British town will burn 36-foot Donald Trump statue

The British can’t vote in U.S. elections, but they can burn a giant statue of a presidential candidate.

And that’s exactly what the Edenbridge Bonfire Society will do as part of an annual celebration.

The society, which was founded in 1928, hosts a bonfire of sorts every year around Nov. 5 to honor Guy Fawkes failed attempt to destroy Parliament in 1605.

A 36-foot statue of Donald Trump holding what appears to be Hillary Clinton's head will ablaze alongside a figure of Fawkes, a staple of the celebration, which also includes fireworks and a parade, according to AP.

Last year, the group burned a statue of FIFA president Sepp Blatter. Other past figures include Lance Armstrong and Wayne Rooney.
