❝ For US President Donald Trump, glittering résumés and decades of experience aren’t the only relevant factors when hiring officials to top positions — appearance counts.
Appearance is said to be something Trump’s new hire as national security adviser, Robert C. O’Brien, had in his favor. A source close to the president told The New York Times in an article published Wednesday that Trump had enthused about O’Brien’s well-tailored appearance and easy demeanor.
❝ Trump had remarked that O’Brien “looks the part,” The Times said, and contrasted him with his immediate predecessor in the role, John Bolton, whose bushy mustache and prickly personality were widely reported to clash with Trump’s vision of a White House in which everyone looks as if they are straight out of “central casting.”
All the qualities Trumpo lacks, are expected from a sharp-dressed man.
