Washington (eTruePolitics) – Against the advice of his closest aides, current president Donald Trump is set to unveil plans for a Russian-influenced redesign the Lincoln Memorial, sources close to the former reality TV star told eTruePolitics. The announcement could come as soon as Tuesday, the Fourth of July, according to one “horrified” source who provided an artist’s illustration of the proposed memorial.
Rumors that a Russian software firm was involved in the design were denied by beleaguered White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Conspiracy theorists point out that in the illustration Mr. Trump’s right foot is on top of the Declaration of Independence, a sign of disrespect that may have been included in the design as an inside joke by Russian president Vladimir Putin.
“We tried to convince Mr. Trump to hold off the announcement until we stopped making so many mistakes,” said a high-level staffer who requested anonymity because she feared for her life.
“But he won’t listen.”
