VIENNA — Just about everyone wants to be Donald Trump this Carnival season in Austria — so much so that some costume rental shops have run out of wigs miming the U.S. president’s signature hairstyle.

Austria celebrates the pre-Lenten Carnival season with scores of balls and other masked events in the winter.
