US President Donald Trump has denied reports that he allegedly wanted his face added to a memorial with four prominent presidents on mount Rushmore.

He called such news “fictional” from journalists of the “failed” newspaper The New York Times and the TV channel “with poor ratings” CNN.

“I never suggested this, however, based on everything that has been achieved in the first three and a half years, perhaps even more than in any other presidency, it sounds like a good idea!” the us leader wrote on Twitter on Monday, August 10.

Sources also told the newspaper that in July, trump visited South Dakota and received a gift of a mini-copy of the monument with the addition of his face.
