Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946 in New York City) is an American billionaire real estate businessman and the President of the United States of America after winning the 2016 presidential election as the candidate of the Republican Party. His grandfather was a German immigrant and his mother was born in Scotland.

Trump's presidential candidacy gained support from large parts of the White nationalist and alt-right movements due to his positions on issues such as immigration. White nationalists have different opinions on the Trump candidacy ranging from support to skepticism.[1] David Duke essentially endorsed Trump saying, "voting against Donald Trump at this point, is really treason to your heritage".[2] National Alliance commentator Kevin Strom said, "Let’s not waste our time on helping Donald Trump."[3]

Political positions

Trump has proposed to secure the United States border to Mexico by building a wall, and to deport illegal immigrants. He has taken a stance against corruption in Washington D.C.

Israel

Trump's defense and support for Israel has always been over the top. However recently in an interview he stated he wished to be "neutral" on the Israeli-Palestinian Question, claiming he wanted to try his hand at bringing a peace settlement to the Middle East if elected President.

Family

In 1927 The New York Times reported his father Fred Trump was arrested in a Ku Klux Klan brawl with the police.[4] Donald Trump, in an interview, denied the incident involving his father ever happened.

Trump has five children from three different marriages. Trump's oldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, is married to Jared Kushner and converted to his faith Judaism.
