If you’ve ever wondered what US President Donald Trump would look like as a woman, you may now have your answer.

A Spanish potato farmer has accidentally found fame after a journalist visiting a rural area in Cabana de Bergantiños interviewed her for an unrelated story.

The journalist posted a photo showing Dolores Leis Antelo with a shovel on her shoulder on Instagram, not meaning to highlight the uncanny resemblance she has to the US billionaire president. The journalist’s post has since been deleted, but not before it spread throughout the whole internet:

Twitter users soon gave it a life of its own.

Married for 40 years in a rural town, Antelo doesn’t have a computer or a phone, The Huffington Post reported.

But now, the potato farmer has become an internet celebrity, and photos of her are being shared with the hashtag #SenoraTrump.

“My photo seems to have traveled far. I say it is because of the color of my hair.” Spanish newspaper La Voz de Galicia quoted Antelo as saying.

According to Huffington Post, she also told the photographer that she was “charmed” to learn of what people thought about her resemblance to Trump.
