The ‘Trump fan’ taking Mexican wrestling by storm

Sam Polinsky is an American wrestler who joined the Lucha Libre wrestling circuit in Mexico City. In the ring, he adopts the character of a flag-waving fan of US President Donald Trump.

Polinsky explains why Mexicans have taken to his character at a time when the two countries are at odds over President Trump’s plan to build a border wall.
