When we are called Donald Trump and we are the President of the United States of America, we are necessarily under the microscope. All gestures and attitudes are analyzed, interpreted and even compared to those of his peers!
Since taking office, the boss of the White House is no exception. And the personality of Donald Trump is probably a lot.
As compulsive as some say, it has undoubtedly revolutionized the way in which tenants communicate with the “White House”.
But do not go astray. For a few days Donald Trump has been the subject of buzz on social media not because of one of his shattering statements against North Korea or the US media and the FBI , but for his hairstyle.
As he was about to board his plane, a gust of wind took some liberties with his mop, revealing a part of his head rather bald.
This image did not fail to attract the attention of a Huffington Post reporter, Ashley Feinberg, and her tweets were later shared in a loop on social networks.
Can't stop thinking about this. Trump's hair helmet literally flies off. pic.twitter.com/TOabB45opv

And as one would have expected mockery endlessly, but not all, like this gentleman who is surprised that we are making fun of a man because he would be bald.
I would never mock a bald man for being bald.
I would, however, laugh at heartily at an egocentric loser for his absurd combover.https://t.co/r52s6NW4xp

Donald Trump’s hair does not go unnoticed and sometimes taunts because of the color of the locks. But he is not the only leader in the hair style that surprises or detonates. In 2015, Kim Jong Un from North Korea drew attention to him with hair bulged from the front and shaved at the neck and sides.
The hairstyles of African leaders
On the continent, they are not legion heads of state who show fantasy with their hair. From Macky Sall of Senegal, through Patrice Talon of Benin or Paul Kagame to Rwanda, the choice of short cut hair dominates.
President Jacob Zuma of South Africa or Yoweri Museveni of Uganda opted for the skull completely shaved, although the Ugandan president has discovered a passion for a headgear that leaves him almost no more, a beige hat with a leather cord that he wears at all times.
For the sake of coquetry, some heads of state make the choice to blacken their hair to hide the appearance of gray like the Cameroonian Paul Biya or Chad Idriss Deby.
Still others choose to radically change the texture of their hair by softening it with hair straighteners such as Gabonese Ali Bongo in the recent past or Equatorial Guinean Vice President Teodorin Obiang.
It is therefore not common to see many with a gray hair like the president of Djibouti Ismail Omar Guelleh or the former leader of the UN Kofi Annan. And why not also quote the late South African President Nelson Mandela who carried until his death the same hairstyle for years.
