This Mexican magazine gave Donald Trump's face the perfect makeover

After asserting that its immigrants are "rapists" and "murderers" and insisting that the country will pay for the border wall he plans to build, it's fair to say Donald Trump isn't the most popular man in Mexico.

The sense of dislike between the presidential nominee and one of his country's most important neighbours was extended further on Friday by the release of the latest Letras Libres magazine...

The cover of the monthly literary magazine features a portrait of Trump with the words "Fascista Americano" (American fascist) in black ink placed over his philtrum.

Enrique Krauze, the director of the magazine, has been a repeated critic of Trump during the presidential campaign.

In an article for Slateearlier this month detailing Trump's meeting with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, Krauze wrote:

Donald Trump is a sociopath drunk on himself. His religion is hatred. His god is Donald Trump. He is also addicted to empty adjectives. He is not a man of his word or of words as markers of truth. If he wins the presidency (which seems improbable), the Mexican government will have to weigh the dimensions of this historic error, widely denounced in Mexico all across the political spectrum.
