A Trump doll will be sold in Japan to honor 'Girls Day'


A traditional Japanese doll modeled after President Trump is being sold for 'Girls Day' in Japan.

The doll was unveiled Thursday by Kyugetsu CO Ltd, a maker of Japanese traditional "hina" dolls for the March 3 holiday, which is celebrated by families who decorate their homes with 2 foot high dolls to wish their daughters health and happiness, Reuters reported.

The Trump doll is clad in a gold and black kimono with a golden-haired head.

Debbie Walker, a tourist from Ohio, told Reuters she was not thrilled about a doll representing Trump, who bragged about groping women in a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone with former Access Hollywood TV host, Billy Bush.

“He is not for women or little girls, so I do not support him,” said Walker.

There is talk about his derogatory comments about women, but we made this in the hope that he will make the world better
Hisatoshi Yokoyama, senior vice-president of Kyugetsu

Kyugetsu creates "hina" dolls every year for 'Girls Day' modeled after four influential people : two athletes and two politicians. 

Last year, they made a doll of Hillary Clinton as one of the "new leaders" expected to lead the world in 2016.
