Donald Trump's appearance since the results of the 2020 presidential elections was declared has been a topic of discussion on social media. Gone is the tan and orange mop of hair and instead it is his gray hair that has been causing quite the stir and it looks like contesting the elections is taking a toll on him. 

Speaking in his first public appearance in six days since the media projected former Vice President Joe Biden as the winner of the November 3 election, the 74-year-old spoke about Operation Warp Speed and provided updates on the Covid-19 vaccine on Friday, November 13. He had made the speech at an event that took place in the White House Rose Garden. He called work on the vaccine the greatest mobilization of vaccine development in US history, noting that it usually takes more than eight years to produce an effective inoculation.

Trump has not yet conceded to Biden but did acknowledge that there may be a new administration in the near future. “Hopefully whatever happens in the future, who knows, which administration it will be, I guess time will tell, but I can tell you this administration will not go to a lockdown,” Trump insisted.

However, it was Trump's hair caught social media's attention. One such user shared, "I hate trump but he does look better with natural gray hair. Now he can take his gray hair and go away, far,far, away!" Another shared, "@realDonaldTrump Looking old and slow with the Gray hair Trump. Everything about you and what comes out of your mouth is a lie." 

"Question of the night why did Trump go with the gray hair? Does he think the new Doo will gain him more respect? You have to earn respect and he definitely has never earned it. The only thing I can say it makes him less like a doofus but he's still a doofus!" commented another user. 







Yet another user shared, "Since I feel with certainty that every move you make is always playing the angle. I was married to a con-man, so I see right through you. Is the new gray hair look for sympathy? Asking for a friend." 

"So funny my daughter asked me tonight why he stopped dying his hair. Maybe he ran out of money to pay his hairdresser. $70,000 a year is a lot and he’s broke now," chimed in another user. 





Trump has been known for his bright blonde hair and it is not known why it seems to have taken on a lighter and more gray tone recently. Last month, a New York Times report had stated that while Trump was the host of The Apprentice, he had taken $70,000 in tax deductions to look after his hair. 

We had earlier reported that Trump recently proclaimed that 'time will tell' who actually won the US presidential election, adding that no Covid lockdown will be mandated as long as he's in power in his first in-person speaking appearance at the Rose Garden event. He had taken to the podium on November 13 afternoon and refused to take any questions from reporters. He spoke about Operation Warp Speed which refers to the coronavirus vaccine that he claimed was "unequaled and unrivaled anywhere in the world." He also shared that other world leaders have called him to "congratulate us on what we’ve been able to do."

According to the president, the federal government's $1.95 billion deal with Pfizer aims to distribute 100 million doses of the pharmaceutical company's Covid vaccine to the people of the US. His update on Operation Warp Speed comes five days after Pfizer and BioNTech announced that their leading vaccine candidate is more than 90% effective against Covid-19, based on preliminary phase three tests.
