I think this is the first strip to refer to Trump by name. Can anyone confirm that? Captain Video (talk) 05:32, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Negatory. 2137: Text Entry is one I remember. 06:00, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
The earliest I'm aware of is 980: Money from 2011 (so before he'd held elective office). It's almost unfindable in the giant image. Trump is mentioned in the lower right corner of the "Billionaires" box, inside the very large "Billions" section. 06:12, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
And, of course, 2383: Electoral Precedent 2020.
I was sufficiently interested in this question to actually look it up with the search function. Turns out the transcripts are actually useful for something!
As far as I can tell, these are the only nine comics (inclusive of this one) that use the name "Trump", and there are only four occurrences of "Donald Trump", including this. So it's not unknown, but Randall does seem to be avoiding it. 06:56, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
