Boston: The Boston Globe printed a satirical front page complete with fake stories that show how "troubling" its editorial board says a Donald Trump presidency would be for America.

The newspaper's front page is dated April 9, 2017, and its lead story is about Trump calling for deportations. Another article mentions work being halted on a wall at the Mexico border.

There's also a short item about backlash Trump received after tweeting a photo of his new dog he named "Madame Peng," after China's first lady Peng Liyuan.

In an editorial, the Globe calls the satire "an exercise in taking a man at his word."

The board says Republicans need to put up every roadblock to Trump they can.

The Trump campaign hasn't responded to requests for comment.
