Trump Rat returns in Manhattan: Photos

Trump Rat returned to public view on Thursday, just days after another inflatable likeness of President Donald Trump — Trump Baby — flew over London.

Commissioned by Chelsea gallery owner John Post Lee and designed by artist Jeffrey Beebe, Trump Rat debuted in NYC in August 2017.

A total selfie magnet, TR should continue to stand 15 feet tall at 58th Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan at least through the afternoon of July 19, Lee said.
