‘The Donald’ is a muse for Trump-loving Albanian painter

Wielding a weapon made of dollar bills, tackling Barack Obama, challenging George Soros to an arm wrestle — Donald Trump is the hero of a Tirana art show by an Albanian painter who considers the US president an “idol.”

The 61-year-old artist, Avni Delvina, says the work is his response to international media’s broadly negative reaction to the Republican president’s unorthodox approach to politics.

“It is the product of two years of work from my strong anger about the reactionary attack on Trump,” Delvina told AFP, describing the former reality TV star and real estate tycoon as a “free spirit.”
