Rodriguez said in an interview with Time that the design of flaming Trump hair is inspired by the Michael Wolff's new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. The image of flaming hair is also evoked by Trump’s taunts towards North Korea, like his once statement that North Korea would be "met with fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it continued threatening the United States.

"We used to live where the United States was a pretty steady country, and now you wake up every day and try to figure out where’s the next fire, where do we have to go, what do we have to try to contain," Rodriguez said in the interview. "It’s sort of this President that you’re always trying to contain, like a wildfire that’s moving from one place to the other at all times."

His depictions of Trump have won him attention and applause, but he said he is not inspired by Trump at all. "I feel that I’m in a position where I know how to make pictures that communicate well, and I don't really see that many people visually taking him on. It’s a bit of a responsibility for me to do it," he said.

Rodriguez, as a Cuban-American, told Time that he left his homeland because he treasured free speech, and he will keep on doing it.
