‘Boston Globe’ Runs Fake Front Page Detailing A Donald Trump World : The Two-Way : NPR

The Boston Globe is turning heads today. They’ve just published a fake front page from the future that details the kind of world a President Donald Trump would usher in.

 

The news from April 9, 2017, includes fake stories about a market crash triggered by a trade war, the beginning of mass deportations and a story about the military refusing the orders of its civilian leadership.

 

The editorial page writes: “[Trump’s] vision of America promises to be as appalling in real life as it is in black and white on the page. It is a vision that demands an active and engaged opposition. It requires an opposition as focused on denying Trump the White House as the candidate is flippant and reckless about securing it.”

 

She said they had some fun along the way, but they also reported this project out. They used Trump’s tweets and his policy papers to inform the stories on the page.
