A political cartoonist in Canada was fired from a freelance job after he drew a cartoon showing President Donald Trump playing golf over the bodies of two migrants who died in the Rio Grande River.

Michael de Adder posted the cartoon on his Twitter account on June 26. In it, Trump is standing next to his golf cart and holding a golf club. As he looks down at the two bodies, he asks, "Do you mind if I play through?"

Adder posted several messages to his Twitter account over the weekend in regards to the situation. He claimed that every cartoon featuring Trump he submitted over the past year "was axed."

"It got to the point where I didn't submit any Donald Trump cartoons for fear that I might be fired," he wrote in another tweet.

According to the New York Post, the newspaper Adder was drawing for — the Brunswick News — said his freelance contract was not severed because of the cartoon.

"This is a false narrative which has emerged carelessly and recklessly on social media," the paper said in a statement, adding that the decision to let Adder go was made "long before this cartoon."
