People Are Carving Pumpkins Into 'Trumpkins' That Look Like Donald Trump

People Are Carving Pumpkins Into 'Trumpkins' That Look Like Donald Trump

It seems people are getting particularly creative with their pumpkin carving this year, harnessing the gourd's naturally orange hue to craft 'Trumpkins' that resemble perma-tanned US President Donald Trump.

Many have been sharing their incredible creations on social media, bringing a political twist to Halloween celebrations this year as we approach the US presidential election in November.

It's a trend that first cropped up back in 2016 when Trump first ran for president, but now it's found renewed relevance as Trump goes up against Joe Biden in a bid to win a second term.

While some designs have been intricately carved into the pumpkins, others have incorporated props to help achieve the desired effect, from hats to campaign flags.

Sharing theirs on Twitter, one person said they'd used yellow Labrador fur to replicate Trump's hair.

A very imaginative attempt saw another person using pumpkin flesh for the president's famous bouffant, also giving him a grotesque yelling expression.

Others used straw for Trump's hair, or posed their Trumpkins in hats that said 'Make Halloween Great Again'.

Many have also been sharing the unofficial definition of the 'Trumpkin', which says: "It's orange on the outside, hollow on the inside, and should be thrown out in November."

Trump headed back on the campaign trail recently, following a brief hiatus after he, the First Lady and several close members of his team tested positive for the virus.

Having received round-the-clock care and an experimental drug treatment that had only been used in severe cases, he was discharged from the Walter Reed Medical Centre - claiming he felt better than ever.

In a video posted on his social media channels, he hailed the treatment as a 'cure', even though there is no known cure for the virus.

Trump said: "For me, I walked in, I didn't feel so good and 24 hours later I was feeling great.

"I feel great. I feel like, perfect. I think this was a blessing from God, that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise. I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said let me take it, it was my suggestion.

"I said, 'Let me take it.' And it was incredible the way it worked, incredible. And I think if I didn't catch it, we'd be looking at that like a number of other drugs. But it really did a fantastic job. I want to get for you what I got. I'm going to make it free, you're not going to pay for it."
