President's bottom, bottom President (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

trump

Here is my best explanation:

'president' is the definition.

(Donald Trump)

'president's bottom bottom' is the subsidiary indication.

'bottom' indicates one should take the final letters.

'bottom' becomes 'rump' ('rump' can be a synonym of 'bottom'**).

The final letter of 'president' is 't'.

't'+'rump'='trump'

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for trump that I've seen before include "take trick", "Outdo (with a card?)", "obstruction gone", "Card of the most powerful suit", "High card", "Powerful playing card", "Powerful card - the last one to be heard at the Day of Judgement", "Valuable card", "A playing card given added value in some games" and "Card of designated top suit".)
