The Berlin’s Madame Tussauds has dumped Donald Trump’s wax figure in trash bin as an apparent “preparatory measure” in case he does not win a second term following Election Day in the U.S. on November 3.
The trash bin, which was labelled with the words “Dump Trump Make America Great Again,” was surrounded by images of the president’s tweets, including phrases like “Fake News” and “You are Fired,” as well as “I Love Berlin,” as reported by The Hill. A Make America Great Again hat was also placed on top of one of the trash bags.
Orkide Yalcindag, the museum’s marketing manager, told Reuters that Trump’s new placement in the dumpster was supposed to reflect the wax museum’s expectations of how the US election will turn out.
“Today’s activity is rather of a symbolic character ahead of the elections in the United States,” Yalcindag told the outlet. “We here at Madame Tussauds Berlin removed Donald Trump’s waxwork as a preparatory measure.”
More than 87 million votes have already been cast via the mail or via early voting, according to the U.S. Elections Project.
