Donald Trump showed off a more grayish tone to his usual blonde hair during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden on July 14 and one Twitter user claimed he’s trying to ‘look like Biden’.
President Donald Trump, 74, debuted a more natural hair makeover on July 14 when his locks appeared to have more gray tones to them during a press conference about China in the White House Rose Garden. The look was definitely different from his usual blondish color that we’re used to seeing and many viewers took to Twitter to tweet about the change. Although some people said the color looked good on him, others called him “desperate” and criticized him, diminishing his potential of becoming a “silver fox.”

“White hair day on the left…yellow on the right?” one Twitter user wrote in the caption for a side-by-side photo of Trump at his recent conference and an older one. “Is Trump’s hair less orange-yellow than usual?” another asked. “TRUMP’S SO DESPERATE HE’S TRYING TO LOOK LIKE BIDEN!” a third posted.

“Trump is letting his gray hair show because he wants to copy [Joe] Biden’s hair. Hey Dishonest Don, it’s what is underneath his hair that matters,” another tweet read, while a fifth wrote, “Did Trump forget to dye his gray hair blonde?”
We’re not sure if Trump’s new gray hair is a conscious decision or a consequence of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been forcing businesses, such as hair salons, to temporarily close. Either way, it’s not the first time he’s gotten attention because of his hair. He had Twitter users tweeting up a storm when his hair was blowing around in the wind during a press conference in Mar. and he even used the opportunity to make a joke about some critics claiming his mane isn’t real.
“My hair’s blowing around and it’s mine,” he said in the conference after a box that was placed near the podium he was speaking at blew away from the strong gusts.
He also got attention when he took to the stage at a Virginia church with a slicked back hairstyle in June 2019. “WTF did you do with your hair, @realDonaldTrump?” one person tweeted. “It almost looks normal.” Another said the look helped him to have “his first good hair day” and a third compared him to the character of Gordon Gekko from the 1987 film Wall Street.
