German magazine defends cover showing Trump beheading Statue of Liberty


The editor-in-chief of Der Spiegel on Sunday said a front cover illustration of U.S. President Donald Trump beheading the Statue of Liberty, which split opinion at home and abroad, was a response by the German magazine to threats against democracy.

Published on Saturday, the cover depicts a cartoon figure of Trump with a bloodied knife in one hand and the statue’s head, dripping with blood, in the other. It carries the caption: “America First”.

It followed a series of attacks on Berlin’s policies by Trump and his aides that have marked a rapid deterioration in German relations with the United States.
