The Wider Image: U.S. election: manufacturing the masks
A man makes a mask of U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at Jinhua Partytime Latex Art & Crafts Factory in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China, May 25, 2016. There's no masking the facts. One Chinese factory is expecting Donald Trump to beat his likely U.S. presidential rival Hilary Clinton in the popularity stakes. At the Jinhua Partytime Latex Art and Crafts Factory, a Halloween and party supply business that produces thousands of rubber and plastic masks of everyone from Osama Bin Laden to Spiderman, masks of Donald Trump and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton faces are being churned out. Sales of the two expected presidential candidates are at about half a million each but the factory management believes Trump will eventually run out the winner. "Even though the sales are more or less the same, I think in 2016 this mask will completely sell out," said factory manager Jacky Chen, indicating a Trump mask. The race for the White House may be far from over, but one Chinese mask factory is already calling the contest in favour of presumptive Republican candidate Donald Trump. At the Jinhua Partytime Latex Art & Crafts Factory, which produces rubbery masks of everyone from Osama Bin Laden to Spiderman, both Donald Trump and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton faces are being churned out. But while in terms of orders the two might currently be neck and neck at around half a million each, for the management, Trump is the clear winner. "Even though the sales are more or less the same, I think in 2016 this (the Trump) mask will completely sell out," said factory manager Jacky Chen.
