Small Italian Town To Erect 8-Foot Marble Donald Trump Statue
A little Italian town outside of Tuscany, Italy is hoping to attract American tourists by erecting an 8-foot marble President Donald Trump statue.
The Donald Trump statue will stand in Vagli di Sotto’s Park of Honor and Dishonor, a local attraction for the town of 1,000 people.
According to a report by NBC News, mayor of Vagli di Sotto, Mario Puglio said both Italian and Americans have offered funds of $250,000 to pay for the statue.
Interestingly, Trump statue is joined by an interesting mix of history makers.
They include: a French police dog who was killed after the 2015 Paris attacks and Francesco Schettino, the Costa Concordia cruise ship captain who abandoned his sinking ship.
Mayor Puglio speaking to local newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano said:
“it’s for history to decide whether Trump merits honor or dishonor.”
Meanwhile, American President Donald Trump has said he is considering signing a “brand-new” executive order on immigration.
This is coming after a US Supreme court ruling had blocked the implementation of his travel ban on Thursday.
The US president said he was confident he would win the court battle over the hugely controversial executive order.

Trump’s blocked order would have suspended the country’s refugee programme and barred citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries.
He said the White House was also considering “a lot of other options, including just filing a brand new order
Asked if he meant a new executive order, he said:
“It very well could be. We need speed for reasons of security, so it very well could be.”
Donald Trump who spoke aboard the president’s special fleet, Air Force One on his way to Florida for the weekend said he could sign a fresh executive order by Monday or Tuesday.
When asked what revisions the new order would include, he said: “New security measures.”
According to the Associated Press, Trump said a new order would probably change “very little” from the first.
