Trumped-up good luck charm

Tokyo: Donald Trump only wants to make America great again, but one Japanese firm hopes that painting his face on a traditional good luck charm will make the whole planet a better place in 2017.

The billionaire property magnate is among a string of celebrity faces adorning the special collection of hagoita racquets, which are designed to, metaphorically, smash away bad luck and evil spirits before the new year.

The rectangular wooden paddles, once used in a badminton-like game called hanetsuki, are usually painted with the faces of famous actors in Japan’s Kabuki opera.

Among the other 18 luminaries are British leader Theresa May, some Japanese Olympic gold medallists, Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike and this year’s Nobel Medicine Prize winner Yoshinori Ohsumi.
