‘Just the Beginning’: Trump Painter Jon McNaughton Looks Toward 2021, Shares Message of Hope

Traditional art lovers started hearing the name Jon McNaughton a lot more often in 2019, after his cheeky painting of President Trump “Crossing the Swamp” went viral on Twitter. It portrays Trump in a boat, navigating an allegorical swamp (Washington D.C.) in a tongue-in-cheek homage to the painting of “George Washington Crossing the Delaware,” which hangs in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.“That one really hit a nerve,” McNaughton jokingly told The Epoch Times in a Zoom call, adding that those kinds of paintings get him noticed the most.
