Chinese news source Global Times had a word with the seller, who said that making a Trump Buddha sculpture struck him when he considered the previous US President’s trademark “Make America Great Again,” and how he “often claimed he knew things better than anyone.”

“The vast majority just purchased it for entertainment only,” the vendor said, adding that he had made just 100 sculptures, however, had gotten “dozens” of orders.

The Trump statue comes in two sizes: a 5-foot tall version valued at $153, and a 14-foot tall sculpture that will cost purchasers $613.

Li Guoqiang, a Beijing man in his late 30s, having a construction firm in the Beijing rural areas and is waiting that the small size sculpture will be delivered to him from Xiamen.

Li said: “I thought it was a really comical thing to have in the office. I can’t say I’m a Trump fan but he looks quite peaceful there, doesn’t he?” Li told Insider.

At the point when asked where he would put the Trump Buddha sculpture, Li said that he had made room for it along the corridor of his office’s second-floor washroom.
