Trump's grandfather: Was Trump's grandfather really banished from Germany?

  • Yees, it seems so.

    Historian Roland Paul has found a directive dated February 1905, which orders the deportation of President-Elect Donald Trump’s German grandfather from what was then the kingdom of Bavaria. Attracted by the gold rush, Friedrich Trump emigrated to America from Kallstadt – now in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate – at the age of 16. But he neglected to register the move. Twenty years later, in 1905, he wrote a letter to the Bavarian Prince Regent Luitpold asking permission to repatriate to his hometown for good.

  • Yes, he was.

    I strongly believe that Donald Trump' grandfather was actually banished from Germany. He was actually ordered by royal decree to leave the country and never return, according to recently unearthed documents. Friedrich Trump was banished in 1904, when he received a letter that ordered him to leave the kingdom of Bavaria within eight weeks.

  • History is a story.

    Trump's grandfather was not really banished from Germany, because if he had been, the story would be verified by historians. History belongs to the person who writes it. A lot of times, the story of history would be much different depending on who won the war. Trump is writing his own narrative about his grandfather.

  • Trump's family relationships aren't as true as some say

    There are allegations that Trump's grandfather was banished from Germany. This is a laughable claim because it sounds like someone who took a page out of the "birther" movement that demanded to see Barack Obama's birth certificate and came up with a similar libelous claim for Trump to discredit him.
