The Economist has declared on its front page that President Donald Trump “poses the biggest danger to the world” next year.
The weekly British newspaper, which is partly owned by the Rothschild family, has made Trump the central feature for its upcoming November publication.
Puck Senior Correspondent Dylan Byers shared the image of the Economist’s front page.
The cover for the paper states: “90-Page Guide to the coming year.”
The front page features an image of the Earth being engulfed by the 45th president’s silhouette.
NEW: The Economist’s annual “World Ahead” guide identifies Donald Trump as the biggest global danger of 2024.

The corresponding article continues by raising the alarm about the “danger” of Trump’s possible re-election in 2024.
Its headline states, “Donald Trump poses the biggest danger to the world in 2024.”
The text of the article warns readers about how “perilous” a Trump second term would be.
“A shadow looms over the world,” the alarmist article claims.
“In this week’s edition, we publish The World Ahead 2024, our 38th annual predictive guide to the coming year, and in all that time no single person has ever eclipsed our analysis as much as Donald Trump eclipses 2024.
“That a Trump victory next November is a coin-toss probability is beginning to sink in.”
It continues by noting Trump’s formidable polling which has him ahead of Democrat President Joe Biden in several swing states.
Apparently, the Economist believes it would be a bad thing if Biden is defeated by Trump.
“For decades Democrats have relied on support among black and Hispanic voters, but a meaningful number are abandoning the party,” the article continues.
“In the next 12 months, a stumble by either candidate could determine the race—and thus upend the world.
“This is a perilous moment for a man like Mr. Trump to be back knocking on the door of the Oval Office.
“Democracy is in trouble at home.
“Mr Trump’s claim to have won the election in 2020 was more than a lie: it was a cynical bet that he could manipulate and intimidate his compatriots, and it has worked.”
“A second Trump term would be a watershed in a way the first was not,” the article concludes.
“Victory would confirm his most destructive instincts about power.
“His plans would encounter less resistance.
“And because America will have voted him in while knowing the worst, its moral authority would decline.”
Social media users cited the cover and corresponding article as further proof that the corporate media will devolve into “unmitigated hysteria” over Trump’s 2024 campaign.
The Blaze host Auron MacIntyre posted on Twitter/X:
“You thought the media were deranged in 2016, you thought they were completely unhinged in 2020, but my friend there are no words for the sheer unmitigated hysteria that will be 2024.”
The Daily Wire editor Brent Scher blasted the outlet for overlooking America’s global enemies in highlighting Trump.
He posted: “Not Hamas, not Xi, not Putin…”
American Moment president Surabh Sharma commented: “Man, these people are such babies.”
Popular conservative influencer “Comfortably Smug” said: “Honestly sad what’s become of this publication.”
National Review senior writer Dan McLaughlin used the piece to blast President Biden, stating:
“This is another way of saying that the current president of the United States is too small to meet the moment.”
Citizens for Renewing America executive director Wade Miller commented:
“The Economist remains an unserious publication.”
