Is President Trump's tan real?

Donald Trump's orangey glow has become an intrinsic part of his personal brand. Much like the letter carriers of yoreneither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night can stop Trump's tan. Rumors abound about his tan. Omarosa Manigault claimed he had a tanning bed in the White House and used it every day. James Comey speculated that the white circles around his eyes are from tanning goggles. The White House says his golden glow is due to old fashioned "good genes." What do you think?

White House officials have consistently denied rumors the president uses self-tanner or a tanning booth. The New York Times reports that despite the tan lines, white circles around his eyes, its radioactive hue—White House staff maintains Trump just won the genetic lottery. 

The official line from the White House, as with other matters surrounding the president’s physical health and appearance, is that Mr. Trump’s glow is the result of “good genes,” according to a senior administration official who would speak only on the condition of anonymity.
And, O.K., a little powder — a translucent one, not a bronzer — which the president applies himself before television appearances, the official said.

All signs though point to the tan being completely man-made. Some, like journalist Ashton Pittman, pointed out it was shocking the White House would feel the need to lie about something as trivial and mundane as the president's skincare routine.
