SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A hilarious pumpkin carving trend is making Halloween great again…and it’s huge on social media. Huge. 
Spirited constituents from both sides of the ballot are sculpting their orange gourds into the head of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
And, they’re calling them “Trumpkins.”
Proud carvers are posting images of their comical “Trumpkins” all over social media.  The more creative carvings include Trump’s iconic mane crafted from straw, pumpkin shavings, and wigs.  Some even sport Trump’s famous red hat while others wave little banners displaying some of his notable campaign slogans.
If you’ve converted your pumpkin into a Trump-o’-latern, send us a pick at

These #trumpkins are incredibly terrifying... @lrodradio
