Often times, Pakistani people like to keep up with the trends as well. To do that, they adopt the most ridiculous methods — custom number plates is one of them.
After the death of Muhammad Ali, the famous Muslim boxer, this number plate was seen roaming around the streets of Islamabad.
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”, reads the number plate.
Trump, the New York born celebrity became a prominent presidential candidate after his “bold” debates, which were deemed as offensive by some and rightly so.
On November 9th, Trump was confirmed as the U.S. president after beating Hilary Clinton, who was the favorite to win the elections when the presidential campaigns started.
