Krishna, who died of heart attack in October 2020, is reported to be the first man who made a statue of Trump and turned his puja room into a temple for the American president in 2018.

“I am a big fan of him (Donald Trump) and I support him. I have started sculpting the statue of Trump from January 3, 2022 and completed the statue on June 2, last,” 23-year-old Paiasesful Pachiang, told UNI.

“I started to make this statue because I have been a big fan of him (Donald Trump) since the 2016 US Presidential election. He (Trump) is a “wiseman” and “God-fearing” president of the United States,” he said.

On January 20, 2017 Trump was sworn-in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

A 3rd Semester BA.LLB student of Shillong Law College, who also works as a bell-ringer at Presbyterian Church in Moolamylliang, has been saving money to make the statue with the hope that one day his work would be acknowledged by Donald Trump himself. “I have spent around Rs 37,000 on sculpting the statue of Donald Trump. My mother was upset with me, but she is happy seeing that I have completed making the statue of Donald Trump,” he said.

Pachiang felt that his journey taught him many things, including patience and courage.

“I wish to meet him (Donald Trump) someday. In future I want to become like him and serve India,” Pachiang said.

Pachiang, whose dream of becoming the Prime Minister of India in the future, said, “India has produced many world leaders who come from poor families and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a perfect example. I also come from a financially-backward family and I hope one fine day I will also be elected as Prime Minister,” he said.
