Donald Trump's Tennis Photo refers to a photograph of United States President Donald Trump playing tennis while wearing a pair of white, semi-translucent shorts. The photo inspired parody illustrations and numerous photoshops after it began circulating online in mid-2017.


On February 13th, 2000, Donald Trump was photographed playing tennis at Mar-A-Lago while wearing an all-white outfit, with one photograph prominently featuring his backside in which the outline of his underwear can be seen showing through his shorts (shown below). The photograph remained relatively unknown until June 22nd, 2017, when Deadspin[2] posted it in an article titled "This Shitty Tennis Player Would One Day Be President."
