Recently Trump did a photo shoot with America’s national symbol, but unfortunately, the two did not get along.

It was during a Time magazine cover story with a bald eagle named Uncle Sam that some feathers, and hair, were ruffled.

It seems that Uncle Sam has quite the temperament and was not interested in taking pictures with the presidential hopeful. The bird snapped at Trump several times and seemed a little irritated throughout the event.

Uncle Sam’s owner, Jonathon Wood, says “It takes a little courage to work with a bird like that. He is the most difficult bird I have to work with."

According to Wood, Uncle Sam the eagle was hit by a car more than 20 years ago and Wood helped rehabilitate him. Now, at 27 years old, he's blind in one eye and off balance.

But it’s not the first time Uncle Sam has been testy with someone. It turns out that he’s also snapped at Stephen Colbert and Bill Clinton.

"Yeah, he's an equal opportunity biter,” said Wood.
