Donald Trump claimed grandfather “came here from Sweden” in his book The Art of the Deal.

In truth, Frederich Trump arrived at Ellis Island from Germany, to be precise the small town of Kallstadt.
Frederich worked for a brief time as a barber in New York and then headed to Canada for the Klondike Gold Rush. There he ran what has been variously described as a restaurant and a whorehouse. He then returned with his fortune to Kallstadt, where he married a young woman named Elizabeth Christ who grew up across the street.


He’s spending part of this weekend continuing to troll Elizabeth Warren on Twitter and accusing her of misrepresenting her heritage.
