Trump’s period as US president prompted a number of designers to create work related to him, including Cuban-American artist Edel Rodriguez, who made a “You’re fired” graphic after Trump lost the 2020 election to current US president Joe Biden.

Biden also began his time in office by revoking Trump’s executive order that required new buildings to be constructed in a classical style.
