Anarchist collective Indecline installed several naked, life-size statues of Donald Trump across the U.S. this morning.
The statues were erected in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle.

The group named the political art project “The Emperor Has No Balls,” inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” according to The Washington Post.
“Like it or not, Trump is a larger-than-life figure in world culture at the moment,” an Indecline spokesperson told the Post.
“Looking back in history, that’s how those figures were memorialized and idolized in their time — with statues,” he added.
The Las-Vegas sculptor behind the project, who goes by Ginger, shared a video showcasing the making of the art piece.
“When the guys [from INDECLINE] approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities,” he told the Post.
“Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities.”
