Donald Trump’s Grandfather Begged Not to Be Deported from Germany, Letter Reveals

Date:

Donald Trump’s German grandfather begged the prince of Bavaria not to deport him from Germany in the early 20th century,  a newly uncovered letter has revealed.

Friedrich Trump, who built up a fortune through restaurants and boarding houses after arriving in America as an immigrant, was born in the Bavarian town of Kallstadt.

But according to German newspaper Bild, he decided to return to his hometown in 1901 along with his wife, Elisabeth Christ, only to be issued with a deportation notice a few years later.

It is understood the notice was issued after the German authorities discovered he had never carried out military service before emigrating to America.

He was therefore banned from reclaiming his citizenship, local historian Roland Paul told Bild.

“The American citizen and pensioner Friedrich Trump, currently residing in Kallstadt, is hereby informed that he is to depart the state of Bavaria, or face deportation,” the notice states.

Mr Trump’s grandfather even resorted to pleading with the prince of Bavaria not to deport him, Bild revealed, in an emotionally-charged letter.

He begged the “well-loved, noble, wise and just” monarch to make an exception and block the deportation order in the note, but a court would later deny the request.

The Trump family was then forced to abandon Germany for good and move back to America in 1905, when Elisabeth was pregnant with the US president-elect’s father, Fred Trump.

The emergence of the letter has raised eyebrows in some quarters due to Mr Trump’s hardline stance on immigration.

Since his shock election victory, the business mogul has vowed to deport 3m illegal immigrants from the United States.
