Despite how their government may feel about President Donald Trump, not all Chinese are mad at the U.S. president.  Many, though, are mad about Trump-look-alike balloons!  Huh?

Forget the masks and toilet paper rolls; the latest Chinese manufacturer to cash in on the Trump train is a balloon factory.  

To welcome in the Year of the Rooster, a Chinese balloon factory created giant inflatable rooster balloons crowned with Trump’s signature “golden mane.”  The inflatables don’t come cheap either.  A 30-ft version, available through Taobao, will set you back USD 3,000.  A smaller 6-ft version can be had for USD 52.
