Here's what happens when the internet gets its hands on a picture of a Paris poubelle that looks like Donald Trump.

Almost three years ago to the day, Tweeter Thomas Regembal (@stom01) shared a picture of a street bin in Belleville, Paris, that he thought looked amusing, presumably because the cardbox looked like a face.

The tweet, embedded below, amassed a mere 19 retweets over the past three years.

But when the internet realized the bin bore an unmistakeable resemblance to US President Donald Trump, the same photo has been plastered across websites the world over. 

Photoshop users have since had their fun with the image, spurred on by the likes of social news aggregation site Reddit and The Poke.

Here are some of the best images of the Donald Trump Paris poubelle, that we couldn't resist sharing.
