A magazine in Germany has depicted President Donald Trump doing a Nazi salute on its latest cover.

The Hamburg-based publication, Stern Magazine, shows the commander-in-chief draped in an American flag and doing the salute, which is illegal in Germany.

The cover caption on the printed issue reads ‘Sein Kampf,’ translated into English means ‘His Struggle,’ a reference to Adolf Hitler’s antisemitic screed ‘Mein Kampf,’ or ‘My Struggle.’

A sub-caption underneath states: ‘Neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan, Racism: As Donald Trump stirs the hate in America.’

The cover comes as Trump has faced harsh criticism in the US for his recent comments following a deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, which saw 32-year-old Heather Hayer killed after an alleged white supremacist used his vehicle in a car ramming attack that injured 19 others.

Following the event, Trump blamed ‘many sides’ for the violence, causing immediate outrage across the nation with some accusing the President of drawing a parity between neo-Nazis and anti-white supremacist demonstrators.

He later clarified his comments, stating last Monday during a televised event: ‘Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to what we hold dear as Americans.’

But that effort was quickly tampered when in Manhattan during an impromptu news conference he said that there were ‘very fine people’ participating with the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, drawing a swift rebuke from politicians as well as military leaders.
