President Donald Trump’s children are often in the spotlight but little is known about his parents.
Mr Trump is the son of immigrants with German heritage on his father’s family side and Scottish on his mother’s.
His father, Fred C. Trump, made his fortune by building single-family homes for middle class families in Queens and Brooklyn during and after World War Two.
While his mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, moved to the US at the age of 18 and became part of the New York elite after her marriage with Fred Trump.
Here’s what you need to know about the US President’s parents:
Frederick Christ Trump, Donald Trump’s father, was born in 1905 in New York shortly after his parents were forced to move back to the US from Germany.
Fred’s father died when he was just 13 years old from pneumonia.
While still a teenager, he founded a construction business, called it E. Trump & Son, with his mother Elizabeth.
However, he made his fortune later on by building affordable housing for middle class families of Brooklyn and Queens.
By 1938, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle described him as a prominent Long Island builder, and the “Henry Ford of the home-building industry.”
In 1973, the government agency’s Civil Rights Division filed a suit against the Trumps due to evidence that their company was discriminating against minorities by not renting properties to Puerto Ricans and black families. The case was settled in 1975 without the family admiting to wrongdoing.
Up until the 1980s he hid his German roots telling his acquaintances that he was of Swedish origins. His nephew, John Walter, later explained: ”He had a lot of Jewish tenants and it wasn’t a good thing to be German in those days.”
According to his New York Times 1999 obituary, he was “self-made” man who built more “more than 27,000 apartments”.
He was also known to be a “frugal” businessman, who did not believe in displays of wealth.
Fred Trump married Mary McLeod, in 1936 after meeting her at a party. They had five children and the current US president is the second-youngest.
Although Donald Trump has often claimed to be self-made, an investigation by New York Times later revealed that his father gave him at least $413m (£315m) from his real estate empire over the years.
The Times also reported that Fred transferred some of this fortune through suspect tax schemes.
Mary Anne MacLeod
Mary Anne MacLeod was born in the village of Tong on the Scottish Isle of Lewis.
According to genealogist Bill Lawson, she was the last in a modest family of 10 children.
At the time, life was difficult in the islands, which prompted Mary Anne to move to the US aged only 18 in search of domestic work.
Mr Lawson told the BBC: “Mary Anne MacLeod was from a very large family, nine siblings, and the move at that time was away from the island.
“The move by Viscount Leverhulme to revive the island had gone bust and there was not much prospect for young people.
“What else could she do?”
She met Donald Trump’s father Fred six years later and became part of New York’s elite. After her wedding to the wealthy property developer she became active with charity work and raised their five children.
Mary Anne became an American citizen in 1942 and returned only occasionally to her native Scotland.
