A giant dog statue that looks like President Donald Trump has been placed outside a shopping mall in China.
The enormous Trump-dog was placed a few days ago just outside a mall in Taiyuan, and it resembles President Donald Trump, with golden hair and eyebrows and with his index finger pointing to the sky, or more specifically to the moon as China enters the Lunar New Year.
In Chinese zodiac 2018 is the year of the dog, repeating itself every 12 years. 1946, the year when President Donald Trump was born was also a year of the dog.
“A giant rooster statue styled to look like Trump was placed outside the mall at the end of 2016 to ring in the year of the rooster,” The Hill reports.
During Trump’s presidential campaign, China was one of his focal points, blaming it for taking advantage of America’s trade and saying that if he were to be elected he would change that.
“We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country,” Trump said during one of his speeches.
But last month while he was visiting China, it looked like he changed his mind and backed down from his rhetoric. This time he blamed the previous administration for, as he says, “the unfair trade practices.”
“After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for benefit of their citizens? I give China great credit,” he said while being part of a ceremony hosted by Chinese officials in Beijing.
Ironically, after his return from the Asia tour President Trump published his national security strategy document, emphasizing with it a stronger and stricter stance toward China and other Asian nations that have been U.S. trading partners.
