According to Reuters, Madame Tussauds Berlin placed the statue of President Donald Trump in a trash can full of garbage bags.
The trash can labeled “Dumping Trump makes America great again”
Orkide Yalcindag, the museum’s marketing manager, told Reuters that Trump’s new location in the trash bin should reflect the wax museum’s expectations for the results of the US election.
Yalcindag told the media: “Before the US election, today’s event is not a symbolic thing.” “We took the wax figure of Donald Trump here at Madame Tussauds in Berlin to prepare.”
After Trump appeared to fail in the polls, the stunts began. According to Vox’s Matthew Yglesias, ten national surveys released on Thursday showed that Biden was ahead of Trump before Tuesday’s election. The RealClearPolitics tracker shows that the national average puts Biden ahead by 7.8 points.
According to Reuters, Madame Tussauds usually displays the figure of the former US president, so Trump may return to the museum after the election.
