Seems to me it's metaphorical propaganda. Webster defines metaphor as "a figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is used in place of another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them." https://www.merriam-...ionary/metaphor
It's obviously trying to convey the message that Trump and Putin are in cahoots to impose some kind of common world order. Somebody has photo shopped pictures of Trump and Putin, put them together, stuck it on another photo of a billboard and added the slogan. It seems very much like other examples of propaganda, like the one of Putin in an Uncle Sam costume saying "I Want Ukraine". Is that delusional or just metaphorical?
Depending on the politics of whoever put it together, they might think that was a bad thing or a good thing. Serbs tend to be pro-Putin, so I'd guess they'd think it'sa good thing, but if I saw the sign here I'd say anti-Trump/Putin. Sometimes metaphorical propaganda can convey a truth in a way that brings it home more effectively to the observer than a purely factual statement. I'd say the Bible is a good example of that. Sometimes, of course, it can do the same for a falsehood. As for the billboard in question, it's an exaggeration, but I don't see anything particularly delusional about it, unless we're making the argument that all political opinion is delusional, which is arguable.
