Some people feel that origami shouldn’t mix with politics or religion, but we believe that like any art-form, there should be no barriers to how you express yourself through origami. If easily offended or right-wing, please navigate elsewhere! People may not a like a point of view but satire is as old as the hills.
With that in mind, this page will be a gathering point for origami designs related to the POTUS, who is rapidly proving every bit as thin-skinned, egotistical, sexist, right-wing, dangerous and the polar opposite of what a politican should be.
Your submissions are eagerly awaited!

Here is a print-out-and-fold wall flag with which to make your own Mexican Wall. If you voted for Trump (ie. this design is too complex), please refer to the “Simple Mexican Wall” option.
Please send in photos of your attempts to fold the longest wall! It’s gonna be huge!
The Trump Riddle
There is a long and (largely) undocumented history of a puzzle that shows 4 pigs, which can be folded to reveal “one large pig” in the form of the head of a fascist dictator, such as Hitler and Stalin. Even earlier than that, King Louis XVIII was the subject of a similar folded puzzle. (check out an article on the subject) Whilst this biting satire didn’t shorten the war, it allowed the common people to poke fun at hate figures…
