‘I know this isn’t important but Trump finally stopped coloring his hair,’ one wrote, sharing a photo of the President from the press conference side-by-side with an image that was taken nine days ago.
The tweet prompted a flurry of mocking replies, with many attempting to deliver their best quips about Trump’s silvery-white locks.
‘His hair colourist has Covid?’ one mused.
‘It appears Donald Trump’s hair dye has conceded,’ another joked.
A third person chimed in that his locks may have turned gray because ‘it’s stressful trying to overthrow a democracy’.

As Trump touted Operation Warp Speed – his public–private partnership to accelerate the development and distribution of a coronavirus vaccine – another viewer wittily replied: ‘Looks like Trump’s hair went gray with Warp Speed.’
Meanwhile, others on social media claimed Trump’s decision to stop dying his locks may have been a deliberate ploy for sympathy following his election loss.
‘He thinks we’ll feel sorry for him, a heartbroken and defeated old man…’ one theorized.
However, there were dozens of others who said that Trump’s new silvery tresses made him look more Presidential – an ironic fact as he is now set to be booted from the White House after four years.
There were also many also praised the Commander-in-chief’s new look – including those some on the left.
‘Noticed Trumps letting his hair go natural gray/white. Looks good. Better than the blonde. That’s all,’ one Twitter used posted.
Another popular tweet read: ‘I hate to say this but he looks much better gray’.
Others chimed in saying they were impressed by Trump’s statesman-like silvery-white locks
