Trump says his hair 'may not be great' but 'it’s better than most of my friends who are the same age'
The president came back on the subject of the realness of his hair while campaigning for Republican candidate Dan Bishop for the upcoming special election in North Carolina's 9th Congressional District
While rallying support for Republican candidate Dan Bishop for the upcoming special election in North Carolina's 9th Congressional District on Tuesday, President Donald Trump could not stop speaking about his wife Melania Trump, his predecessor Barack Obama, and of course, his "real" hair.
Although Trump was originally planning to hold the rally at the Fayetteville Regional Airport on Monday, it was moved to the Crown Expo Center over concerns of rain, but the POTUS told the gathered crowd that a little bad weather would not have stopped him from reaching his supporters. "I was even willing to stand out in the rain and get my hair soaking wet but they said it was a little bit out of your district," said Trump to the cheering crowd, adding that his team decided against using their originally planned site for the rally as it was located outside the district where the special election was going to be held.
He then went on to sing praises for the iconic mane on his head. "But I was willing to do it. I would’ve taken it. I would’ve been very proud to have done it. It would have shown it’s my real hair at least," he said. "It’s my hair. May not be great, but I will say it’s better than most of my friends' who are the same age."
This is not the first time the president was seen trying to prove that his full head of hair was his own and not some wig that many media outlets tried to suggest he wore when he was out campaigning in the 2016 election. To prove his point, Trump was often seen deliberately touching or playing with his hair at rallies.
A day ahead of the special election, Trump also reminded people that his main agenda was to always put America first and hence, he was focused on being the most popular president nationally, not internationally. "You finally have a president who understands I’m not supposed to be president of the world, I’m supposed to be president of the United States of America," he said at the rally, which was an obvious reference to his predecessor, who made a name for himself globally during his term and also was awarded the Noble Peace Prize.
"Obama is more popular in Germany than Trump. He's got to be. I'm making people pay their bills," Trump said. "The day I'm more popular than him, I'm not doing my job. They like him more in Europe than they likeTrump. I think they should."
Claiming that the phrase "Make America Great Again" used as his campaign slogan in 2016 election was the "greatest phrase in the history of politics," he reminded people of North Carolina why they should vote for the candidate from his party.
"A vote for any Democrat in 2020 and a vote for any Democrat tomorrow in North Carolina is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream. We are entering this campaign with the best record, the best results, the best agenda," he said.
He also talked about the First Lady, saying that she was the one who informed him about social media personalities Diamond and Silk’s support of his candidacy. The pair warmed up the crowd before the president's arrival at the rally.
"They are incredible. Incredible people," he said.
