The polls have not closed in the U.S. but Mexicans are already planning a huge celebration.

A Facebook invite is asking people to gather at Mexico City's iconic Angel of Independence statue Tuesday night for a celebration if Republican candidate Donald Trump loses the presidency. At least 6,000 people have already RSVPed that they would come.

The Facebook page has a photo of Trump wearing a Mexican sombrero. 

Trump is unpopular in Mexico for suggesting that many Mexican immigrants are criminals or rapists, and for promising to build a border wall between the countries.
