In an Instagram post Wednesday, Souza shared two photos side-by-side, with the first showing a viral close-up image of handwritten notes Trump used while speaking to reporters about the public impeachment hearings.

“I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zellinsky [Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky] to do the right thing," the page reads in thick black marker.


The second photo in the post was a picture Souza snapped of notes Obama made while in office, showing the former president holding a yellow booklet of pages filled with nearly 40 lines of notes written in small print and what appears to be black pen ink.

In the post’s caption, Souza thanked Getty Images photographer Mark Wilson, who captured the viral image of Trump’s notes, for taking a “great storytelling image.”

“Great storytelling image by Mark Wilson of Getty Images showing comrade minus’s handwritten remarks today,” Souza wrote. “Swipe to see an almost identical image I made of President Obama a few years ago.”
