Madame Tussauds has scored a social media hit, poking fun at Donald Trump for abandoning plans to open the new US embassy in London.
Its waxwork figure of the US President made an appearance outside the building on Friday morning, with the company tweeting: ‘Trump cancelled his visit so we stepped in! It was certainly a surprise for the workmen at the Embassy. #TrumpVisit’. The message has so far been retweeted 1,666 times and liked 3,352 times, with replies including: ‘Better add about 59 lbs to that wax dummy so it can more closely resemble the real dummy’ and ‘He should also have a cheeseburger in one hand and a diet coke in the other’.
It was also picked up by the mainstream media. "We woke up to the news as everyone else did in the country and thought it would be a bit of fun," the attraction's Claire Treacy told Sky News.
