DONALD TRUMP has said he thinks it would be a fine idea to carve his face into Mt Rushmore.
The President had initially taken to Twitter to debunk a story ran by the New York Times over the weekend, which claimed he wanted to add his own glorious mug to the famous mountain, but admitted that despite the story being untrue, he rather liked the idea.
"This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN," he wrote.
"Never suggested it although, based on all the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me."

Mt Rushmore, located in South Dakota, features the faces of four American Presidents; George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.
The initial story had said that Trump had spoken with Kristi Noem, Governor of South Dakota, about the possibility of adding his face to the side of the cliff.
The President travelled to South Dakota to celebrate Independence Day on July 4, and Ms Noem reportedly presented him with a four-foot replica of Mt Rushmore (his face hadn't been added).
