Video Clips Seem To Show President Trump Robbing ATMs

Surveillance footage of recent robberies at ATMs in Italy appeared to show a pair of Donald Trumps committing the crimes.

Police realized that the thieves had concealed their identities by wearing rubber masks created in the president’s image. La Stampa reported that officers solved the case, charging two brothers with taking more than $115,000 from dozens of cash machines in the Turin area of northwest Italy. The video footage included a clip of one of the men attempting to block a camera. However, he allegedly could still be seen setting up an explosive device in the lobby of a bank, lighting a fuse and moving out of the way as an ATM exploded.

Authorities declined to answer most of the questions reporters asked about the robberies, other than to reveal that the brothers are 31 and 27 years of age. Police said they had been monitoring the men’s actions for “several months.”

A Fox News affiliate noted that the videos resembled portions of “Point Break,” a 1991 movie in which characters put on masks resembling various former presidents to rob banks. According to police, the two brothers got inspiration from another film, “The Jackal,” which showed a man altering the color of his car to confuse law-enforcement officers. Mimicking the film, the suspects covered their white Audi with black paint.

Business Insider reported in May 2016 that Trump masks were becoming increasingly popular, as the New York City real-estate mogul was competing for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. An executive at the Jinhua Partytime Latex Art and Crafts factory in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, China, said Trump masks the facility created were selling at a brisker pace than those depicting his eventual general-election opponent, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. The factory makes thousands of rubber and plastic masks resembling various politicians and celebrities, ranging from Osama bin Laden to Spider Man. The disguises are intended for Halloween and parties.

The facility’s manager, Jacky Chen, said at the time that the company had sold about a half-million Trump masks and a similar number of those mocking Clinton. However, he predicted that by Election Day the Republican’s masks would prove to be the biggest seller. “Even though the sales are more or less the same, I think in 2016 this mask will completely sell out,” he said.

The price tag for the masks was between $4 and $5, making them accessible to just about anyone who wanted to spoof one of the White House hopefuls. Business Insider suggested that the Trump mask may have been more popular in the United States than in China. As a businessman and presidential candidate, Trump frequently criticized the Asian nation. He accused the Chinese government of carrying out an “economic war” against America by taking away U.S. jobs and engaging in dubious trade policies. Chinese Finance Minister Lou Jiwei, during an interview in April 2016, called Trump an “an irrational type.”

A reporter asked Liu Dahua, a 43-year-old employee at the factory, south of Shanghai, whether he realized whose image the Trump mask depicted. He replied: “It’s the president of the U.S., right?”
