At the last rally of the year, President Trump made an appearance in Tupelo, Mississippi on Monday night. He was there to support the Republican candidate, the Confederate flag, loving Cindy Hyde-Smith in the Senate race against Democrat Mike Espy. In the midst of a speech that focused heavily on immigration, Trump decided to change course, and instead talked about his appearance – specifically, how people used to compare him to … Elvis Presley, who was born in Tupelo.
"I should not say that, you'd say I'm pretty vain because I'm not, but besides blond hair, when I was growing up, they said I looked like Elvis," he said. "Do you believe that? I always considered it a great compliment."
That's definitely a stretch – though not the first time Trump has tried to lure the country to compliment its appearance. There was the time he called the White House and all those who work there "hot." Or the time he passionately held that we started calling people "beautiful" and "beautiful" again.
The comparison comes just after Trump posthumously received the Presidential Freedom Medal for Elvis Presley in mid-November. "After redefining music in the 1950s and redefining the movies in the 1960s," The King "- as it was known by everyone – everyone, to this day, calls it" The King " – revolutionized live performances in the '70s, "Trump said during the Freedom Medal ceremony. "The crowds were absolutely overwhelmed by their electric performances."

There is no way to prove who told President Trump whether or not he looked like the late rock star Elvis Presley. If someone, somewhere, really said that any resemblance that may have existed has certainly disappeared now.
