Reality TV star Donald Trump has been dealt a devastating blow - a doll modelled on the property tycoon is proving to be unpopular with discerning shoppers in New York City.

Originally costing $25 (GBP14), the city's prestigious department store Macy's currently has piles of the dolls - which utter 17 different Trump soundbites including his catchphrase, "You're fired!" - at the bargain price of $2.49 (GBP1.40).

However, a spokesman for the store tells website, "We have Donald Trump suits and watches and shirts and they are all doing phenomenal business. Men want to dress like Donald Trump."
