• Riots, deportations ‘Trump presidency’


    WASHINGTON: Mass deportations, riots and a looming trade war: The Boston Globe on Sunday ran a fake front page imagining the state of America under a Donald Trump presidency – and denouncing his “deeply disturbing” vision. Posted in the US newspaper’s idea section alongside an op-ed with the title “The GOP must stop Trump,” the mockup appeared three months before the Republican Party convention confirms its White House nominee. “Deportations to begin,” ran the Globe’s fictitious headline, dated April 9, 2017, above a spoof article about Trump’s push to expel more than 11 million undocumented immigrants – sparking nationwide riots and curfews. A number of mainstream US newspapers, from The New York Times to The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post have taken strong positions in their editorial pages against Trump’s election bid, urging Republicans to reject the populist rhetoric against migrants, Muslims or women that has fueled his campaign.
