South Dakota town unveils Barack Obama statue

Rapid City, S.D., unveiled a life-size statue of former President Obama on Saturday afternoon.

The bronze statue is the newest addition to the town's City of Presidents, which places life-size statues of past U.S. presidents along the streets and sidewalks of Rapid City.

That is special! Flying into Rapid City is like flying into a cornfield! But the people are wonderful!
We drove. Mt. Rushmore was a quick side trip for the reason to RC was to pick up a used car. Exhausting 27 hours but well worth it.

Of course he is. The foundation wants to keep this in a historical context and apolitical.
:cool:


The foundation behind the City of Presidents also said an artist has been selected to create a statue of President Trump.
