Trump’s naked statue removed from Manhattan

New York, Aug 19 (IANS) New York City authorities have removed a life-size, naturally-coloured statue of a completely naked Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump from Union Square in downtown Manhattan.

The statue is the work of a group of artists known as Indecline, which by placing the figure of the real estate mogul in the middle of a heavily crowded area were aiming to protest the attitudes and statements of the Republican candidate, EFE news reported.

The naked and flesh-coloured sculpture of a paunchy Trump stood glued with epoxy to the square for about two hours before personnel from the city’s Parks Department removed it, with the department saying in a communique that it is illegal to display artwork in public without the proper permits.

Before it was withdrawn, numerous passersby, including tourists, were able to take pictures of – and with – the sculpture.

Indecline carried out similar protests against Trump in Seattle, Cleveland, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

“Unlike the statues, it’s our hope that Donald Trump, our modern day Emperor of Fascism and Bigotry is never installed in the most powerful political and military position in the world. These fleeting installations represent this fleeting nightmare, and in the fall, it is our wish to look back and laugh at Donald Trump’s failed and delusional quest to obtain the presidency,” the group said in a statement.
