President Donald Trump made a joke at a rally about being added among the US presidents on Mount Rushmore. Trump’s remarks got mixed reaction as people imagined the current President on the mountain alongside George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

The comment was made by President Trump during a rally in Youngstown, Ohio, where he said that

"every president on Mount Rushmore believed in protecting American industry.” Adding that: "Now here’s what I do. I’d ask whether or not you someday think I will be on Mount Rushmore,” Trump explained.

“But here’s the problem, if I did it joking, totally joking, having fun, the fake news media will say ‘he believes he should be on Mount Rushmore.’ So I won’t say it. Okay? I won’t say it.”

Despite Trump’s clarification that he won't say that he should be on Mount Rushmore, people on social media quickly loaded up Photoshop and imagined President Trump on Mount Rushmore.

The incident comes shortly after Trump hailed the prospect of an exciting new trade deal with Britain, following outrage over the possible import of chlorinated chicken.

The import of poultry is about to start after the International Trade Secretary expressed his interest in endorsing the move after Brexit. However, the Secretary is being opposed by Michael Gove, the Environment Secretary, who has insisted that food standards must not be downgraded.

After the controversy, Mr. Trump hailed the talks between Dr. Fox and US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer yesterday. He also posted on his official presidential Twitter account, Mr Trump said: "Our special relationship w/ UK is going to be even better. @USTradeRep & UK's @LiamFox met today to begin new chapter for stronger trade!"

I know, I just worry how many million heads the sheer corny , trite obviousneess of it flew over. Never forget, to maximise participation you have to aim for the dumbest in the audience, saying that though, in all seriousness can you imagine how many gallons of fake tan and orange wig dye they'd need if they colourised it? It would be the first man-made object to blind you in space, or should that be wish you were blind in space?
