This fall, you’ll see candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the news, on TV—and out trick-or-treating! Costume companies have been capitalizing on the election by creating thousands of rubber masks of the presidential hopefuls.
As of May, the Jinhua Partytime Latex Art and Crafts Factory in China, had sold about 500,000 masks of the candidates. Worldwide sales are expected to soar in the weeks leading up to Halloween. That means you may see many Clintons and Trumps canvassing for candy this year.
Crafts Factory manager Jacky Chen predicted Trump would beat Clinton in mask sales, and that Trump’s mask would sell out completely. But only time will tell who will win the real race in November.
