Donald J. Trump inaugurated at Madame Tussauds London
- Wednesday 18th January 2017
Today we unveiled the wax figure of President Elect Donald Trump, just days ahead of the American’s official Presidential Inauguration in Washington. The controversial Republican will now reside in our Oval Office section – next to fellow famous politicians and global icons also immortalised in wax.
Our artists have been hard at work creating the wax figure of Trump since the nation voted the American to become the 45th Commander-in-chief back in September. When the results were confirmed, our team of highly skilled sculptors, hair insertors and makeup artists set out to ensure the wax figure was completed in time for the historical event, which takes place on Friday 20th January at the US Capitol in Washington.
Now our visitors will have the privilege of seeing the American’s wax likeness before he is officially unveiled to the world at the end of the week. The man who claims he wants to ‘Make America Great Again’ will be dressed in his recognisable Republican red silk-tie, navy power suit and Made in American flag lapel pin.
Edward Fuller, our General Manager said: “We’re excited to finally unveil the wax figure of President Donald Trump in Madame Tussauds London ahead of what will be recognised as a momentous occasion in American politics and world history. Millions of people across the globe will be tuning in to watch Mr Trump announced as the country’s new leader, so we are delighted to be one step ahead of the powers that be and reveal the next best thing in the attraction.
“Since Mr Trump was announced as the victorious candidate in what was a nail-biting and hard-fought campaign for both parties, our studio team have been frantically busy matching his infamous glowing tan and trademark hairstyle in time for the start of his Presidential reign. Our guests will now find him standing imperiously in the Oval Office section within the attraction where he’ll reside for the remainder of his Presidency.”
