This is the moment a Chilean police officer shows a new ecstasy pill on the market that is bright orange and appears to feature United States President Donald Trump’s face.
A suspected drug dealer, who was reportedly found with the Trump pills, was arrested on Plaza de la Independencia in the city of Concepcion located in the central Chilean region of Bio Bio.
According to police spokesperson Brenda Rubiera, a plainclothes police officer was staking out the area when a 30-year-old man approached him offering drugs.

When the cop realised it was probably a psychoactive drug, he immediately arrested the man, according to Rubiera.
Chilean cops then raided the man’s home where they reportedly found 37 doses of LSD, 51 ecstasy pills, two bags with 1.1 grammes of 2C-B, 88.3 grammes of cannabis and 395,000 CLP (387 GBP) in cash.
Head prosecutor Jorge Lorca said: “In the city centre, we detected the presence of synthetic drugs that have a higher value than traditional drugs.
“The quantity of drugs caught our attention and we are going to focus our investigations on their origin and how they arrived in the city, as this is not typical for the area.”
He added: “They are clearly from abroad, imported.”
Reports said the suspect has been charged with drug trafficking as the investigation continues.
