The two eagle's face to face symbolizes Mexico and the United States going against each other.United States is bigger but Mexico has the upper hand in case they try something with Mexico.It symbolizes how the United States want to build a wall and having Mexico pay but still refuse not to pay for it.
2/15/2017 08:14:10 am
i agree with u bc the mexico and the united states are going face to face with each other and tht the united states wants to build a wall and have mexico pay for it by themself
2/13/2017 08:42:11 am
The bald eagle represents the U.S. and the golden eagle is Mexico. They look like they're gonna fight cause of their face expression plus the eagle who represents Mexico has a rattle snake in his beak and the snake doesn't look happy.
2/13/2017 08:43:05 am
This picture explains that the mexico bird ( Golden eagle ) is against Donald Trump and hate the opinion he is making for example he wants Mexico to pay for the wall and it looks like the Mexico bird is armed and ready if anything goes wrong.

This cartoon matters because it symbolizes that mexico will fight back against Donald trump. The bald eagle(america) is bigger than the golden eagle(mexico) but they look as if the other is willing to fight if any sudden actions take place. Mexico refuses to do as Trump says in terms for paying for the trump wall.
2/15/2017 08:13:40 am
I agree with him because no matter how big America is Mexico won't give up just like that they will put up a fight in order to protect their people
2/26/2017 06:36:56 pm
I agree with them because mexicans gone fight for each other.

I honestly think Donald isn't going to last in the presidency. He wants to deport half or even more then half of american population. Its like having pizza without the bread. It just doesn't make sense to do that.
2/14/2017 10:19:43 am
When thinking of the presidency it has nothing to do with him lasting, but it has to do with a conflict between the amount of people he has ordered to deport are primarily mexican. Allowing us to view that mexico and united states are also at a conflict between who will pay for the wall trumps wants to build.
2/13/2017 08:54:41 am
This image shows that Mexico is strongly against the US building a wall and them paying for it. The golden eagle holding a rattlesnake towards the bald eagle shows that Mexico is ready for what the US is planning to do against them.
2/13/2017 08:56:38 am
Mexico aint going for nothing they aint letting trump kick them out.
Kevin Ramirez p.4
2/13/2017 11:25:18 am
I believe that Mexico and Donald Trump have beef due to the fact that Mexico does not want to pay for that wall and Donald Trump keeps on insisting Mexico to pay for that wall which they are not going to pay for.
2/13/2017 11:25:58 am
the two eagles face to face represents the united states and trump and theres a snake that looks poisinous yet its not radeling. i believe its shows that mexico is strong about not paying for the the wall that Donald Trump wants to make

The message for this picture is that mexico is not going to give Donald trump what he wants and he is not going to give him a warning.I do agree with this because why does mexico going to pay for it when all of the united states was once all of mexico(i think)

I think the overall message was that the US is the bigger nation with more resources but Mexico won't stand down to the US

There is two eagles confronting each other from two different countries.
2/13/2017 11:34:36 am
The eagles represent the U.S and Mexico I think this means that even though the U.S has more resources Mexico is not going to give up that easily.

The eagles do represent the United States and Mexico, but if you notice the U.S eagle is only looking at mexico not at the rattle snake which could potentially mean that mexico is holding back on the U.S. Everyone knows that if a snake bites you you could get poisoned or worst case scenario you could end up dead.I think that this cartoon is a massage to the U.S specifically trump that he better be watching out for mexico because they could end up on top.
2/13/2017 11:35:06 am
this drawing represents mexico which is the short eagle with the snake in his mouth. the tall eagle represents the U.S as you can see they're going head to head to head because president trump is trying to have them pay for a wall.
2/13/2017 11:35:33 am
i see two bold eagles going face to face with each other it symbolizes how mexico and the united states are at war with each other and how the united states is more powerful then mexico

The picture means mexico won't back down for anything no even to the U.S.A and our bald/bird brain president.

The message tried to say Mexico have a conflict with U.S because U.S
2/13/2017 01:00:52 pm
What i see in this picture it represents the bigger eagle is the U.S. and the smaller eagle it represent mexico.IT show us that the bigger eagle has the power than mexico and the snake in this picture is alive and also show that trump want mexico to pay the wall.!!!!!!
2/13/2017 01:03:42 pm
US is more powerful than Mexico
2/13/2017 01:03:50 pm
Although United States is bigger and more powerful than Mexico, but yet US isn't that protected.

This image shows both eagles defining Mexico and the U.S., and they are specifically drawn with similar features meaning the Trump eagle is big but its wings are small and weak, and the Mexican eagle shows it's small but looks like it can fly normally. Now this tells me that the Mexican eagle is more Independent.
2/13/2017 01:05:03 pm
i think the overall message to this cartoon is that obviously the big bald eagle represent donald trump and he is bigger that the other one to show he has more power.
2/13/2017 01:59:31 pm
The overall message to this cartoon is that Mexico ready to fight if it has even is they don't want to.It also means that they do not have a problem against the USA they have a problem with Donald Trump. And yes, i do agree with this message.
2/13/2017 02:00:53 pm
The message that this cartoon gives is that Donald Trump himself, not the United States, has problems with Mexico.
2/13/2017 02:01:55 pm
The overall message of this cartoon is to show that mexico is not getting alone with the president D.T. This is very important because U.S and mexico have always been friend for us to break that relationship can be bad for the u.s.a. as we can see this is why mexico have that snake in there mouth ready to bit.

You meant to put along rather than alone and I agree with what you believe cause us-mexico relations are very important

This cartoon of Trumps first 100 days matters because the cartoonist Cagle decided to illustrate the bird as Mexico, alothouhgh the bird is way smaller than the USA brird its prepared to fight. The US bird has hair to symbolize Trump to make the people aware who the problem is with. The problem that Mexico has is not with the American people but with the American president. The rattlesnake is calm as well but is prepared to attack which illustrates Mexico's position on the situation.
2/14/2017 10:16:57 am
I think the image represents the struggles and the problems the US and Mexico are having with each other.
2/14/2017 10:20:14 am
This image is saying that the eagle represents mexico taking on the trump bird. The snake has fangs representing that because of trump messing with Mexico, America might be in danger.
2/14/2017 10:20:28 am
I think the overall message of this art is using the mascots of America and Mexico which is the bald and golden eagle are face to face looking displeased as if they are angry and in disagreement which is what is happening in the world right now with Mexico not agreeing with Trump's plans on what to do with Mexico.

I think that this image represents how the US and Mexico have conflicts between each other and there is going to be one that comes out winning that conflict.

i feel like the overall depiction of this is to show that there is tension between the United states and Mexico . The snake is this drawing represents death since the artist drew a rattle snake. This can also show and or explain whats happened to both countries during the first 100 days that Donald Trump has been president .
2/14/2017 10:22:59 am
In this cartoon, there is two eagles; the golden eagle (represents the country Mexico) and the bald eagle (represents the country the United States). Both eagles seem to dislike each other and want to go into battle. The golden eagle (Mexico) has a rattle snake in its mouth and the bald eagle is to busy looking "tougher" and "bigger" that it doesn't see it. This signifies that Mexico can kill our country without us noticing it.
2/14/2017 10:23:05 am
This cartoon represents Trumps decisions with Mexico. The bird on the left is Mexico and is prepared to fight. The eagle on the right is the U.S.A and it's unaware of Mexico's snake. Although the U.S.A is bigger it underestimates Mexico, the snake can really hurt the U.S.A but the U.S.A takes does not notice. The U.S is blinded by how small Mexico is.
2/14/2017 10:23:18 am
the bird with the snake is mexico and the other eagle is america but symbolizes Donald Trump basically starting a war with Mexico.This leaves america and mexico in a rivalry that has been started by the president of the US. I do agree these two countries arent on good terms because trump said hurtful things about mexico and wanting to send all mexicans back to their country because they are 'bad people'. Then having a wall built and having mexico pay for it.
2/14/2017 10:23:50 am
The cartoon shows how mexico feels with US building a wall and them having to pay for it .The golden eagle represents mexico being ready for whats coming and they will not resist.
2/14/2017 10:23:55 am
I believe that the snake in the image is like the hidden weapon that can ultimately take of Donald Trump. I feel like the tension between Mexico and the U.S. will soon reach a breaking point and bad these will happen.
2/14/2017 10:24:15 am
The eagles in the cartoon represent Mexico vs. United States and they look to have a lot of tension. The tension between them looks intense and the US eagle is not aware of the snake with fangs but it might resemble that Mexico has hidden and strong defenses.
2/14/2017 10:24:29 am
This image represents how mexico and the US presidents are having their differences and are currently not getting along. This is very important to history because mexico and the us are neighbors are they are the ones who are supposed to be getting along the most.
2/14/2017 10:24:56 am
This cartoon is representing the US versus Mexico. This cartoon is saying that just because the US bird, that happens to have Donald Trump's characteristic, to be specific it is his hair. The meaning to me is that just because Trump is bigger in "power" does not mean Mexico is just backing down easily and is not willing to fight. That is where the snake comes into play. The snake represents the fight they are willing to give, kill or be killed.
2/14/2017 10:25:07 am
the message of this image shows that America's and Mexico's tensions are high and they quite possibly be two nations at soon. The trump eagle is bigger but does not notice the snake in the other eagles mouth which could represent that if America does go to war with Mexico and under estimates Mexico it could be its demise.
2/14/2017 10:25:27 am
The bald eagle with the snake in is beak represents Mexico and the one opposing it is Donald Trump, behalf of the U.S.. It clarifies that Trump has conflicts and/or problems with Mexico. In the image, the eagle with Trump's wig is bigger because in reality, Trump thinks that he has more power than anyone in the world, especially Mexico. The snake happens to have fangs that might represent an ally with Mexico that might hit Trump without him noticing.
2/14/2017 10:25:45 am
I think the smaller eagle represents Mexico and the eagle with yellow/blond hair is Donald trump.I think the image means that Trump is feeling superior than Mexico. Mexico is confronting Trump thats why they are faced to each other like if they were ready to fight.
2/14/2017 10:25:47 am
The overall message of this image is the brawl against Mexico and the United States. The American eagle represent us but the eagle with Trumps hair represents the grudge Donald Trump holds with Mexico. The eagle(which is smaller) that holds the snake represents Mexico. This image shows that although USA has more resources, Mexico isn't going down without a fight. With all of Trumps decisions and his retort, he may not see what's coming for him. The snake represents the surprised fight that can be coming to him.
2/14/2017 10:26:43 am
The message of this cartoon is that Mexico will fight against Trump if he has to. Donald Trump seems to be enemies with Mexico because of the wall he wants to build in the southern part of the Unites States. The eagle on the right might be bigger because of power that Unites States has over Mexico.
2/14/2017 10:27:27 am
In this image the eagle on the left is representing the country of Mexico and the eagle on the right is a reference to Donald Trump, the US president. This image is showing that these two countries are currently having conflicts and are bumping heads. One conflict may be where Trump has stated that the country of Mexico will pay for the wall that is being built on the border in between these two countries. Mexico has not agreed to pay the building of this wall.
