Tehran, Iran (AP) -- Iranians have organized a "Trumpism" cartoon contest in which hundreds of participants were invited to submit artwork mocking the U.S. leader.

The same organizers held a Holocaust cartoon contest last year, which they said was meant to highlight Western double standards on free speech and not to cast doubt on the Nazi genocide.
