The 2018 Winter Olympics are wrapping up, but in some old photos from 2004, President Trump can be seen carrying the Olympic torch in New York City.

According to the description from Getty Images, who own the photos, “Donald Trump [carried] the Olympic flame during Day 15 of the Athens 2004 Olympic Torch Relay on June 19, 2004 in New York, New York. The Olympic flame [traveled] to 34 cities in 27 countries en route to the Athens 2004 Olympic Games.”

These photos are pure America.

It’s a bit weird to see Trump without his signature suit-and-tie, but I think this outfit makes up for it ten fold.

Who in 2004 would’ve guessed this guy would end up being President of the United States?

His running form is seriously on point too. Absolute beast of a guy.

The closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea occurred Sunday February 25th. (RELATED: Ivanka Trump Will Lead US Delegation At Olympic Closing Ceremonies)
