It’s something that everyone asks. Why does President Trump always have a suntan? And why does it have that orange hue? The answer seems obvious. That’s the color artificial tan lotion takes on once it’s applied to the skin.
Make-up is nothing new. During the 1700s, people put white powder on their hair to color it. And charcoal has been used for ages around the eyes. But… it was while I was reading, “The Day the Bubble Burst: A Social History of the Wall Street Crash of 1929,” by Gordon Thomas and Max Morgan-Witts, that I understood President Trump’s reasoning. One of the people in the story wondered why the “Berlin Börsen-maklers were deeply suntanned.” It was this line that fit so well with Trump’s self-image. “… a suntan was a mark of affluence.”
