Melania Trump sculpture in Slovenia set fire to the fourth night of July
As the United States celebrated its Independence Day and President Trump promised to punish those who destroyed American monuments, a life-size sculpture of First Lady Melania Trump was burned near her hometown in Slovenia, the Reuters news agency Told.

Berlin-based American artist Brad Downey, who commissioned the sculpture, told Reuters that police told him what happened the next day after the incident. The wood sculpture, he told Reuters, was blackened and disintegrated.

"I want to know why they did it," Downey said. He told Reuters that he hoped Mrs Trump's statue would promote a conversation about political issues in the US, namely immigration. Downey said he filed a police report and hopes to interview the person or people who lit the sculpture for the film he is working on.

Police spokeswoman Alenka Drenik told Reuters the investigation was continuing, "so we cannot show details in the interest of other procedures."

The wooden statue of Mrs. Trump was unveiled a year earlier. The installation shows Melania as she was on the inauguration of President Donald Trump, wearing her light blue coat and waved her left hand toward the audience.

The sculpture, carved from the trunk of a living lime tree with a chain, was originally received with mixed reviews from the locals. A resident told Reuters in 2019 that Melania depicted in the sculpture "does not look as beautiful as it normally does," while another local told BBC News that she was "like a smurfette".

Statues of Mr. Trump have also been damaged. According to The Associated Press, an approximately 26-foot statue of Trump was burned to the ground in Slovenia in January. The statue clearly depicted Mr. Trump in a blue suit, white shirt and red tie. It is shown with the right fist in the air, and a mechanism that opens the mouth to show teeth like a shark.

On July 3, Mr. & Mrs. Trump celebrated at Mount Rushmore, where Mr. Trump announced an executive order to create "National Heroes of American Heroes" that would contain "statues of the earliest Americans." .
