Boston Globe Editorial Board Takes Aim at Donald Trump

Readers of the Boston Globe on Sunday were treated to two front pages on Sunday. One was the standard front page and the other was a product of the editorial board, who created a mock front page for April 9, 2017 and imagined a Donald Trump presidency.

The front page depicts Trump calling on Congress to fund Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s efforts to increase deportations with the bold headline of “Deportations to Begin.” The satirical stories written also include a mentioning of Fox News’s Megyn Kelly and say that she has been forced to report from a bar because of being on a White House blacklist. Some of the stories are also more comical, such as Yellowstone National Park being renamed after Trump.

The opinion page also imagines the US markets crashing after Trump gets into trade wars with China and Mexico and causes a diplomatic crisis with China after Trump names his dog after Chinese First Lady Peng Liyuan.

The editorial board wrote that the front page “is an exercise in taking a man at his word. And his vision of America promises to be as appalling in real life as it is in black and white on the page.”

Donald Trump attacked the newspaper on Sunday, calling them worthless and saying that the story was “dishonest.”
