Trump’s Immigrant Grandpappy Made The Family Fortune On Stolen Land, Hookers And Booze
Donald Trump is no stranger to racism and demonstrating his hatred towards immigrants. However, he has failed to reveal that his grandfather was an immigrant himself, and one who made the majority of his fortune on stolen land, hookers, and alcohol.
Even worse, the majority of Trump’s fortune was built on the backs of immigrant laborers who helped him build his hotels and the majority of his clothing lines are manufactured in third-world countries.
Addicting Info reports:
Trump’s grandfather came to the U.S. from Germany in the 1880s. Back then there was no such thing as an immigration quota, so a young man named Friedrich changed his name to the American sounding Frederick, became a naturalized citizen and set off for Seattle to make himself a fortune.
Thus began the great legacy that is the Trump real estate empire. Upon landing in Seattle, Frederick leased a small restaurant called “the Poodle Dog” that advertised “private rooms for ladies,” which was code for “prostitutes for hire.” He learned quickly how to turn sex and booze into a profitable venture.
Soon after, young Trump learned that John D. Rockefeller was financing a mining operation to the North in Monte Cristo. Frederick may have had no morals, but he was a sly dog when it came to making money. He left Seattle behind, filed a fraudulent mineral claim and built a new hotel and brothel on land he didn’t own to serve the mining community.
Again Grampa Trump flourished. He made a killing delivering food, booze and girls to people who couldn’t afford it, something his grandson would continue in the casino business a century later. This Trump, however, never had to abuse the system and file bankruptcy. He watched Rockefeller and when he saw the mogul move out, he left right behind him, avoiding the huge losses that were bound to happen when Monte Cristo dried up.
Frederick settled again on the trails between the Puget Sound and the Yukon, setting up trail-side brothels to continue his legacy of cashing in on the dreams and hard work of others. Only now he attracted the attention of the Canadian Mounted Police and was forced to flee back to Germany.
In a little bit less than 2 decades, Friedrich “Frederick” Trump had made $600,000. Back in Germany, he married a girl ten years younger than him and before long they were expecting a child. Trump’s legal troubles were just beginning, however. In Germany at the turn of the century, all men were required to serve in the military. Since Trump left before he was old enough and returned too old to serve, his citizenship was stripped and he was sent packing.
Back to America went Donald Trump’s grandfather. His father would be born on American soil to a man who was the worst Germany had to offer and his young wife, a citizen by birth. Friederich Trump was an immigrant and a criminal who abused the system, making Donald Trump’s entire campaign quite possibly the biggest farce ever in American politics.
