Mexicans don’t like Trump – level 1

05-04-2016 15:00

This news is from Mexico. During the Holy Week, people burn effigies. The effigies symbolise Judas. They can also symbolise unpopular politicians.

Donald Trump is very unpopular in Mexico. People burn his effigy. There are fireworks inside the effigy. They burn. In the end, Trump’s head explodes.

Mexicans are tired of Trump. They hope that he does not become the present of the USA.

Difficult words: effigy (a model of a person), politician (a person in politics – one of many leaders in a country), tired of (when people do not like something anymore).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
