Why Is Donald Trump Orange?

What's with the tangerine tone? If you compare photos of Donald Trump over time, you'll see that about 10 years ago he began transitioning from a man with a typical Scots-German Caucasian skin tone to one with skin matching the Pantone color 15-1449 or "Gold Flame."
 
In many photos the skin around his eyes is much lighter than the surrounding Trumpskin. The effect suggests that he was wearing goggles in a tanning bed.
 
Possibly related, Mother Jones reports that in 2006 one of Trump's business partners and longtime buddies, Steve Hilbert, became CEO of a corporation focused on tanning beds, sunless tanning lotions and the like. (This was shortly after Hilbert presided over one of America's biggest bankruptcies). The sunless tanning company helped fund "The Apprentice" and agreed to a $1,ooo,ooo up-front payment to Melania Trump. She was lined up to promote a CAVIAR-BASED skincare line. Melania's fishy deal was cancelled when another stakeholder argued in court that the contract was "corporate waste."
