The Boston Globe has printed a satirical front page complete with fake stories that show how "troubling" a Donald Trump presidency would be for America.

The newspaper's front page is dated April 9, 2017, and its lead story is about Trump calling for deportations. Another article mentions work being halted on a wall at the Mexico border.

There's also a short item about backlash Trump received after tweeting a photo of his new dog he named "Madame Peng", after China's first lady Peng Liyuan.
