It is true that the enhancing is kind of beautiful: similar proportions within the options, fastened gaze, twin noses, related lips… Except clearly the ageing of the ex-president which isn’t to his benefit. And his unbelievable blonde coiffure which contrasts with the black hair of the king of pop. On this topic, nevertheless, the 2 males have one factor in frequent: we all know that Elvis took maniacal care in sustaining his well-known quiff which made him well-known, simply as Trump at all times took care of his blond fleece, which he considers “the one of its great assets.”

According to New York Times, who has gone through his accounts and his taxes, he spends around 70,000 euros per year to maintain his famous hair, styled in such a way that it aims to hide his baldness. A result that is not necessarily convincing, if we are to believe the opinion of certain celebrity hairdressers who speak of a cut “between an otter’s tail and an ear of flowering corn…”

For Elvis, the story ended badly

Having become president, the billionaire insisted on posthumously awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, while the title “How Great Thou Art” resonated within the walls of the White House. He also wanted to erect his statue in a National Garden of American Heroes, which ultimately never saw the light of day…

In November 2018, he did it again while visiting Tupelo, a small town in Mississippi where the rock'n'roll legend was born. “We love Elvis,” the president said at the time, noting that the mere mention of the star’s name provoked loud applause among his supporters. I shouldn't say that, you're going to say that I'm pretentious, when that's not true… But, if we ignore my blond hair, when I was younger, people said that I looked like Elvis. I always took that as a compliment…”

Be cautious, nevertheless, to not find yourself like him: undermined by loneliness, filled with amphetamines, exhausted by being obese and the reveals the place he was nothing greater than a shadow of himself…
