Janagam (Telangana): A young Trump fan has unveiled a six feet statue of the United States President Donald Trump in Telangana, on Wednesday. He also said that he diligently observes a fast every Friday for the American leader.

Bussa Krishna, who is from Konnea village, had unveiled the statue on the occasion of Trump's birthday on June 14 and performed 'Abhishek'.

"I have installed Donald Trump's statue on his birthday and I pray to him like a God. For the first time, I saw Trump in my dream and it has repeated for the second time. The day India vs Pakistan match was held I saw him in my dream and thankfully India won the match. After this incident, I have kept Trump's picture as my display wallpaper of my mobile," he said while speaking to ANI.

Krishna claimed that Trump's statue cost him around Rs 1.3 lakh.

"I installed Trump's statue with my own money and it cost me around Rs 1.3 lakh. After installing his statue many people are calling me a Trump fan. I also observe fast on every Friday for Trump. I will live as Trump fan and die as Trump fan," he said.

"I thought Krishna has gone mad as he was worshipping Trump. He is continuously performing pooja for the last three years. Later, I started respecting him for his passion. He also celebrates Trumps birthday grandly," one of the villagers said.

Krishna said he was impressed by Trump for his straightforwardness.

Interestingly, Krishna's love for Trump has attracted international media as well. Many foreign media outlets have come forward to cover him in the recent past.

Trump has further stirred up his ongoing feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan by blaming the Pakistani-origin Labour leader a "disaster", blaming him for a recent spate of stabbings and street violence in the UK capital. Trump and Khan have repeatedly clashed ever since the mayor questioned the red carpet being rolled out for the US President by Britain, most recently for a state visit hosted by Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month.

Khan has also likened Trump to "20th century fascists" for his divisive views on immigration, with Trump hitting back with social media messages about his "terrible job" as Mayor of London. The US President's latest intervention on Twitter follows in the same vein, demanding that Khan should be replaced. "London needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster - will only get worse," he said, while retweeting a message that highlighted two stabbings and a shooting in London in the last few days. "He is a national disgrace who is destroying the city of London," a follow-up message read. Khan's spokesperson said the London Mayor's thoughts were with the victims' families and he "is not going to waste his time responding to this sort of tweet".
