USA – Following the election of Donald Trump, France addresses official requests for the repatriation of the Statue of Liberty
New York — Less than one month after the election of Donald Trump, France made good on its threat. In reaction against Mr Trump's presidency, the Statue of Liberty will have to be dismantled and shipped back to France for an indefinite period of time.
“We had made it clear, so now the Statue of Liberty shall return to its home country” restated French foreign affairs minister Jean-Marc Ayrault in an interview to newspaper Le Monde. In the hours preceding the election, France had clearly stated its intention to bring the Statue of Liberty back home as an act of defiance towards Mr Trump. “The Statue will be put in bond in France, possibly displayed in a public place or in a large square” Ayrault added. “We could not afford to leave such a symbol in the hands of someone whose sentiments sullied it.” The dismantling and transportation of the statue would be “the financial responsibility of the United States because” he concluded rather coldly, “they really had it coming.”
