The golden statue of Donald Trump caused a sensation at the annual conservative gathering in the United States. Mexico is a country often demonized by former presidents.
The statue is bigger than life, with a golden head and Trump’s trademark suit jacket, with a white shirt and red tie. The video tapes and pictures of the tribute circulated in the lobby of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida, and went viral on Friday.
This meeting was seen as an important rally for Republican rights. Although it was the result of two bombings, seemingly endless scandals and parades, and a slow response to the coronavirus, this year has become a symbol of Trump̵
Now, Tommy Zegan, the artist behind Trump’s huge statue, revealed that the object was made in Mexico. This country has always been the target of Trump’s racist abuse during his political career, and he is actually a country seeking to build a wall.
“It was made in Mexico,” Zegen told Politico’s “Playbook” newsletter. Zegan, who lives in Mexico with a permanent residence visa, gave the Playbook a complete introduction to the transportation of the monument to CPAC.
Politico reports: “It took Zegan more than six months to make a 200-pound fiberglass statue with the help of three men from Rosarito. He shipped it to Tampa, Florida. City, chrome was painted there, and then dragged from there to CPAC.”
