A Chinese Donald Trump impersonator is taking his audiences by storm despite looking nothing like the American President.
Li Liangwei, 65, left his career as a magazine publisher behind to hire himself out as a Trump ‘look-a-like’.
Despite having grey hair, speaking no English and looking nothing like Trump, Li has become a huge hit in Beijing.
Li has even been asked to star in TV adverts as Trump.
Although claiming he knows little about politics, Li said he found the President to be a “clever person”, an “inspirational figure” and a “great leader”, when he first saw him on TV.
“When I saw Trump , I knew he would be a great leader”, while speaking to the MailOnline.
Describing his bizarre impersonation tactics, he added: “Appearance isn’t everything.
“I specialise in imitating Trump’s gestures and facial expressions.”
Li is often pictured with outstretched arms and a thumbs or, or a firm one-fingered point, which he believes captures Trump’s body language.
The owner of a TV production company in the Hunan Province, Mr Zou, manages Li’s work and bookings for appearances as Trump.
He also has a Chinese impersonator of Barack Obama on his books.
Having been friends for years, it was Mr Zou who encouraged Li to start working as a Trump impersonator.
While the pair were eating dinner together, Li gestured in a way that reminded him of Trump.
Mr Zou said: “You look like someone. You look like US President Trump.”
