"Once Mr. Drumph......"

Where did you get that from @nozzer?

A quick double check (not that I felt I needed to) and I find nothing to support that assertion.

You don't think you are protesting a bit too much here @jelv?

I think we all get the message friend, I'll certainly not be signing any petition.

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

How about a news source many of you seem to trust: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3479129/How-Donald-Trump-s-tax-dodging-migrant-grandpa-went-...

Friedrich Drumpf was 16 when he moved to New York in 1885

Apparently Trump is wanting to avoid Prince Charles.

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

I'd not trust any news source and as for the Mail @jelv, garbage full stop but so what if he changed his name, millions of others have done the same - in fact one of my paternal grandmothers did.

In the meantime and for those that find interest as an excuse to taint, perhaps somebody can dig out a copy of his Bavarian birth certificate or immigration papers as I'm sure they are out there somewhere.

Me? Not really interested either way TBH.

"Apparently Trump is wanting to avoid prince Charles"

Now there's a name changing family of German origin if ever there was one!

Extract from US Immigration Record dated 1885...  actually says "Friedr. Trumpf", although it is believed that this was a slightly incorrect entry because he apparently used the name Drumpf for a while (just assertions on that, no proof)..

Line 33 if you can make it out...

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

And records of course especially second hand are notorious for being inaccurate. I did catch a program on the Trump family a little while back where his grandfather was refused permission to stay back in Bavaria and this had been recorded so I suspect there lays the truth of the matter.

All good stuff

PS. Is he going to be the first ever American President not to claim Irish ancestry? Wink

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

Very unusual for a politician or president to say what he will do before getting elected and once elected doing what he said he would do.

The usual pattern is to promise the voters everything but deliver nothing.

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

Indeed, but like another lover of Bavaria whose name we dare not speak, he appeals to people's emotions rather than reason..... and look what happened there. 

Don't see him lasting long m'self.

@Minivanman

True.

Might someone even worse take his place ?

At least he tells everybody what he is doing but there are some who might do even worse and tell nobody what they are doing.

As you say it's unlikely he will last very long

Re: Petition to stop Donald Trump's proposed state visit

What do you think his character is seeing that?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
