Speaking to media, the die-hard follower said that he had become a big fan of POTUS for his straight forward approach ever since he became President. Explaining his love for Trump, Krishna told Telangana Today, "When I started offering prayers to Trump’s portrait at home, people laughed at me and some of them even advised me to visit a psychiatrist. But I know that my mental health is perfectly all right and I love to worship Trump.”
Krishna now wishes to meet Trump and make him aware of his adoration for him. “I am praying the god to see that I meet my ‘god’ at least once. I would like to tonsure my hair after meeting Trump,” he said. The statue which cost him over 2000 dollars was sculpted in Kolanpak.
