Newspapers across the globe have reacted to Donald Trump’s US presidential elections with a mixture of glee, shock and sheer dread.
Some of the most dramatic headlines in the history of journalism were made as the entire world went berserk after the election results were released. Here’s a selection of headlines that made the covers of international newspapers on the day America chose Donald Trump to be their 45th president.
Starting with the New Zealand Herald, who chose to use Obama’s iconic ‘Yes We Can’ logo to satirise the election outcome.
Sydney’s The Daily Telegraph went all-out special with a comic headline of three letters: W.TF. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what that means…
The French Canadian newspaper couldn’t even express their utter shock in French and chose a crystal clear headline in English instead. LOL.
Belgian newspaper, L’Echo couldn’t quite express themselves in French either. American Psycho pretty much sums up how Belgium is feeling right now.
Over to France, the left-wing Parisian newspaper believe Trump’s election will lead to the start of the end of the world.
Over in the UK, national newspaper, The Sun, toy with The Simpson’s episode in which it was jokingly predicted that Donald Trump would someday become president.
The Daily Mirror went dark with their front page, depicting the State of Liberty with its head in its hands, as it asks the nation “what have they done?”
Over to New York, where the Daily News had raised a down turned American flag as a sign of sheer national desperation.
Well, the Mexicans are probably feeling like the cover of their newspaper, El Gráfico, at the moment.
The Expressen of Sweden kept it simple with one word: shock.
Authoritative Mexican newspaper, El Financeiro, were also too stunned for words and kept their headline as simple as Sweden’s.
Canada’s Calagary Sun takes it back to The Apprentice.
