Portuguese carnival revellers poke fun at Putin, Trump and Kim Jong Un

12 February 2018

Thousands of people in Portugal celebrated the yearly carnival on Sunday. The carnival is best known for its political satire. This year's theme was tides and oceans. A tableau in the town centre boasted the figures of world top leaders. This included German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. U.S. President Donald Trump also appeared with a shark's body. Other floats driven through the town included one carrying Trump sitting on a toilet shaped like the planet earth. Behind him was an angry Kim Jong Un holding a rocket.
