Aerial photos of the display show the fowl, known as "Trump Chicken" or "Chicken Don", standing on the plot of land south of the White House called the Ellipse.

"He's too afraid to release his tax returns, too afraid to stand up to [Russian President] Vladimir Putin and playing chicken with North Korea", he said.

Although Trump is now on vacation at his New Jersey golf resort for 17 days, and will not be able to see the chicken staring him down in the Oval Office, Twitter mused about the crowds who flocked to take photos.

While the president and his administration have been battling allegations of collaborating with Russian Federation to tilt the 2016 elections and now a sabre-rattling contest with North Korea, the chicken brought some humour to an otherwise often tense exchange of politics on Twitter.

"I think what the president was doing was sending a strong message with language that [North Korean leader] Kim Jong-Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language", Tillerson added.

The giant chicken inflatable is mass produced in China to celebrate the Year of Rooster, which is a celebration that comes in every 12-year cycle.

Jacksonville responded by selecting Alabama left tackle Cam Robinson in the second round of the National Football League draft. He was due a base salary of $8.875 million in 2017 and $9.575 million in 2018, though none of that money was guaranteed.

Later, an activist in San Francisco came up with the idea of purchasing such chicken props for using them in the tax march, Jennifer Taub, a professor at Vermont Law School, said.

The Trump White House reportedly received another, "Thanks, but no thanks" response from a high-profile player who has passed on a senior administration position.

This particular chicken was designed by Casey Latiolais, an artist from Seattle.

"The president can either drive or be driven by events; it's time for him to drive them".

The inflatable chicken, about 13-feet-tall, also became the go-to symbol during nationwide tax marches on April 15, which targeted Trump's unwillingness to release his tax information.

However, the origin of the giant inflatable chicken actually doesn't involve Trump at all. The President wants a military parade so we're going to give it to him. A 10-foot Trump chicken sells for $500, reports said.
