Donald Trump has declared that he has had “the most successful first year in the history of the presidency” – and finally admitted he has a bald patch.finally
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, the US President also drew attention to his own bald spot in what many described as a “freewheeling” speech.
Before launching into the speech, Mr Trump admired himself on the big screen, telling the audience: “What a nice picture that is. Look at that. I would love to watch that guy speak.”
He went on to draw attention to his hairline, saying: “Oh, boy. Oh, I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks. I work hard at it. Doesn’t look bad. Hey, we’re hanging in. We’re hanging in. We’re hanging in there, right? Together we’re hanging in.”
