Why are statues of naked Donald Trump appearing across US?

Several statues of stern-faced nominee with hands folded over belly crop up over US

Life-size naked statues of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump have been put up in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Cleveland.

They are the brainchild of an activist collective called Indecline, which says it is vehemently against a Trump presidency.

The statues, created by an artist in Cleveland, are of a stern-faced Mr Trump with his hands folded over a bulging belly.

A statue in New York City's Union Square quickly drew the attention of people before it was removed by the parks department.


Indecline said statues on the West Coast were still in place on Thursday.

Mr Trump’s campaign has declined to comment on the statues.
