Donald Trump - the Halloween Mask

Despite his comments about Mexican immigrants and ideas about how he'll make the Mexican government pay for "the wall," Donald Trump's GOP front-runner status has managed to be positive for Mexico in at least one way: locally-made masks of his face are selling like hotcakes.

Caretas REV, a mask-making company in central Mexico, has produced tens of thousands of Trump masks since last fall, CNN Money reported.

The majority of those masks are sold in the United States, and the company expects orders to increase in coming months, co-owner Ricardo Esponda told CNN. The deluxe version of the latex mask, which comes with artificial hair, retails for $23 in the U.S., and the standard all-latex version is $19.95.

"We weren't making this mask with hair at first," Esponda said. "But some of our customers asked for it. It's got to have hair."

The company also makes Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama masks, but the Trump mask is the most popular by far. It's currently outsold only by a mask bearing the likeness of infamous drug cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, which comes with a striped prisoner's uniform.
