British newspaper The Economist depicted former President Trump as the “biggest danger to the world” in 2024 in their latest cover.
The Economist’s upcoming November publication, a “90-Page Guide to the coming year,” features an image of the earth engulfed by Trump’s silhouette.
The article’s headline is “Donald Trump poses the biggest danger to the world in 2024.”
The text of the article, which is laughable, warns about how “perilous” a Trump second term would be.
“A shadow looms over the world. 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,” the article stated.
“For decades Democrats have relied on support among Black and Hispanic voters, but a meaningful number are abandoning the party. 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.”

Axios reported on the article:
Why it matters: The respected 180-year-old British newspaper said a “second Trump term would be a watershed in a way the first was not” and the “fate of the world” will depend on the ballots of “tens of thousands of voters in just a handful of states” in the 2024 presidential election.
Details: The Economist said in its annual “World Ahead” guide Thursday that another four years of Trump in the White House would be “more damaging” than his previous term.
“China and its friends would rejoice over the evidence that American democracy is dysfunctional” and Beijing “could easily miscalculate over Taiwan, with catastrophic consequences.”
And Russian President Vladimir Putin “would have an incentive to fight on in Ukraine and to pick off former Soviet countries such as Moldova or the Baltic states,” according to the outlet.
Of note: The “greatest threat” Trump poses “is to his own country,” the Economist argues. The “moral authority” of the U.S. would decline “because America will have voted him in while knowing the worst.”
While “pursuing his enemies,” Trump “will wage war on any institution that stands in his way, including the courts and the Department of Justice,” the Economist said.
The big picture: The former president, who faces 91 criminal charges across four separate jurisdictions, has repeatedly made unsubstantiated claims trying to tie the prosecutors and others to Biden.

“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.”

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.”
