Uncovered Trump Letter Reveals Truth About His Family

An interesting letter has been unearthed by archivists that provides an inside look at Trump's family history.

Facing deportation can be a life-altering experience, and that often gets lost in the shuffle of the various immigration debates. While it’s easy to look at things from a cut and dry perspective of those that are in the country legally have nothing to worry about, sometimes it’s not that simple. Sometimes, events are simply out of the control of those that are facing deportation, and that can lead to impassioned pleas from them for their case to be heard. Here’s a perfect example of that, and it comes courtesy of President Donald Trump’s grandfather. Yes, seriously.

As the Inquisitr reports, Friedrich Trump returned to his native Germany from the U.S. in 1905. He was ordered to leave the country by royal decree, but he wasn’t feeling it. That prompted him to write an impassioned letter, which he addressed to the “Most Serene, Most Powerful Prince Regent! Most Gracious Regent and Lord!”

“I was born in Kallstadt on March 14, 1869. My parents were honest, plain, pious vineyard workers. They strictly held me to everything good — to diligence and piety, to regular attendance in school and church, to absolute obedience toward the high authority,” the letter read in part.

“After my confirmation, in 1882, I apprenticed to become a barber. I emigrated in 1885, in my sixteenth year. In America I carried on my business with diligence, discretion, and prudence. God’s blessing was with me, and I became rich. I obtained American citizenship in 1892. In 1902 I met my current wife. Sadly, she could not tolerate the climate in New York, and I went with my dear family back to Kallstadt.”

Sounds like everything was going well, but then the bottom fell out.

“The town was glad to have received a capable and productive citizen. My old mother was happy to see her son, her dear daughter-in-law, and her granddaughter around her; she knows now that I will take care of her in her old age,” the letter continued. “But we were confronted all at once, as if by a lightning strike from fair skies, with the news that the High Royal State Ministry had decided that we must leave our residence in the Kingdom of Bavaria. We were paralyzed with fright; our happy family life was tarnished. My wife has been overcome by anxiety, and my lovely child has become sick.”

Friedrich then got to the real meat of the issue: he didn’t want to go, and he didn’t understand why he had to.

“Why should we be deported? This is very, very hard for a family. What will our fellow citizens think if honest subjects are faced with such a decree — not to mention the great material losses it would incur. I would like to become a Bavarian citizen again,” the letter added. “In this urgent situation I have no other recourse than to turn to our adored, noble, wise, and just sovereign lord, our exalted ruler His Royal Highness, highest of all, who has already dried so many tears, who has ruled so beneficially and justly and wisely and softly and is warmly and deeply loved, with the most humble request that the highest of all will himself in mercy deign to allow the applicant to stay in the most gracious Kingdom of Bavaria.”

Despite the impassioned plea, Friedrich was deported and returned to New York City.
