Mr Trump, 74, is renowned around the world for his coiffed blonde hair and tan. But his hair looked remarkably different when the US president made an appearance today for a White House press briefing. Mr Trump attacked China for being “fully responsible” for the coronavirus pandemic, and vowed revenge.
Other users pointed out that Joe Biden, presumptive Democratic nominee for president, may be an influence for Mr Trump’s new look.
One user said: “I feel like, in regards to Trump’s suddenly grey hair, that he knows he probably can’t beat Biden so he’s now trying to emulate him..?
“The mask, the grey hair, etc.
“I’m just waiting for the aviators next.
“He truly doesn’t understand why Biden is so ahead in the polls.”
Mr Trump’s hair has been subject to social media speculation often.
In February, a photo made the rounds of Mr Trump in the wind, with visible tan lines and receding hair.
He responded: “More Fake News.
“This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good?
“Anything to demean!”
Former presidents have gone grey whilst sitting in the White House, with Barack Obama frequently joking about ageing over his eight years as president.
But Alexis Coe, author of New York Times best seller You Never Forget Your First: A Biography of George Washington, thinks that Mr Trump may have intentionally dyed his hair to garner support.
She said to Vogue: “What I think might be happening is a kind of manipulation of the American public in which he is attempting to show citizens that he is suffering as well.
“It’s about optics—Trump is trying to distract from his late, dangerous, and sometimes fatal messaging around coronavirus.”
