Given his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again,” it seems only fitting that Donald Trump would pose with a bald eagle named Uncle Sam for a magazine photo shoot.
TIME magazine had the 27-year-old eagle flown from Texas to the Manhattan office building where the real estate mogul and GOP presidential hopeful has his office overlooking Central Park. According to an article in The Daily Mail about the rather unusual photo session with the stately old bird (referring to the eagle, of course), the TIME photographer found the human subject much easier to work with.
“And while the wild raptor proved difficult to keep in line, photographer Martin Schoeller admits Trump and his signature ‘blue steel’ gaze remained unchanged in every single frame,” reports The Daily Mail.

“‘Every frame was the same,’ Schoeller told TIME. ‘Mr. Trump knows exactly how he looks, and he strikes one pose and doesn’t move.'”
