A vast inflatable chicken has appeared near the White House
The 30ft tall bird, referred to as «Chicken Don», weathers between the official residence of the US president and the famous Washington Monument.
Proprietress Taran Singh Brar said the inflatable — complete with a distinguishing mop of blonde hair — portrayed a president who is «afraid».
In a video posted on common media on Wednesday, activist and documentary maker Mr Brar said he hoped to «create awareness» to what he said was a «bad and destabilising» US president.
The chicken is a beef against Donald Trump’s leadership
We are out here to criticise our president for being inept and ineffective as a leader
He said: “We are out here to criticise our president for being low and ineffective as a leader.
«He seems afraid to stand up to Putin and now he’s playing a practise deceit of chicken with North Korea,» Mr Brar said.
The Chicken Don has disjoined opinion on social media, with Twitter users at odds once again whether the stunt was «pathetic» or «cute».

Another tweeted: «President Trump blow the whistle ons nuclear power North Korea there will be ‘Fire & bitch’ and democrats inflate a chicken? Insanity.
