Slovenia Trump statue Destroyed in Fire

Slovenia Trump statue Destroyed in Fire.

The statue of the US president was almost 26ft tall, and depicted the politician with his hand raised in the air, his trademark hairstyle, blue suit, white shirt and a long red tie.

When triggered, a mechanism inside the statue opened a red-painted mouth and shark-like teeth used to appear.

Slovenian police say they are now looking for the arsonist.

The monument was erected last year in Sela pri Kamniku, a village in the north east of Slovenia, and quickly became a tourist attraction.

However it was disliked by some local villagers, with one resident driving a tractor into it ahead of its unveiling.

The statue of Mr Trump was designed by Tomaz Schlegl, who said it was a comment on populism.

He told the French news agency AFP: “For the first time since World War II populism is prevailing: look at [British Prime Minister Boris] Johnson, look at Trump, our president or [Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor] Orban. Where is this world heading?.

“We want to open people’s eyes about what democracy is.”

It was built shortly after a statue of Melania was unveiled in Slovenia, on the outskirts of Sevnica.

The sculpture was carved from a tree with a chainsaw.
