The 30-feet tall bird, referred to as "Chicken Don", stands between the official residence of the United States president and the famous Washington Monument, the BBC reported. One man apparently thought that spending $1,300 on a 30-foot inflatable chicken that slightly resembles President Trump was a sound financial decision.

Whatever the chicken's message, Trump is not now staying at the White House, and is on vacation in New Jersey.

Twitter users lost no time in posting images of the irate-looking chicken with the unmistakable golden pompadour seemingly glaring down at the White House.

Taran Singh Brar, a documentary filmmaker, said he is behind the inflatable in which he has named "Chicken Don".

Brar listed Trump's unwillingness to release tax returns, stand up to Vladimir Putin and dealing with North Korea as his prime examples.

His guests included country acts, The Monkees , Lucille Ball, Cream, Neil Diamond and Ella Fitzgerald. He moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to join his uncle's band and appear on his uncle's radio show.

Singh Brar said the protest was to "criticise our leader for being weak and ineffective".

And it wasn't long before journalists and social media started buzzing about the bird known as "Chicken Don".

But we were left with so many questions, especially: Did the artist know Mr. Trump would be out of town when he unveiled his resistance piece? He is at his golf club in New Jersey on a working vacation. Ebay lists several available inflatable Trump chickens.

A Trump chicken was previously used to mark the Year of the Rooster in China.

Brar also set up a GoFundMe page back in March to raise money for the inflatable chicken.
