A US man got the shock of his life after trying to steal a booby-trapped Donald Trump sign.

The Trump supporter was sick of people stealing and vandalising his signs - so he took drastic countermeasures.

Home surveillance footage shows what happened after an unwitting thief attempted to get away with their prize.

They run up to what they think is an easy target - but instead are electrocuted by the power of The Donald.

They were reportedly later charged with trespassing.
