader, Comrade Napoleon, Father of All Animals, Terror of Mankind, Protector of the Sheep-fold, Ducklings' Friend.

As Wikipedia relates:
He is described as "a large, rather fierce-looking Berkshire boar" who is "not much of a talker" and has "a reputation for getting his own way". While he is at first a common farm pig, he gets rid of Snowball, another pig, who is his rival for power, and then takes advantage of the animals' uprising against their masters to eventually become the tyrannical "President" of Animal Farm, which he turns into a dictatorship.

Remember "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others".

I would love to see a caricaturist portray Trump as a pig on the cover of Animal Farm. Must include double chins and extra long tie.
