Trump visits Mexico, hilarity ensues

Owners of a Halloween mask factory in Jiutepec, Mexico, told CNN's Rafael Romo earlier this year that they were busier than ever, thanks to Trump.

Trump's fame in the United States -- and infamy in Mexico -- drove demand for an unflattering Trump mask, which picked up last fall when it became clear that the Republican presidential candidate was a serious contender.

"We weren't making this mask with hair at first," co-owner Ricardo Esponda told CNN, "but some of our customers asked for it. It's got to have hair."

But for some Mexicans, Trump's proposals are no laughing matter.

Several families told CNN's Rosa Flores last month they were terrified by Trump's proposal to cut off money transfers from the US to Mexico.

"It's not right," Martha Mendoza said as she cooked tortillas at her home in the town of Francisco Villa.

Town leader Jaime Leon said he was worried about the future of his small village.

"Francisco Villa, without money transfers (from the US), will drown," he said. "It will downward spiral."

(Those money transfers are from U.S. citizens to their families in Mexico, by the way.)

“As man advances in civilization, and small tribes are united into larger communities, the simplest reason would tell each individual that he ought to extend his social instincts and sympathies to all members of the same nation, though personally unknown to him. This point being once reached, there is only an artificial barrier to prevent his sympathies extending to the men of all nations and races.”

Most couldn't cope without them.
