Trump’s election loss seems to turn his hair gray

After first public speech in over a week, what dominated social media talk was US president’s normally yellow mane becoming a more subdued shade

As US President Donald Trump gave his first public speech in over a week on Friday after losing the elections, many viewers were less focused on what came out of his mouth than on what was on his head.

After years of dyeing his hair yellow-blond, Trump’s hair seemed to have turned a more natural gray.

That was the only thing that was different from normal, though, because the president once again failed to concede that he had lost the presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden, more than a week after all major US news outlets called the White House race for the former vice president.

Trump did come close, though, saying that “time will tell” who will head the next administration.

After speaking at a briefing in the White House Rose Garden on the COVID-19 pandemic, which has left over 243,000 Americans dead, Trump left the event without responding to reporters who were shouting questions such as, “When will you admit you lost the election, sir?”

Meanwhile, the press conference was making waves on social media for different reasons.
