Giant inflatable chicken resembling Trump placed near White House

A giant inflatable chicken intended to represent President Donald Trump was placed near the White House on Wednesday afternoon.

The chicken sports golden hair and Trump-like hand gestures. According to The Hill, the object is based on a statue unveiled at a Chinese mall in 2016.

Taran Singh Brar, who said he was the owner, told HuffPost's Philip Lewis the massive inflatable object was a visual protest against Trump. He reportedly purchased the chicken for $1,300 to call the president out for being "too chicken to release his tax returns" and to stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Brar staged the chicken in The Ellipse, a park just south of the White House.
