A statue of President Donald Trump was reportedly burned to the ground Thursday in First lady Melania Trump’s home country of Slovenia.
The statue of Trump was 26-feet-tall, and featured the U.S. president in a suit and red tie, with a clenched fist, according to The Associated Press. The burning of the statue was condemned by the mayor of Morvace, Slovenia, who said the police are still searching for the arsonist.

“Like all populists, the statue has two faces,” statue creator Thomas Schlegl said in August, according to the AP. “One is humane and nice, the other is that of a vampire.”
Slovenia is the home country of Melania Trump, who came to the United States in the 1990’s.
