People gather around a statue depicting republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the nude
A passerby hugs a statue depicting republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the nude on August 18, 2016 in San Francisco, United States.
The statues were put up in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cleveland yesterday by the group called 'Indecline', which has lashed out at Trump in past. Amused and surprised passers-by flocked to take pictures with the statue showing a stern-faced Trump with trademark flock of bright yellow hair and hands folded over a bulging belly.
A report in NBC News quoted a statement by the group as saying that the hope behind putting up the statues is that Trump 'is never installed in the most powerful political and military position in the world'. "It is through these sculptures that we leave behind the physical and metaphorical embodiment of the ghastly soul of one of America's most infamous and reviled politicians," the group said in a statement.
A statue in Manhattan's Union Square quickly drew the attention of people before it was removed by the city's parks department. While several people took pictures with the statue, others shouted anti-Trump slogans.
