An admirer of Donald Trump's "strong leadership" and "bold attitude" in Telangana, has erected a six-foot-tall statue of the US president at his home, and worships him like a "god".

As tensions over trade-related issues heat up between India and the US, Bussa Krishna, a 32-year-old farmer from Konne village in Jangaon district, unveiled the Trump statue and applied 'tilak' and garlanded it before performing "Abhishekam" and "Aarti" by chanting "Jai Jai Trump."

Krishna said he 'worships' Trump, because he is a strong leader and he likes his bold attitude.

He said he wants to meet Trump some day.

His mother said Krishna spent Rs 1.3 lakh to install the statue, and even organised feast for villagers.

On June 14, when Trump celebrated his 73rd birthday, Krishna pasted a poster of the US president outside his home to wish him.

Next week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting India, and in his preview to the visit he has said the US is "open" to discuss trade issues, but has also pushed India to give American firms access to local markets.
