A restaurant owner in Dohuk, Iraq is so happy Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election he decided to name his restaurant after the incoming president.

Nadyar Zawiti is an Iraqi Kurd and is the owner of Trump Fish. The president-elect's face is even part of the restaurant's logo:

The only thing is it appears the depiction of Trump was lifted from another website, which ran a story in late 2015 that poked fun at Trump by redesigning every NFL team's logo using his face or variations of things he has said. In this case, the San Diego Chargers' lightning bolt serves as Trump's hair and eyebrows.

The restaurant opened in early December and sells fire-roasted carp. Dohuk is about an hour from Mosul.

"What I admire about Trump's personality is that he's decisive, he's tough, and hopefully with that toughness he'll finish ISIS off," Zawiti told CNN.

Zawiti told the network he would someday like to have a Trump Fish near the White House in Washington.

In an earlier interview with Reuters, Zawiti said Trump is a beloved figure in Iraqi Kurdistan.

"I personally love Trump for this," Zawiti said of Trump's promise to support Kurds and their peshmerga fighters. "The name Trump is beloved in Kurdistan."
