2017 was the Year of the Rooster in Chinese astrology. And to celebrate the Lunar New Year, a Chinese shopping mall in Taiyuan, Shanxi, erected a giant inflatable chicken with President Donald Trump's haircut.
The rooster eventually made its way to Washington DC in August.
To keep things consistent. the same shopping mall has now made a similar statue to immortalise Trump in the form of this year's Year of the Dog.
Welcome the #TrumpDog: A giant dog figure sporting Trump's hairdo and gesture is seen outside a shopping mall in downtown Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi Province, heralding the upcoming Year of the Dog.

Trump was born in the year of the dog, which occurs every twelve years. According to Quartz, it's bad luck if the animal of the year is the same year you were born in.
Here's how social media reacted to the latest statue...

Liked this, just cause of how funny I thought this statue looked. And I meant that in a good way, even if I'm not a fan of Trump.— Frostlich The DK (@FrostlichTheDK) December 28, 2017
i know China has an astounding history and culture but this might be the best thing they ever did— James Egan (@jameswzegan85) December 29, 2017
