In a photo shoot for Time, Trump agreed to pose with the most American of all animals - the Bald Eagle.

And while in the end he was able to get the perfect picture, the process was a bit more complicated with the bird getting a bit feisty on multiple occasions.

The bird, 27-year-old Uncle Sam, flapped his wings a bit too much while Trump held him on his arm, and then when he sat perched on the billionaire tycoon's desk appeared to try and bite his hand when he went to reach for the phone.

Trump took it all in stride however, telling the Time team after the shoot; 'What you will do for a cover - this bird is seriously dangerous but beautiful.'

Photographer Martin Schoeller said after the shoot; 'Every frame was the same. Mr. Trump knows exactly how he looks, and he strikes one pose and doesn't move.'

He later said of the other subject, Uncle Sam; 'He's very difficult to photograph. f you ask him to look up a little bit, he says no or he just doesn't do it.

  1. It makes me sad to see such a majestic creature being used for such nonsense.
    It's wrong.

    What would you expect from our National Bird that is tethered and vulnerable while being near a snake???

    It seems the eagle is a very good judge of character! Wealth buys you nothing in the animal kingdom! ☺😊☺

    Even the eagle can't take it anymore.
    Wake up America, you are now the monster you were born to fight.

    Do not tell me Time is putting that Nazi Trump on the cover as person of the year. How much did he pay them for that. Bernie Sanders clearly won the poll to be person of the year.

    The eagle didn't like that strange nest that the human had on his head

  10. Trump got nervous cause the guy almost takes his wig off lol

  11. I think there are no words needed to the actions of the wise bird

    I think the bald eagle was after his hair!

  13. The Eagle bated because Trump was tensed up and kept putting his hand upwards.It went for his hand because it thought he had food there. Perfectly normal behaviour for a falconers bird.
