Murals of Trump on Israeli barrier walls
Two murals showing an oversized President Donald Trump have appeared on Israel’s West Bank separation barrier, just yards from where the elusive artist Banksy decorated a hotel earlier this year.
The new drawings popped up on the edge of Bethlehem, the Palestinian city where the barrier consists of a wall of towering slabs of concrete.
In one scene, Trump is hugging and kissing a real Israeli army watchtower built into the wall, as his left arm reaches around the tower. Pink hearts flutter from Trump’s mouth.
In another drawing, Trump is depicted wearing a yarmulke and placing his hand on a wall — a scene taken from the U.S. president’s May visit to Jerusalem’s Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray. A cartoon “thought bubble” next to him says, “I’m going to build you a brother,” a possible reference to Trump’s plans to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
