A Pakistani channel reported that Donald Trump is from Pakistan A Pakistani channel reported that Donald Trump is from Pakistan

As bizarre as it may sound, this report from Pakistani news channel Neo News actually ran a story stating that US President-elect Donald Trump is from Pakistan. Though the report said that it’s not them but people on social media who are saying this, the fact that it was even considered seems unfathomable.

In a video clip from the show that’s going viral, the anchor narrates the whole story of Trump being born in Pakistan and how he reached the United States. The report is from last month when Trump was still the Republican candidate. Believe it or not, the reporter said, “Presidential candidate Donald Trump was born in Pakistan and not in America”.

And wait till you hear the story. The channel has the ‘real’ name of Trump and the place he was born in. The attribution came much later in the report. The report based on comments on social media said that the President-elect was born as Dawood Ibrahim Khan in Waziristan in 1954 where he also received his primary education. Later, he lost his parents in a road accident after which British Indian Army Captain took Dawood to London. The Trump family finally adopted him in 1955 and brought him to America. Adding to that, the channel also showed his childhood pictures!

As if Trump winning wasn’t surprising enough for the world, we have this piece of news to deal with.

Now if you’re not laughing on the floor already, watch the video here.

        shaheen ali, sorry to burst your bubble, there was no country called india before 15/08/1947. It is a consoling myth propogated by ignorant fools like you. There was a british colony called "British india"dia was a geographical term and no nation of any sort existed before 1947. If that is not the case, then please calrify who the prime minister, president or king of india was before 1947? lt;br/gt;stan was not formed out of india. "British india" became two countries. There could easily have been more countries made out of "British India" because there were many independent, ethinicaly and linuistically varying kingdoms which had a choice to either remain independent or merged with the two new nations. These kindoms were sadly in a constant war with each other through out history. lt;br/gt;Indians will one day have to come to terms with these fact and will have to stop finding ways to ociate themselves with stan all the time. Be pround of being an Indian, your culture and you ethnicity.

                            If the laughter has not ended there, then please also note, that not only Trump! but there are many other great personalities who were born in stan, one of them is William Shakespeare, whose actual name was Sheikh Pir, when his extra-ordinary literary intellect was discovered, the British hijacked him and took him to England,where he was taught English Language and gave him the first name 'William'. That's how the greatest 'dramatist' of all time was born!So now the world knows this great man as ' William Shakespeare. How's that !!

                              it must be true. Trump madness can come only from stan. Well, stanis have gone mad. I will not be astonished if Jesus, Buddha, Krishna and of course Mohammed all have their ancestry found by stanis in stan.

                                  It doesn't make any sense. The year Trump was born (1946) there was only one country called India, stan was born from India later. So if you think this rumor is true, Trump was technically born in India.

                                    Well you are technically wrong my friend. If you think this rumor is true you could have said "one more sad contribution to the by India" because Trump was born in 1946 and in that year there was no stan but India only.
