The parodied cover urges supporters to text a campaign donation to Trump, but judging from the Twitter reactions, it seems most of these donations would be out of pity.

The achievements listed in the tweet were as artificial as the cover.

This is at least the third time in a month that Trump or his campaign has tweeted a picture of his head superimposed on someone else. One was Sylvester Stallone as the title character from Rocky and the other was Thanos from Marvel's Avengers: Endgame.
