When Donald Trump was elected the United States’ 45th President on 20th January 2017, lots of people started criticising and wondering about his strange, orange complexion which many have described as the result of using too much fake tan.
So obviously, people were entitled to wonder if the President of the United States actually has a set budget that he allocates to his sessions on the sun bed or to the tubes of foundation that he must plough through.
Down to genetics and a high carotene intake?
It turns out that the president actually responded to people’s curiosity in 2019 at a conference in Baltimore that was set up to deal with renewable energies, in particular energy-saving light bulbs. Donald Trump used this conference as an opportunity to talk about himself, as well as talk about the assumptions and rumours surrounding his orange complexion.
The bulb that we're being forced to use, number one, to me, most importantly, the light’s no good, I always look orange. And so do you!
So, was there really a problem with the energy-saving light bulbs? Of course not.
Sandra Diaz, one of the presidential couple’s housekeepers, spilled the beans and even she had suspected that the Donald Trump's orange hue was not natural. She said that the president uses foundation made by a Swiss brand and that he definitely has a set beauty routine. She told the Washington Post that she even used to smear some of his liquid foundation onto the back of her hand to make sure it had not dried.
The article added:
He wanted, in his bedroom bureau at all times, two full containers of white Tic Tacs and one container that was half full. The same rule applied to the Bronx Colors brand face makeup from Switzerland that Trump slathered on—two full containers, one half full—even if it meant the housekeepers had to regularly bring new shirts from the pro shop because of the rust-coloured stains on the collars.
The White House’s official response
One of the senior officials within Trump’s administration, who insisted on remaining anonymous, told The New York Times that the President of the United State’s tanned complexion was merely a result of his ‘good genes.’
We're not sure this will convince the public!
