This Is How Media Around the World Reacted to 'Madman' Trump's Victory

6 Ways Conservatives and the GOP Created Their Nominee Donald Trump (Reason)

After his decisive triumph over Sen. Ted Cruz in Indiana on Tuesday, Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee in this year's presidential election. And the rest of the world is aghast at the brash mogul's rise.

"The specter of a contested convention fell away and the Republican primary was a one-man show," wrote Guardian columnist Lucia Graves. "A big, orange, frightening one-man show."

The new reality is still sinking in.

"So this Wednesday morning, Europe wakes up to Donald Trump across the Atlantic as the presumptive Republican nominee," wrote the left-of-center French daily Liberation. "A man who many considered just a few months ago as a clown. Many voters vote Trump precisely because he has no political experience and has never held elected office."

Contemplating the "craziest U.S. presidential election campaign" that awaits, Germany's conservative Die Welt declared "the unthinkable has come to pass."

...An editorial in Mexico's El Universal weighed the prospect of Trump's presidential campaign:

"Many Mexicans might be stunned by the success of a man who has said so many absurd things — from the mad idea of building a wall on the border with Mexico and making this country pay for it, to the concept that global warming was invented by the Chinese to hurt the competitiveness of the U.S. manufacturing sector," the editorial noted. "Nonetheless, just as in Mexico people are tired of traditional politicians, the same thing is occurring in the United States. Being distant from the 'establishment,' the political elites in Washington, is in itself a virtue that is more important than other defects."
