A stone carving dating back 700 years has been spotted inside a Nottinghamshire cathedral which looks like President Donald Trump.
According to Sun UK, the grotesque at Southwell Minster is said of have been instantly recognised as the recently elected American president by visitors – because of its comb-over hairstyle.
There are hundreds of strange and comical sculpted faces in the entrance to the old cathedral. This Trump carving was snapped way before he became president but has recently caused quite a stir on social media.
Samira Ahmed shared a snap of the carved pulpitum last year with the caption: “Proof of #endofdays? Donald Trump was carved as a gargoyle in Southwell Minster 700 years ago…”
She has since seen her original photo retweeted more than 500 times, Nottingham Post reports.
Reverend Canon Nigel Coates, who is based at the cathedral, told Nottingham Post: “We knew the head well, but none of us had spotted the Donald Trump hairstyle before. It’s really the hairstyle that is similar.
“He’s among the ‘lower level’ of heads, not among the kings and queens and merchants.
“So Donald Trump might be flattered that he features in 14th century Mansfield stone – but not that he’s not among the kings and queens.”
Earlier this week, Trump blasted Arnold Schwarzenegger as the feud between The Apprentice adversaries heated up. Taking a dig at the success of his replacement on the hit business reality show, Trump joked: “I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can for those ratings, okay?”
President Trump took the swipe at his fellow Republican Arnie at a prayer group meeting.
But the former Mr Universe and Hollywood star quickly hit back in a Facebook post.
He said: “Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. Then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”
It is not the first time Trump has taken on The Terminator star.
A few weeks before being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, Trump took to Twitter to mock his Apprentice successor.
In a pair of early morning tweets, Trump ripped into the actor-turned-politician, ridiculing viewing figures for the season premiere – and calling himself a “ratings machine” by comparison.
