The miner shown on one of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign posters is actually a Dutch model, website Buzzfeed has pointed out.
The poster, with the text ‘a working America is a winning America, features Trump in a baseball hat alongside a tough looking miner.
However, far from being an American worker the miner is a Dutch model named Jan Jonkhout who was photographed by Haarlem photographer Ysbrand Cosijn.
The photo is one of a series featuring Jonkhout and available via stock photo agency Shutterstock.
