Residents in various Mexican cities have added U.S. Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump to one of their Easter traditions by setting a paper effigy of him on fire.

Cities like Monterrey, Nuevo Leon and Ciudad Juarez Chihuahua took part in the Easter weekend tradition known as the “La Quema de Judas” or “The Burning of Judas,” Mexico’sEl Universal reported. Residents threw rotten eggs, used fireworks and then set fire to the paper effigies. 

The event is part of a local Catholic tradition where community presents the struggle between good and evil. The tradition calls for community members to set fire to an effigy of Judas Iscariot who, according to Catholic beliefs, is the apostle that turned Jesus in to the Pharisees.
