An unusual sightseer is standing behind the White House on Wednesday—a huge inflatable chicken that resembles President Donald Trump. Social media users are calling it the Trump Chicken.
The giant inflatable Trump Chicken has the signature hairstyle and hand gestures similar to the Presidents. It is erected at the Ellipse (President’s Park South) located just south of the White House fence. The area is open to the public.
Pres. Trump is currently not in the White House to see the inflatable prop that resembles him. The President is on a 17-day working vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
The inflatable Trump Chicken is a copy of the giant Trump Rooster mascot, which was first unveiled by a mall in the city of Taiyuan in China in December to welcome Chinese New Year. In the Chinese zodiac, 2017 is the year of the rooster and the first year of Trump’s presidency.
The Trump Chicken or Rooster has been used by the organizers of the Tax March to persuade the President to release his tax returns to see if he is really fighting for the American people or just for his fellow billionaires. They are using the giant inflatable prop in their protests across the country from D.C. to San Francisco.
Tax March is a national movement led by everyday Americans. They want any reform to the tax code to be “about closing loopholes for the wealthy and big corporations and building an economy that invests in working families.”
In a video message posted on Twitter, Taran Singh Brar, a documentary filmmaker and organizer, said they erected the giant prop to “criticize the President for being weak and ineffective leader.” Brar added that Trump is “too afraid to release his tax return, too afraid to stand up to Putin and now engaged in a game of chicken with Kim Jong-un and yet he wants a military upgrade at DC.”
Furthermore , Brar said they are there to make fun of Trump for being a chicken on the issues he mentioned.
