It was clear almost from the beginning that Donald Trump's presidential campaign had the potential to be one of the greatest meme-generating machines of all time. During the course of the campaign, the design community at DesignCrowd.com has been running election- and Trump-themed design contests with hilarious results.

One contest asked participants to imagine Donald Trump in a famous horror movie scene. The most popular choice put The Donald into "The Shining." Nobody is saying that Trump has lost his mind in an empty hotel, but mainstream Republicans certainly might relate to the idea of a stranger running around and wreaking havoc in their party.

Some of the best Trump memes from the DesignCrowd community imagine Trump as a popular movie character. While memes offer plenty of opportunity to have a little fun at The Donald's expense, it seems only fair to share one that might actually reflect how Trump sees himself.
