Trump’s mother departed the UK in 1930, when she was 18 years old, and arrived in the USA as an unskilled worker (domestic-maid) to take jobs from Americans during the Great Depression, when unemployment had already gone up to 10% and was rising. This saved the UK welfare money, all while starving American children cried for a little bit of bread in their hand before they slept. She wasn’t forced out like earlier Scots. Past time for the UK to take him back and put him on his maternal island without transport. Then he can grow up.
Mary Anne MacLeod was his mother.

“Mayor of London Says Trump Baby Protest Blimp Can Fly
July 05, 2018 9:33 PM VOA News
The mayor of London has approved a protester’s request to fly a blimp depicting Donald Trump as an angry, orange diaper-wearing baby during the U.S. president’s visit to the British capital next week.
The 6-meter tall inflatable will fly over Parliament between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. local time on July 13 during a scheduled protest.
“The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms,” Mayor Sadiq Khan’s office said Thursday.
Leo Murray, the activist behind the blimp dubbed Trump Baby said the mayor’s office originally did not approve of the blimp but “following a huge groundswell of public support for our plan, it looks like City Hall has rediscovered its sense of humor.”
Murray used an online crowdfunding site to raise more than $20,000 asking donors to “make our six-meter high orange, inflatable baby with a malevolent face and tiny hands fly over central London during Trump’s U.K. visit.”
During the three-day visit, Trump will meet with the Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Theresa May.” https://www.voanews.com/a/mayor-of-london-says-trump-baby-protest-blimp-can-fly/4470144.html
TRUMP’S MOTHER WAS BRITISH. SHE WAS BORN AND GREW UP IN THE UK. THE UK NEEDS TO ACCEPT ITS RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIM:
“Born before 1983 to a British mother
You can register as a British citizen if you fulfil all of the criteria:
* you would have automatically become a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by descent if women had been able to pass this citizenship on to their children in the same way as men at the time of your birth
* you would have had the right of abode in the UK and have become a British citizen on 1 January 1983 if you had become a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies
* you’re of ‘good character’ – see the guidance to form UKM for details”
He can probably still pass the “good character” part for now, believe it or not, as Mueller is working slowly.
NB: This isn’t to say that being a good maid doesn’t take skill. However, she didn’t go to maid school or anything like that, to our knowledge. And, there were plenty of unemployed maids in America with experience after the 1929 stock market crash.
