Louis Tussaud's Waxworks pulled the figure from public view after it sustained multiple beatings, and transferred it into storage.

The scratches on the Trump figure's face were especially damaging, said Clay Stewart, the regional manager of parent company Ripley's Entertainment.

"When it's a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem," Stewart said, according to the Express-News.

The effigy of the former president likely won't return to the display floor until the new wax figure of President Biden is added into the rotation. It's currently still under production in Orlando, Fla., Stewart notes.

Following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Trump left office with record low approval ratings. A February poll from YouGov and The Economist found that Trump was named the worst president in U.S. history.

His base has remained strong in the two months since he left the White House, however. Trump is the top contender for a 2024 presidential GOP race, with a recent survey obtained by The Hill finding that he gets the support of 51 percent of GOP voters ahead of the upcoming primaries.

The same survey revealed that 88 percent of voters registered Republicans or who affiliate as Republicans approve of Trump's presidency.

a mini torch and/or some assorted cutlery would've been more artistic.

88% of GOPERS approve of Trump.  Banking on the 'last orange hope' is assumed.  Also assume they are still being grifted.

As for those who disapprove of The Man from Mar-a-Lago is a sustaining factor of redemption for America.

None the less, it is disrespectful to deface public property.
