While campaigning for president, Donald Trump took plenty of pleasure in taking potshots at world power China (even as he’s walked back some of those statements a little).
China, in turn, has responded by portraying Trump as giant animals.
A mall in the city of Taiyuan in China’s Shanxi province gave the world this giant Trump-like dog because how else could you really expect to end a year as surreal as this one. February’s Lunar New Year celebration will usher in — what else? — the year of the dog for the Chinese zodiac. It’s all coming together.

And Rooster Trump, which was wildly popular, would eventually make its way over the U.S. where it set up shop within spitting distance of the White House.
And, not to be outdone, someone set up a giant inflatable Trump Rat in New York City ahead of one of Trump’s trips to his home tower in August.
Which one of the three is the most lifelike isn’t for us to say. No, our main job here is to spread around the joys brought by animal Trumps and pray that, under no circumstances, will any of these monsters come to life and rampage through our city streets.
