'What If Trump?' - The World Starts To Wonder

Die Presse, March 2, 2016

Austrian daily Die Presse went for an ominous-looking front page Wednesday, asking "What if Donald Trump ...," as it imagines what a Trump presidency would entail. Building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border; a more hostile relationship with China; abolishing Obamacare; using torture methods to help defeat ISIS: The Austrian daily analyses four of Donald Trump's most controversial, proposals, as it becomes increasingly possible that he will be the Republican presidential candidate.

Indeed such a scenario crept closer, after the real estate tycoon scored big in his party's biggest day of primaries on Super Tuesday.

Trump and Hillary Clinton moved closer to a presidential face-to-face, with Trump winning seven states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia) and Clinton seven (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia) on Tuesday's balloting.

On the Republican side, Ted Cruz won his home state of Texas and Oklahoma while Marco Rubio garnered his first victory in Minnesota, Reuters reports.

On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders won his home state of Vermont along with Colorado, Minnesota and Oklahoma.

So far, 15 states have chosen their candidates, and 35 are yet to vote.
