A Dublin pub has decorated its urinal with a portrait of Republican candidate Donald Trump.

The newly-opened Adelphi pub on Abbey Street said they haven’t received any complaints about the urinal but would take it down if the Republican candidate was elected President in November.

“We’ve only received positive feedback from the public,” a member of staff at the Adelphi.

Tony McCabe , Manger of Adelphi bar, said: "The reason we put a photo of Donald Trump on our urinal seems very simple to us.

"In our opinion Mr Trump has preached much hate in his statements. Irish bars are well known for there debates and chatter and politics plays a big part in those conversations, therefore we felt that the only place Mr Trump's opinion mattered was on the wall of a urinal .

"If he is elected President we shall remove the image immediately as we feel that this would be disrespectful to the American people and to the office of the presidency."

The pub is now looking for suggestions for the ladies’ bathroom.

This is not the first time Donald Trump's image has made its way into restrooms.

Chinese manufacturers are cashing in on toilet paper featuring the Republican candidate's portrait.
