Factory manager Jacky Chen reckons they'll be a knockout bestseller. "I think in 2016 this mask will completely sell out," he told Reuters.

Once derided as an outsider with no real chance at the White House, Trump secured enough delegates for the Republican nomination for the presidency on May 26.

The factory is also making masks of Democratic Party frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Chen said sales of the masks, priced around $4-5 each, are currently at about half a million for each candidate.

But he predicted a runaway success for Trump.

Meanwhile, in some polls, Trump has closed the double-digit lead Clinton once enjoyed.
