Some online buyers have even joked that Trump can be “so useful” when cleaning their bathroom.
The ‘Trump’ toilet brushes cost around 20 yuan or £2 and are popular on Taobao, the Chinese equivalent to eBay.
They come complete with a cartoon figurine – with an uncanny resemblance to Trump – that has plenty of bright orange hair, used to scrub dirt off the toilet.
One seller on Taobao is even chucking in a free roll of toilet paper with Trump’s face on for those who buy the ‘Trump’ loo brushes.
The Trump brushes have gained hundreds of new fans in China amid the trade battle with the US.
TRADE BATTLE WITH CHINA
The US President has complained about China’s trading practices since before he took office in 2016.
Last week, Trump announced sweeping increases on tariffs against Chinese goods.
The US raised tariffs on $200bn of Chinese products to 25 per cent from 10 per cent.
China retaliated, but officials say the countries are still talking.
Tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, in theory, make US-made products cheaper than imported ones, and encourage consumers to buy American.
Amid the growing tensions, Chinese people have retaliated by buying up hundreds of Trump toilet brushes.
‘MAKE YOUR TOILET GREAT AGAIN’
This is not the first time the scrubbers have hit the headlines, as they were first seen being sold by a New Zealand Etsy shop in November last year.
According to the description for Trump toilet brush affectionately dubbed “Commander In C***,” the 15-inch handmade brush comes with a holder.
“Make Your Toilet Great Again!” the description reads.

“No president has had a Toilet Brush like my Toilet Brush!
“I am automatically attracted to toilet bowls, I just start scrubbing, I just kiss, I don’t even wait and when you’re a toilet brush they let you do it. DJT.”
The description also notes that the president may “appear useful” while you’re scrubbing the rim of your toilet bowl.
