A museum in Texas says it has removed a wax statue of former President Trump to avoid repeated vandalism by patrons.

Louise Tussaud's waxworks, a museum that houses wax statues of famous people, said it removed the statue after it was repeatedly scratched and hit, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

"When it's a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem," said Clay Stewart, the regional manager for the museum owner: Ripley Entertainment.

Stewart said the statue would return once the museum unveils an updated statue of Joe Biden as president.
