A statue of the "Trump rooster," according to a CNN report, will stand outside a mall in the Chinese city of Taiyuan. The rooster, which comes complete with Trump's signature hairstyle and hand gestures, was commissioned by the company that owns the mall.

"I think the rooster is very cute and funny, the hairstyle and eyebrows look very much like Donald Trump. I'm sure it will attract a lot of customers," Wei Qing, whose Shenghe Yangtai Business is selling replica roosters, told CNN.

The Trump rooster is being sold in at least four stores, with prices ranging from $57 to $1,739 for a 32 foot tall statue.

2017, the first year of Trump's presidency, will also be the year of the rooster in the Chinese zodiac. 

Trump has been the subject of mockery in China following his election. Chinese state media knocked Trump as a "diplomatic rookie" after his phone call with the president of Taiwan. For his part, Trump has promised to review United States trade policy toward China, and urged the country to keep an underwater drone it seized from the United States government earlier this month.
