The magnificent mop, sported by Mr Griff, a 13-year-old Brussels griffon, bears a striking resemblance to the US Commander in Chief.

His owner, Steph Rounds, 23, from Binghamton in New York, USA, started combing and styling her pooch’s untameable hair two years ago.

She’s been called ‘crazy’ for her amusing photographs but has attracted over 9,000 Instagram followers who Steph claims find the posts ‘hysterical’.

The communication studies graduate takes 300 pictures for every one image posted of Donald Trump-lookalike Mr Griff and believes his facial expressions mimic the President’s overly animated face.

Steph said: “It’s really hilarious, in the pictures he looks just like Donald Trump, he has the hair and perfect expressions.

“You have to brush your dog’s hair and make a terrible wig-like mess with it, then use hairspray to get it into a terrible combover looking monstrosity.

“Eventually it looked like the rug Trump has so I only had to do a bit of styling and put some volume in there too.

“I see why he has a team to do it, you can’t just do it by yourself.

“I dressed him up and then scoured the internet for hair that kind of matched the picture I took at first and everyone really loved it.

“I try to make the pictures as funny as I can and love seeing the feedback, it was funny to see how popular he became

“People think I’m ridiculous for doing it but they love it, they can’t wait to see what I’m doing now and next.

“The favourite one is of him yawning, where it looks like he is screaming which matches a couple of Donald Trump pictures I’ve seen.

“I enjoy the comedy of it, so it’s my way of channelling passion into something.”

Steph spends around 20-minutes for her photoshoots and maintains that her pooch enjoys the experience.

She added: “Some people have said it’s ‘cruel’ to put clothes on my dog but he really seems to like it and acts very naturally.

“My dog will let me do just about anything, he goes with the flow and I appreciate that.”
