Mexicans on Trump’s election: ‘The power he has over us is terrifying’

President-elect Donald Trump has promised to build a wall along the border between the US and Mexico. After his electoral triumph over Hillary Clinton, many are wondering whether he’ll actually pull this off, or any of his other controversial pledges.

Mexicans, along with many other minorities in the US, were railed against by Trump during his campaign. In the run-up to the election, he vowed to rid the US of “bad hombres”. Yet despite this adding to his record of xenophobic language, Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States.
