As the U.S. celebrated its Independence Day and President Trump vowed to punish those who destroy U.S. monuments, a life-sized sculpture of first lady Melania Trump was burned near her hometown in Slovenia, the Reuters news agency reported.

Brad Downey, the Berlin-based American artist who commissioned the sculpture, told Reuters that police told him what happened the day following the incident. The wooden sculpture, he told Reuters, was blackened and disfigured.

"I want to know why they did it," Downey said. He told Reuters that he had hoped the sculpture of Mrs. Trump would spark conversation about political issues in the U.S., namely regarding immigration. Downey said he filed a police report and is hoping to interview the person or people who burned the sculpture for a film he is working on
