Fans have spotted serious issue with this photo of Logan Paul and Donald Trump

The image has people baffled

In a bizarre moment of two different worlds colliding, YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul has had his photo snapped with former US president and convicted felon Donald Trump.

The picture is now causing quite the stir but not for a reason you might think.

The image was captured when the pair met on the set of Paul’s podcast Impaulsive.

You read that right - the Republican candidate for this year’s US election took the time to sit down and chat with the YouTube star and his co-host, Mike Majlak.

Posting a clip of the meeting on the show’s Instagram page, Paul presented Trump with a t-shirt of his mugshot image, which prompted the former president to respond, saying: “Can you believe that?”

Speaking about his infamous mugshot, Trump went on to remark: “Elvis had one, Frank Sinatra had one but we’ve eclipsed them, a long time ago, we’ve eclipsed them.”

But surprisingly, it isn’t his guest appearance that has sparked speculation amongst viewers.

It’s actually a photo taken of the pair side by side which Paul posted to social media that has people baffled.

The picture shows 6’2” Paul seemingly towering above 6’3” Trump and viewers of the image can’t work out why the businessman appears to be shorter.

Taking to Reddit to share their thoughts, one user had their own theories on how this could have happened, posting: “Paul is obviously wearing lifts. Or maybe standing on a box. Or he lied about his height and is actually 6'8". These are the only possible answers.”

Another had a more blunt approach to the photo, adding: “Trump is a fraud and liar. Photo shows that he’s not 6’3”. It all adds up to me.”

A third agreed, saying: “Convicted felons lie.”

Meanwhile a fourth had a more sympathetic opinion about the bizarre image, posting: “So it’s entirely possible that Trump was 6’3” at one point. BUT age does make you shrink.”

The 77-year-old became the first president to hold a criminal conviction after being found guilty of falsifying business records.

He faces three more criminal cases that have yet been tried but is back on the campaign trail as he runs for re-election this fall.

Amongst his controversies, Trump has promised to target the growing electric car industry, proposing a rollback of regulations on car emissions and plans to reverse current president Joe Biden’s climate policies.

Whether or not Trump will make his way back into the oval office is a decision that will be made by the US public this November, but the mystery around his height might never be answered.
