The last surviving naked statue of the current President of the United States, Donald Trump, has finally met its owner for $28,000. The statue of Trump in his birthday suit is all set to travel to Las Vegas after being sold at an auction.
Julien’s Auctions announced it on their Twitter page that it sold the larger-than-life piece called as “The Emperor Has No Balls” to Zak Bagans, a paranormal investigator, and host of Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures.” The word has it that Bagans will keep the statue on display at a Haunted Museum.

The most controversial statue is the last sculpture that has not been vandalized or destroyed. The piece of art came into the public eye across the US, weeks before Trump was sworn into office. Originally, there were four other pieces which were reportedly confiscated and destroyed. The sole surviving copy was rescued by La Luz de Jesus Gallery on Hollywood Boulevard before it could be taken and melted down.
In November 2016, one of the statues was offered on eBay with a buy-it-now price of $50,000 — but no one was willing to get their hands on the president-elect for even a starting bid of $10,000.
