Mexicans don’t like Trump – level 2
Burning effigies are part of the Mexican Holy Week. Traditionally, they represent Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus Christ. However, effigies are often modelled on unpopular political figures. And there is no one more unpopular in Mexico than Donald Trump.
People hung the effigy in the air and put fireworks inside it. It moved around as the fireworks blew up. In the end, Trump’s head exploded.
One Mexican, who came out for the celebrations, said that Mexico is truly tired of Trump´s nonsense. The people hope that he will not become the next president of the USA.
Difficult words: effigy (a model of a person), betray (to do something bad against a friend or a relative), figure (a person).
