Thursday was a very windy day in Maryland, as President Donald Trump’s hair can attest.

He departed the White House around 12:45 p.m., en route to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

On the tarmac in Maryland, the wind caught his hair, and photographers were there to capture the result.

Trump was heading to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia aboard Air Force One for a roundtable with business owners and representatives from companies in the state who have benefited from the Republican tax law. It’s his third trip to the state as president.

The weather on the Air Force Base called for 14.5 kph winds with gusts to 40 kph.

Some, including a hair-transplant surgeon who spoke with Business Insider in 2015, have speculated that Trump had a hair transplant at some point in his life.

Trump joked about his hair at a speech in February. “I try like hell to hide the bald spot, folks,” he told the crowd, patting down the back. “It doesn’t look bad.”
