WASHINGTON (AFP) - President Donald Trump took time on Monday (June 25) to boast of his "great" hair, the subject of long-running speculation it might be a wig.

"That's one of the great things I got. Everybody used to say my hair is phony, it is not my hair, I am wearing a hairpiece," the blond 72-year-old President told supporters in South Carolina, where he campaigned for Governor Henry McMaster.

"They never say that any more. I have been caught in rainstorms, winds 60 miles (95km) an hour," Trump said.

He went on to warn those with hairpieces: "If it is not your hair, don't run for office, folks."
