Mexican Magazine Letras Libres Declares Donald Trump an “American Fascist”

The cover features a Hitler mustache.


Throughout this increasingly disturbing election season, a slew of prominent magazines have dedicated its covers to Donald Trump and the real estate magnate’s unlikely rise to the top of the Republican party. But the most brilliant cover may have just arrived from Mexico, where the culture magazine Letras Libres featured a magnified image of the presidential candidate with two simple words, “Fascista Americano.” The description appears to be presented to form the shape of a Hitler mustache:

From the first day of his campaign, Trump has vowed to build a wall along the US-Mexico border to stop Mexican immigrants, who he has called rapists and criminals, from entering the United States.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
