2. I agree....Great Toon, thanks for posting...........but............

To know the significance you need to know the source of the idea...I will find a link

Here is a link to the original tank picture..

https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=&imgrefurl=https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Man&h=218&w=330&tbnid=JcsLeY3pnh08RM:&tbnh=160&tbnw=242&usg=__rGqS-aectPRxoL8NoUoVkDlQzvI%3D&vet=10ahUKEwi29KyvwpfZAhUFzoMKHX-UB9QQ9QEIKjAA..i&docid=bCv21D1FQLzmBM&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi29KyvwpfZAhUFzoMKHX-UB9QQ9QEIKjAA

Here is a description ............of what happened (from Wikipedia)


Tank Man (also known as the Unknown Protester or Unknown Rebel) is the nickname of an unidentified man who stood in front of a column of tanks on June 5, 1989, the morning after the Chinese military had suppressed the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by force.

Therefore, there is significance to the Statue of Liberty standing in front of Trumps Tanks..stopping them.(there will be no parade, and no march!!!!)

.just like this Unknown Protester stopped the tanks in 1989...(no use of tanks on protesters)
