Donald Trump Cartoon Contest Held In Iran With Cash Prize

An Iranian cartoonist has taken the top prize for a "Trumpism" exhibition aimed at mocking the U.S. president. One entry showed Trump giving a Nazi salute while another showed the president drawing a Hitler moustache on the statue of liberty.

The first-prize victor, who received a $1,500 award, depicted President Trump drooling on books while sporting a jacket made of dollar bills, The Associated Press reported Monday.

A Donald Trump cartoon contest was held in Tehran, Iran with a $1,500 prize for first place.

"The mass participation of the worldwide cartoonists in the contest proclaims the legitimacy of our logic", added Shojaei-Tabatabai who was an organizer of the global Holocaust Cartoon Contest in Iran.

The same organizers of the event held a controversial Holocaust cartoon contest a year ago, which denounced what they claim is Western double standards on free speech.

The UN's refugee agency also weighed in, warning that Italy can not continue absorbing tens of thousands of migrants on its own. Austria has border checks with Hungary and Slovenia, but in other areas it adheres to the European Unon open borders system.

"This contest considers Trump as a symbol of U.S. capitalism and hegemony that many intellectuals compare with Nazism", one of the organisers of the event, Masud Shojaei-Tabatabai, said.

"This contest considers Trump as a symbol of USA capitalism and hegemony that many intellectuals compare with Nazism", Shojaei-Tabatabai said. His entry was Trump drooling with a dollar-bill jacket on.

"I wanted to show Trump while trampling symbols of culture", Asadi told the AP. Trump and violence against women, media as well as building walls were among themes of the contest. "Many believe his remarks are similar to Hitler".

Opened on Monday, the exhibition includes works of some 1,614 Iranian and foreign participants from 74 countries, including four works from American cartoonists, two of which two were awarded.

American Robert Jones Clayton's cartoon shows the cover photo of two copies of Time magazine, one with Trump's picture and the other with Adolf Hitler.
