White House Says Donald Trump’s Skin Colour Is Due To ‘Good Genes’

Ever since Donald Trump entered the White House, he and his staff have been asked every question under the sun.

What are you doing about the border wall? When are you going to end the shutdown? What is your relationship with Melania like? What is Mr Trump like behind closed doors? How good are you at golf?

But one question has persisted through all of that and even before he assumed the presidency: what's the go with the colour of your skin?

While that's a pretty outlandish question to ask in 2019, it's one that has puzzled people the world over and also earned the President nicknames that we won't repeat here.

Well, it seems as though that age old question has now been answered.

In a New York Times article, the White House has revealed the true nature of Mr Trump's pigment, but not before a hilarious breakdown of the topic.

It reads: "In a town where not even the longtime operation of the federal government seems certain, Mr. Trump has adhered to one constant: a conspicuously sun-kissed glow, one that has shone like a stoplight against Washington's graying backdrop.

"Much like Warhol's shock of white hair or Big Bird's saffron plumage, the president's vibrant hue is so consistently present and meticulously maintained that it was a culturally embedded representation of him long before he entered politics."

A senior White House official told the NYT that his orangey hue is down to 'good genes'.

While the leader does don some powder before he goes on TV, the anonymous staffer maintained that this product was translucent, not a bronzer.

Former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed in her tell-all book that a tanning bed has been used by Mr Trump, however no one has been able to find it in the White House or even on Air Force One.

Another subject of inquiry regarding Mr Trump is his hairdo.

But just how exactly has his hair got to be such a state? Well, apparently it is the product of a unique combination of scalp reduction surgery, strong hairspray and the impatient use of hair dye.

He claims the President's daughter, Ivanka, relished jokingly discussing her dad's odd head of hair with friends.

A section of the book reads: "She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate - a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery - surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the centre and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray."

Scalp reduction surgery aims to reduce the size of a man's bald spot, though Trump himself has admitted he still struggles to obscure what remains of his.
