Washington — President Donald Trump says he goes to great lengths to hide the bald spot revealed in a recent photo.

Speaking before the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, Trump turned around onstage and smoothed the back of his famous hair.

He said, "I try like hell to hide that bald spot, folks". The crowd cheered as Trump glanced at a monitor and added, "Doesn't look bad. Hey, we're hanging in."
