U.S. President erroneously says his father was born in Germany during a press conference with the NATO Secretary-General.
During a press conference with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, U.S. President Donald Trump wrongly claimed that his father, Fred Trump, was born in Germany.
The U.S. President´s geneological claim came after he criticized the government of German Chancellor Angela Merkel for "not paying their fair share."
“I have great respect for Angela and I have great respect for the country,” Trump said after accusing the Merkel administration of failing to pay their share in NATO. “My father is German, was German, born in a very wonderful place in Germany so I have a very great feeling for Germany," he mistakenly added.
