The Trump's family's immigrant story

Did you know that Donald Trump’s grandfather, Friedrich Trump, was actually a German barber who bought a one-way ticket to America and managed to escape military service back in 1885, whereas his mother, Mary, was Scottish? She moved to America in 1930 and became the U.S. citizen twelve years later. After all, America is a country of immigrants, isn’t it?

Mary started as a dirt-poor servant after she had moved to the U.S. The 18-year-old girl only had $50, which is approximately $732 today. She came into poverty escaping the even worse conditions of her native land. Good thing she met Fred at a dance party and married him six years later in 1936. Donald Trump was the fourth child of five in total and was born on June 14, 1946.

What was Donald like in his childhood?

In an extremely rare interview given to Ernie Anastos, the parents recall what kind of kid Donald was. Mary says that Donald loved playing Monopoly with his brother, Robert. But the boy’s most favorite game was building blocks. Does this mean Donald is still that same kid who loves building structures and negotiating to make money? Or maybe, these games simply helped him build his business empire?

As a grown man, Donald still would visit his beloved parents at least once a week no matter what. He loved his mother’s cooking and always praised his parents. Fred Trump, Donald’s father, died on June 25, 1999, at the age of 93. Donald’s mother, Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, died a year later on August 7, 2000, at the age of 88.
