Grandfather Trump

Friedrich Trump

Friedrich Trump, grandfather to Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Friedrich was the first Trump to migrate to America, to avoid conscription in his native Germany. This photo was probably taken in 1918, the year of his death at the age of 49. He had become fairly wealthy, in part due to running hotels and restaurants that included prostitution as one of their services.
