On January 5, U.S. President Donald Trump paid an unexpected visit to the United States’ Embassy in Kyiv. Half-naked, the world leader carried a briefcase labeled “nuclear football” and had the phrase “Mr. Big Button” scrawled across his chest.

Only it wasn’t the real Donald Trump, but a female activist from the Ukrainian feminist organization Femen. Using a wig and makeup, she had transformed herself into a surprisingly realistic Trump to draw attention to the recent war of words between the U.S. president and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

During his New Year’s television address, Kim had threatened the U.S. with North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. “The U.S. should know that the button for nuclear weapons is on my desk. This is not blackmail but reality,” the North Korean leader said.

Reacting to the statement, Trump tweeted that his “nuclear button” is “much bigger” and “more powerful” than Kim’s.

“Dear Presidents, if God deprived you of a button, this is not a reason to destroy the world!” Femen wrote, explaining the protest on its website.
