In a video posted on social media on Wednesday, activist and documentary maker Brar said he hoped to "bring awareness" to what he said was a "bad and destabilising" U.S. president. The owner said he placed it behind the White House to egg the president into releasing his tax returns.

Since then the chicken, which was erected by documentary filmmaker Taran Singh Brar, has become an internet sensation, sparking a number of memes and hashtags in its honor.

Brar, in a report by Reuters, said: "I brought the chicken out here to make a statement nearly like a visual, political protest to critique the President's behaviour".

Brar listed Trump's unwillingness to release tax returns, stand up to Vladimir Putin and dealing with North Korea as his prime examples.

UN Security Council imposes new North Korea sanctions over missile tests
However, repeated sanctions had so far failed to deter leader Kim Jong-Un from continuing with his country's missile development. North Korea has repeatedly said it will never give up its nuclear arsenal, which it sees as a guarantee of its security.

While the chicken, which has an uncanny resemblance to Trump, can bee seen outside of the White House, it appeared without explanation or message attached.

The Hill reports that the chicken was designed with "a golden coif of hair" and it was meant to resemble President Trump. "I realized it's actually better, because the symbolism works and the Secret Service won't be as jumpy", Brar said. "They gave me a waiver for the 30-foot tall Chicken Don". That chicken statue, which is seen in the tweet below, is in Taiyuan, North China's Shanxi province. Knockoffs of the original sculpture include miniature ceramic replicas, shirts, mugs and, of course, a giant inflatable model. However, it is unclear why the rooster made its arrival again, according to CBS News.

Sadly, Trump is, indeed, visiting one of his properties right now on what he claims is a working vacation.
