An entrepreneurial furniture-maker in China borrowed Donald Trump’s by turning the testy and ill-tempered ex-leader into a Buddha-like statue.
Listed as the Trump Buddha statue on Taobao and marketed with the slogan, “Make your company great again!” It is available in two sizes of 16cm and 46cm with the price of 999 yuan (RM632) and 3,999 yuan (RM2531) respectively.
With the signature position, it has Trump’s hands folded in his laps, thumbs pointing outwards – it signifies meditation and contemplation.
The seller based Xiamen, Fujian province. She said that customers bought “dozens” of the 100 statues. A buyer turned it into a humble reminder not to be “too Trump”. The public knows the former president’s personality with his short-temper and no filter. The 74-year-old left the White House in January for his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Florida.
Trump’s name can be rendered in two ways in Chinese. One way is 特朗普 (tèlǎngpǔ). The other way is 川普 (chuānpǔ). Therefore, plenty of sellers use these names to sell merchandise and capitalising Trump’s face on it such as models, facemasks, hats, socks.
Canada Bans Flights From India And Pakistan For 30 Days
OTTAWA, April 23 – Canada announced a 30-day ban on all flights from India and Pakistan effective Thursday as COVID-19 cases continue surging in the two countries, reported Xinhua news agency.
“Given the higher number of cases of COVID-19 detected in air passengers arriving in Canada from India and Pakistan, Transport Canada is issuing a notice to airmen, or NOTAM, to halt direct passenger air traffic from those countries,” said Canadian Transport Minister Omar Alghabra at a joint press conference with other Canadian ministers on Thursday.
The minister said the ban is implemented as more passengers arrive in Canada with positive test results from those two South Asian countries.
If travellers departing from those two countries take an indirect route home, they will be required to show a negative PCR test at their last point of departure. Once they arrive in Canada, they will follow the standard protocols, unless exempt, including taking another test and booking a stay at a designated government hotel while they await their results.
Health Minister Patty Hajdu said the ban will allow Canada’s public health experts to collect more data about the epidemiology in those regions.
“I want to say that our hearts are with the citizens of India, Pakistan, indeed the whole region during these incredibly difficult times. In the meantime, we’ll continue to apply stringent testing and quarantine measures for all passengers arriving in Canada,” she said.
In a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier on Thursday, Both Ontario Premier Doug Ford and Quebec Premier Francois Legault called on the Trudeau government to cut the number of international flights arriving in Canada and impose greater restrictions at the Canada-U.S. land border.
Also on Thursday, the House of Commons passed a motion to have the government immediately suspend non-essential passenger flights from countries with high rates of COVID-19 variants infections.
Man Cheats On 35 Women By Becoming Their Lover, Just To Get Birthday Gift
A Japanese man has been arrested after cheating on 35 women at the same time, to get a gift for his birthday. The 39-year-old would try to approach women and pretend to want to make them his girlfriend, just to get a gift in conjunction with his birthday.
The suspect from Kansai, Japan will give each of his ‘lovers’ a different ‘birthday’ date.
According to a report, the total number of women who became victims was 35 but it was reported that the actual number of victims exceeded that number.
He told one of his 47-year-old victims that his birthday was Feb. 22.
Meanwhile, another 40-year-old victim claimed he told her that his birthday was in July and a 35-year-old woman said that she thought the man’s birthday was in April.
His actual birthday falls on November 13th.
He not only cheated the women in terms of cash, as well as some expensive clothes for one of his birthdays, but he also managed to sell some of the toiletries he sold, all for a profit.
It is believed that he is targeting single women, starting a relationship by indicating that he wants to get married at some point later.
The man’s actions were then uncovered after all the women who were his victims ‘cooperated’ and then reported his cunning tactics to the police last February.
The suspect allegedly deceived all his victims where it was reported that the result of his fraud reached 100,000 yen including gifts, clothes, and cash.
