Brussels | A Belgium research team at the University of Brussels has discovered an improbable link between Donald Trump, Adolf Hitler and Barrack Hussein Obama.
If the family tree of Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler were already known to share genetic ties, the Belgium researchers were surprised to find that president Obama also had common relatives with the two other politicians.
â€śIf the links tying the German origins of the Trump family to Hitlerâ€™s genealogy were already well known, finding common ancestors between Hitler and Barrack Obama as well was definitely a surprise,â€ť admits leading researcher Jean-Anthony Dâ€™Alsace. â€śIt appears that Obamaâ€™s European gene pool is even more closely linked to the Hitler familyâ€ť he admits, visibly astounded.
Adolf Hitler and the Trump family
Donald Trumpâ€™s German origins are well known explains research assistant Thomas Emmanuel-Kant.
â€śDonald Trumpâ€™s grandfather, Fred Trump, who was originally called Friedrich Drumpf and was born in Kallstadt, Germany in 1869, came to America at the age of 16,â€ť he explains. â€śWeÂ have found that Fred Trumpâ€™s great-grandmotherâ€™s second cousin was married to Alister Huns in 1712, a common ancestor to Adolf Hitler,â€ť he told local reporters.
Obama and Hitlerâ€™s genealogy
Even more surprising are the close ties between the United States president and the Hitler family, admits the team of researchers.
â€śThe European family line of President Barrack Hussein Obama and Adolf Hitler are clearly unmistakable, it is even surprising that this information was not disclosed before as it is self-evident,â€ť admits researcher Jeanne-Marie Lafontaine. â€śThe family tree ofÂ Ann Dunham, Barrack Obamaâ€™s mother, is truly fascinating. We have found common relatives not only with the Hitler family, which both families are linked together closely by multiple marriages within the last century, but also with BaronÂ Lionel Nathan de Rothschild, a high profile Jewish international banker and English politician, andÂ Otto von Bismarck, Germanyâ€™s first chancellor who is at the origin of the modern German stateâ€ť she acknowledges, visibly enthused by the discovery. â€śObamaâ€™s gene pool definetely predestinated him to be a great leader it seems,â€ť she admits with humor.
A 2007 genealogical survey from the New England Historic Genealogical Society also found that Obama is a distant cousin to Dick Cheney and a more recently published study found he is related to George Bush as well.
