The former president was given the “Mount Trumpmore” piece by South Dakota governor Kristi Noem last year.  

The miniature has been made by Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby. Its provenance was confirmed to the Daily Beast. Leuning, a South Dakota artist, said, “Cool. That’s our piece. Definitely. That’s pretty cool.”  

Leuning was glad to see the maquette on display at Mar-a-Lago as often “stuff ends up in a closet”.  

In July 2020, Trump visited South Dakota for a speech in front of Mount Rushmore.
