Huge demand for Trump masks selling like hotcakes

Rubber masks of president-elect Donald Trump are flying off the shelves. And a factory in Japan is struggling to cope with the demand.
Employees at the Ogawa Studio in Saitama are working non-stop to catch up with a surge of orders for Trump masks following the US election.
The factory is trying to produce as many as 350 masks a day.
That compares with about 45 before the election.
This is the only location in Japan that makes the rubber masks which cost about $22 bucks.
The factory also produces masks of Hillary Clinton, President Obama, as well as Japanese politicians and celebrities.
