Playing Robbers in Trump Masks Blow Up Cash Machines

Two Italian men have been charged in connection with a string of cash machine robberies that authorities say were inspired — at least in part — by Hollywood capers.

"Inspired by the [1997] film 'The Jackal', whose protagonist, played by Bruce Willis, changes the color of his car because police are in pursuit, the two brothers painted their [white] Mercedes black," Italian police said in a statement.

Reuters reports that the brothers, aged 26 and 30, wore Donald Trump masks as they targeted dozens of ATMs in northern Italy near the city of Turin.
