Statue of Liberty and A Statue of Trump.

WASHINGTON D. C., USA -- The White House has confirmed it will be recommending the removal of the Statue of Liberty and shipping it back to France. This is retaliation for French President Emmanuel Macron's recent insults to President Donald Trump's feelings.

The French-made statue by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and Gustave Eiffel was erected in 1886 in New York's harbour. Now the American government says it has to go for two good reasons: It isn't American and gives immigrants the wrong idea that they are now welcome in the USA.

"The Liberty Statue is an insult to our country," said Trump's spokesman Steven 'the Viper' Miller. "She's French and ugly. What we should have is something more fitting for our country. I am sure there are plenty of good replacements we can find."

Some of the ideas include a statue to Ivanka Trump and Sarah Palin but President Trump is likely to pick a monument of himself to stand on the empty plinth.
