Roald Dahl’s Matilda confronts Trump in Statue

A statue of Donald Trump has gone face-to-face with a formidable new critic — the classic British children’s character Matilda.

A statue of the intrepid schoolgirl staring down a likeness of the US President has been erected to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of Roald Dahl’s 1988 novel.
A poll found that Trump was the figure the British public believed Matilda would be most likely to confront today.
Trump was chosen by 42% of respondents in a survey of over 2,000 Brits, with UK Prime Minister Theresa May earning 21% of votes and TV presenter Piers Morgan receiving 16%.
The statue, erected outside the author’s museum and former home in Buckinghamshire, England, reimagines Matilda in her 30s and attempts to show what the schoolgirl would be doing now.
