A giant, inflatable chicken that appears to resemble US President Donald Trump has been spotted near the White House in Washington, DC.

The blown up fowl, complete with Trump-esque hair, is being used to draw attention to President Trump's taxes.

It is the brainchild of Taran Singh Brar, who also set up a GoFundMe page for his project.

He says: "We think the coward squawking in the White House is too chicken to show his tax returns, too chicken to stand up to Putin, and too chicken to face the press.

"We've been inflating Chicken Don in his backyard so he knows no one is scared but him."

Don Chicken has previously made appearances at a tax march in San Francisco, California and near Trump Tower in New York.

Mr Trump has refused to publicly release his past tax returns.

Although he released a 98-page financial disclosure form in June about his general wealth.

Well we know he spends some of it on chicken...
