Uncanny: Matthew Smith, 40, was at the pub with friends in Middlesbrough when he spotted the likeness to the President

But Matthew quickly stopped himself and vowed to keep the scratching, which has now been safe in his home for a whole year. 

The solicitor said: ‘It’s definitely the hair that makes it.

‘I was enjoying a packet of pork scratchings washed down with a stout or two at my local pub with a couple of mates.

‘I noticed that one of the porcine snacks bore a quite uncanny resemblance to a certain Donald J Trump – much to the amusement of myself and my drinking companions.’

The discovery took place at Matthew’s local pub, the Linthorpe Hotel in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire.

Matthew said: ‘Everyone around the table was in agreement that it definitely resembled “the Donald” – it’s definitely down to the hairs and the inimitable, distinctive comb over effect.

‘It was unanimously decided that the pork scratching should not be eaten and should be preserved for as long as possible.

‘It just seemed a shame to throw it away. It’s not every day you’re lucky enough to stumble upon a bar snack that so uncannily resembles a notorious world leader.

‘I took it home in the packet and thankfully it wasn’t damaged as Samuel Smith’s pork scratchings are known for their particularly robust constitution.

‘As thoroughly tragic as this probably sounds, I do still own the pork scratching and it resides safely within the drawer of my desk in my office at home.’
