With his bloated face, orange perma tan and ridiculous hair, if the president of the United States is anything, he’s excellent fodder for press photographers.
Probably B&T’s favourite story about president Trump and his relationship with the press is that he likes to hold press conferences in front of the presidential helicopter – known as Marine One – and then pretends he can’t hear difficult questions due to the noise from the rotor blades.
But now comes a new press photo that many are arguing sums up the Trump presidency a little too perfectly.
The devilish image was shot by freelance photographer Samuel Corum last Thursday as Trump hosted a roundtable meeting with Hispanic leaders in the White House. Corum’s an ex-army Marine who did two combat duties of Iraq. Check out more of his stunning work here.

Corum’s work soon found a number of supporters on Twitter. Although some thought they saw a halo and not Devil’s horns.
“Possibly the photo of the decade. And it’s only 2020,” one fan of the image tweeted in response.
“This needs to go on the next cover of Time magazine,” said another.
Another added: “I feel like this photo will be used in history books when future generations discuss his presidency. Incredible.”
