US Administrative removes Trump’s wax statue from Texas museum

A wax statue of former US President Donald Trump has been removed from the museum. A museum in the city of Texas had a wax statue of Trump. Along with Trump were statues of Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. In the past few days, however, there has been a steady stream of attacks on Trump’s statues. So it was decided by the administration to remove it.

Attacks on Trump’s statue have been on the rise for the past few days. Clay Stuart, the regional manager of Ripple Entertainment, said some people slapped him in the face. There is a high risk of such an attack if there is a statue of any politician.

According to reports, the statue has been moved to Lewis Tussauds. Trump’s statue will not be available until the new President Joe Biden arrives at the museum. Biden’s statue is now under construction.

Notably, according to several survey reports, Trump’s popularity has waned since the violence in the Capital Building this year. Sixty eight percent of Americans say they no longer want to see Trump as a politician after the violence by Trump supporters.

The statue of Trump was removed from the Madame Tussauds Museum before the US presidential election last year. Joe Biden defeated Trump in 2020 to become President of the United States. Similarly, Kamala Harris became Vice President.

The Electoral College affirms President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory

President-elect Joe Biden finally won the state-by-state Electoral College Vote officially and delivered a powerful lecture to President Donald Trump’s attack on the legitimacy of his victory.

As per a Reuters report California, the most-populous U.S. state, put Biden over the 270 votes required to win the Electoral College when its 55 electors consistently cast ballots for him. After officially winning the U.S. election, Mr. Biden gave a speech saying – “In this battle for the soul of America, democracy prevailed. Now it’s time to turn the page, as we’ve done throughout our history  to unite, to heal. The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago, We now know that not even a pandemic or an abuse of power can extinguish that flame.”

U.S. President Donald Trump alleged that the Voter was all fraud on the 3rd November election and tried to subvert the process. In 2016, Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton despite losing the national popular vote by nearly 3 million ballots.

Biden then reiterated that Donald and his allies filed many legal challenges to the vote totals, including a Texas lawsuit that asked the U.S. Supreme Court to invalidate four state’s results. Later the court rejected all the bids with no objections last week.

After Biden’s victory, Kamala Harris-the first woman, first Black person and first Asian American to become vice president-elect – will be declared in on 20th January.
