Orange is the colour
TRUMP’S hairstyle has been the source of many jokes. His hair even led to disputes among children at a school he visited in Las Vegas (拉斯維加斯). They wanted to know whether his hair is really orange. They were also interested in other aspects of the man who could be their leader. In A Child’s First Book of Trump, author and comedian Michael Ian Black introduces young readers to an orange creature who aims for world domination.
