Trump campaign vows to defend Christ the Redeemer statue from vandalism

President Trump’s reelection campaign claimed in a series of ads that the administration would protect Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer statue from potential destruction by vandals. The ad featured a graphic with an image of the statue above the text, ’WE WILL PROTECT THIS’. The ad encourages Americans to sign up with the campaign to signal their support. A clarification from the campaign is awaited.

I mean I am glad but the USA can't really do much to protect a statue in Brazil. Have there been any threats to tear down the statue by people in Brazil?

I think all countries have a duty to try and protect wonders. I would want someone to step in if the Egyptians decided to demolish the sphynx or if the UK decided to tear down Stonehenge. Honestly, when we heard about the Taliban destroying artefacts in Iraqi museums we should have saved those relics and brought them to western museums to protect them.

Would be interesting to know the thought here? As if there's a dearth of statues warranting protection within the US. Unless someone actually believes this statue is in the US! That would be worrying
