A model of a hot air-blowing Donald Trum and another of a toothy Hillary Clinton riding the Democratic Party's donkey mascot are among the skeletons and zombies in a Halloween display that has become an attraction and is stopping traffic in a Connecticut town.
History professor Matt Warshauer of West Hartford is using his annual Halloween extravaganza to make a political statement.
Prof Warshauer had been planning the display for months before erecting it.
'We were all immigrants'. A skeleton holds a sign referring to Donald Trump's proposals to curb illegal immigration to the USA.

In the Halloween display, Bernie Sanders is jailed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
Warshaues said he hoped people took it in the spirit of Halloween. 'I'm having a little fun and making a political statement,' he said.
'It's a crazy presidential election where it seems politics are out of control,' said Warshauer, who teaches at Central Connecticut State University. 'I am making a statement about both parties, the Republican and the Democratic party, but my primary concern is Donald Trump as a president.'
