Here's what 12 US political leaders looked like as kids

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last year, you'll be well acquainted with figures such as Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. But while we're used to seeing such political leaders as grey-haired 50-somethings, they were once children too, and wholly unaware that one day they'd be responsible for leading vast swathes of Western society. So here are what some of the biggest US politicians looked like as tots, and some are pretty much unrecognisable.

Well, I think we have all learnt that Joe Biden was an absolute hunk, and that Barack and Michelle Obama have aged incredibly gracefully - Malia and Sasha, you've lucked out with that gene pool.
