A year before Donald Trump became president, an editorial cartoonist for the Tulsa World pictured Trump standing at the foot of Mount Rushmore, critiquing his fresh-carved likeness on the mountain alongside Abe Lincoln.
“Make me thinner and lose the other guys,” the caricature of Trump says to a man in a hard hat. The cartoon served as a critique of Trump’s perceived ego and sky-high ambitions.
But after President Trump was sworn in, he relayed his dream of actually being carved on the mountain, according to South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem.
