Chinese mall displays bizarre Trump statue

A mall in China has selected a strange new mascot -- a giant rooster statue made in Donald Trump's image.

According to CNN, the sculpture will stand outside a mall in the Chinese city of Taiyuan.

The rooster, which was commissioned by the company that owns the mall.

"I think the rooster is very cute and funny, the hairstyle and eyebrows look very much like Donald Trump. I'm sure it will attract a lot of customers," Wei Qing, whose Shenghe Yangtai Business is selling replica roosters, told CNN.

2017, the year Trump will take office, is also the year of the rooster in the Chinese zodiac.

The president-elect has often been mocked in China -- and the state media called him a "diplomatic rookie" after he spoke on the phone with the president of Taiwan.
