In 1905, President Donald Trump’s grandfather, Friedrich Trump, wrote a letter to the de facto ruler of Bavaria, begging not to deport him and his family from Germany. The letter was written in German and has been translated into English and reprinted in the latest issue of Harper’s magazine.
In 1885, Fredrich moved to the United States from the village of Kallstadt (in Germany). He was started working as a barber and made a luck in the Klondike Gold Rush. In 1892, Friedrich became an American citizen.
Friedrich was issued with a deportation notice in 1905: “The American citizen and pensioner Friedrich Trump, currently residing in Kallstadt, is hereby informed that he is to depart the state of Bavaria, or face deportation.”
In a response to it, Fredrich requested the monarchy:
“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.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.”
“[When I came back from the U.S.] 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.”
