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.
