The presidential candidate was attacked by an eagle named Uncle Sam during a cover-story for TIME Magazine.
The two were brought together for a photo shoot on August 18th as Trump began to establish himself as a ‘real contender’ in the presidential elections, reports Time Magazine.
The 27-year-old bird isn’t as docile as it looks, however.
During the shoot, Trump reached for something next to Uncle Sam, spurring the eagle to lunge at the candidate. He, of course, recoiled – not without concern for his hair.
“How’s my hair look?”
“It’s hard to plan what animals will do,” said master falconer and wildlife rehabilitator Jonathan Wood
After the incident, Trump brushed off the unnerving exchange, saying:
“What you will do for a cover – this bird is seriously dangerous but beautiful.”
The recently released footage is going viral, with the internet creating gifs and memes of the hilarious incident.
