Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been included in a Trump statue plan revealed in a new executive order yesterday. Twitter users are variously amused and bemused by the plan to create a National Garden of American Heroes, featuring statues of almost 250 people …

Trump first announced his intention to do this back in July of last year, but has left it until the last moment to provide the names.

While most people would acknowledge the importance or accomplishments of the majority of those listed, the sheer number of them is leading to suggestions that the end result will look more like a theme park, safari park or junkyard than a garden.

Is it like a thousand acres big? Do you drive through like a safari park?

Twitter users are also expressing doubts that Trump chose the names himself.

Some have pointed out that it seems unlikely that Trump even has any idea who many of them are.

Arendt is the author of The Origins of Totalitarianism, a three-volume book published in 1951 about the birth of Naziism. The book saw a resurgence in popularity following Trump’s election and presidency, and has been republished twice during Trump’s term in office.

Others have noted that Arendt is not the only one on the list who would not have been a fan of Trump.

You can read the full list below, but there seems little chance that the incoming Biden administration will proceed with this project.
