Donald Trump is one helluva prolific headline creator - and here we are again with yet another huge claim.
This time, it turns out the President really wants to be added to Mount Rushmore, and White House aides even spoke with officials about the possibility of making it a reality.
Keep scrolling for the full story.
It's been a long first term...
via: GettySince winning his place in the White House back in 2017, President Trump has continued to divide opinions with his controversial politics and irrational behavior.
It's been a strange couple of years...
via: GettyNo one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
But, this wasn't a publicity stunt.
via: GettyDonald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."
And when it came round to election day...The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had their new leader - President Donald Trump.
It's been an eventful few years, to say the least.
via: GettyIt's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country is at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.
Oh, and the infamous Mexican wall still hasn't been built.Though he has announced his plans to divert $7.2 million from the Pentagon for the border wall construction.
The President is no stranger to criticism and controversy...
via: GettyMuch of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.
And, earlier this year...The President was actually impeached.
Trump was charged with 2 offenses.
via: GettyThe first was for abuse of power, and the second was an accusation of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.
But despite his impeachment...
via: GettyTrump continues to hold an awful lot of power and his fan base is still going strong... which isn't necessarily a good thing considering the majority of Trump supporters hold far-right and very conservative ideologies.
Times are now harder than ever for the President...
via: GettySince the coronavirus pandemic took over the world back in March, there's no denying that Trump has handled it awfully.
Our country is now the worst affected in the world...
via: GettyAnd Trump just seems to be completely oblivious to how catastrophic the coronavirus has been for millions of people.
And not to mention the Black Lives Matter movement...
via: GettyPresident Trump has shown no real support for the historic and important movement and he clearly isn't interested in seeing any change for the African American community.
And as well as all of this.
via: Getty ImagesPeople are always talking about the President's hair - with millions of people asking the same thing... Is it real?
Recently we received the answer.
via: GettyThe yellow, meshy-looking froth ball sitting on top of his scalp is actually his own, natural hair, even if the color isn't.
It seems as though Trump has missed a few salon appointments.
via: Getty ImagesBecause a few weeks back we managed to catch a glimpse of what it looked like fully stripped back while he was conducting a press conference in Rose Garden yesterday.
And I have to admit, he looks so much better silver.
via: Getty ImagesWhoever advises the President on his appearance needs to ditch the bottle blonde and keep the natural mesh. It's a look. Maybe, just maybe, he'll be able to make better decisions without the hydrogen-peroxide seeping through into his brain. Who knows?
Check it out.

Last week we had another big Trump claim.
via: Getty ImagesWhat was it? Well the President claimed to be banning TikTok!
He told a reporter he was done with the app.
via: Getty ImagesChatting to a reporter on Air Force One, Trump claimed he would be banning TikTok in the United States.
The President said:
via: Getty Images
Well, I have that authority ... I can do it with an executive order. We're banning them from the United States.
But why?Well according to TMZ, it's because TikTok is a Chinese owned company and Trump simply has it out for the Chinese. There have been concerns about privacy and data collection but many think Trump is quite literally banning the app just because it's Chinese...
But will he actually do it?Well it hasn't happened in the past week! But who knows.
And the latest news?Well news has emerged that the White House has asked about adding Trump to Mount Rushmore. Apparently Trump's biggest dream is to be added to the Presidential sculpture and in 2019, White House aides reached out to the governor of South Dakota and asked about the process of adding additional presidents, reports The New York Times.
He was presented with a sculpture of Mount Rushmore that had his face on it.The Governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, recalled a conversation she had with Trump when she visited the White House. She told the Argus Leader that Trump said to her:
Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand'. I shook his hand, and I said, ‘Mr. President, you should come to South Dakota sometime. We have Mount Rushmore.’ And he goes, ‘Do you know it’s my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?’ I started laughing. He wasn’t laughing, so he was totally serious.But will it happen? No, probably not.
