A new video that appeared on social media Wednesday, February 7, 2018, has revived the controversy about President Trump’s hair and clearly showed that he is indeed suffering from baldness.
The video shows the US president clambering up the stairs of Air Force One in stormy weather. The strong wind splits his hair in two, revealing significant baldness.
“At first I didnt think this could possibly be real but…. I think it is?” said Ashley Feinberg, a reporter for the Huffington Post. Adding “imagine what those locks look like soaking wet”

According to the video footage, the wind revealed many bald areas in the US president’s scalp, which were never seen in previous footage.
Donald Trump’s hair has long intrigued a lot of people because it makes him look much younger than his real age. A lot of speculation and jokes made the president’s hair their subject for many years.

Wolff wrote in his book that Ivanka “often described the mechanics behind it to friends”:" An absolutely clean pate – a contained island after scalp reduction surgery – surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray."Trump has repeatedly denied that his hair is fake or that he was having any hair issues. At a campaign rally in Alabama in 2015 he said “If it rains, I’ll take off my hat, and I’ll prove once and for all that it’s mine,” . At another one in Iowa he said “I would probably comb my hair back. Why? Because this thing is too hard to comb. I wouldn’t have time, because if I were in the White House, I’d be working my ass off.” He has yet to fulfill these campaign pledges about his hair, let alone the many other pledges still pending.
