Donald Trump Impersonator Thinks He'll Be Busier Than Ever Next Year
The 'UK's number one Trump impersonator' reckons next year will be his busiest yet. Watch him in action here:
Mike Osman, from Southampton, has been impersonating the incumbent POTUS since the spring before his election in 2016.
And while Joe Biden may been declared the winner of this year's US presidential election, Mike is convinced 2021 will be his biggest year yet.
Speaking to LADbible, the 61-year-old said: "I think that people are more likely to book my version of Donald Trump - the funny version of Donald Trump, the non-political version - when Trump leaves office in January. I really believe that.
"So I think when this is all sorted, as in the election and coronavirus, and I get back to work, I think I'm going to be busier than ever.
"I'm getting enquiries, really good enquiries for next year already.
"And you can sort of tell by the amount of enquiries how this is gonna go, and I think it's gonna be fine for me."
Mike - who has been working as an entertainer for 40 years - said it has been 'incredible' playing Trump at all manner of events, from corporate dos and rounds of golf, to appearing on ITV's Ninja Warrior and Tonight at the London Palladium.
Over this period, he has developed a deep understanding of Trump's character, and knowing him as well as he does, he's confident the presidential race isn't run yet.

He said: "This is not over.
"Trump and his team still believe still believe that they're gonna find so much fraud, you know - so much of this that they're going to get either a re-election or a recount in the states he thinks he ought to have won."
WE WILL WIN!

Thus far though, Trump's claims of fraud appear to be entirely unsubstantiated, suggesting he will no longer be president come 20 January, whether or not he concedes.
But while Trump's tenure as president may be drawing to a close, Mike is confident his impersonation gig is far from over.
He said: "I think Trump will remain remain relevant for the rest of his life.
"Having said what I said, I still think he'll be a massive influence in the Republican Party, he will probably shape their policy.
"I will not be at all surprised if he runs again in 2024. Why wouldn't he? He's got an ego, you know? He's got an ego bigger than the moon. So big."
