Madame Tussauds dresses Trump wax statue in golf clothes to reflect his 2021 wardrobe

Trump statue built in 2017 with hair made of yak hair and eyebrows from squirrel fur


London’s most famous wax museum has changed up one of its most prominent exhibits: Outgoing US President Donald Trump. Normally seen in a black suit with a long, red tie, Trump’s figure has now been adorned in a set of garish golfer clothes in a bid to reflect what the soon-to-be ex-president will be doing in 2021, according to the museum. 

“His campaign may not have been a hole in one, but @realDonaldTrump is now on course to dedicate more of his time to his favourite sport as #MadameTussaudsLondon re-dresses his figure in golfing attire to reflect his potential 2021 wardrobe Camera @PA” Madame Tussauds tweeted.

The original version of the statue was made at a cost of around $185,000 and, with his hair made out of a combination of human and yak hair.  His eyebrows, incidentally, are made of squirrel hair., 

A week ago, the Madame Tussauds in Berlin already made a statement—tossing its statue of Trump into a dustbin, now part of a new exhibit. Though the move was made before it was known that Trump had lost the election, the museum said it was a “preparatory measure”.

Madame Tussauds replaced its statue of Obama with the one of Trump in 2017.
