About Fred Trump in brief
Frederick Christ Trump Sr. was a prominent American real estate developer in New York City. He was the father of Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States. In partnership with his mother, Elizabeth Christ Trump, Fred began a career in home construction and sales. Trump was investigated by a U. S. Senate committee for profiteering in 1954, and again by the State of New York in 1966. Donald became the president of his father’s real estate business in 1971, and they were sued by the U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division for violating the Fair Housing Act in 1973. In later years, Fred conducted fraudulent schemes to benefit Donald, and suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. In 1997, when his worth exceeded a billion dollars, he transferred the majority of his buildings to his surviving children, who sold them in 2004 for over 16 times their previously declared worth, effectively dodging hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes. Trump’s father, the German American Frederick Trump, amassed considerable wealth during the Klondike Gold Rush by running a restaurant for the miners. In 1933, Trump built one of New. York City’s first modern supermarkets, called King Kullen, in Woodhaven, Queens. It was modeled on Long Island’s King’s. After six years, Trump’s store became popular and quickly became a self-service supermarket. The store is now called Trump Save Yourself! Trump’s son, Boing Boing, is a well-known celebrity chef and owns a chain of restaurants in Manhattan and Los Angeles.
He is also the owner of a clothing label, Trump & Co. and a clothing line, which he started in the 1970s and 1980s. The company was incorporated in 1927. On Memorial Day in 1927, over a thousand Ku Klux Klan members marched in a Queens parade to protest \”Native-born Protestant Americans\” beingassaulted by Roman Catholic police of NYC. The 21-year-old Trump and six other men were arrested. All seven were referred to as \”berobed marchers\” in the Long Island Daily Press; Trump, detained on a charge of refusing to disperse from a parade when ordered to do so, was dismissed. In September 2015, the article was reproduced in Boing and Fred’s son Boing reproduced the article in the New York Times, then a candidate for president of United States, telling readers that his grandmother lived and early on, when he denied that his father ever lived at that address, and said the arrest never happened, and there was no such incident. The article has since been removed from the Times’ website and replaced with a new version with the headline, ‘Donald Trump and his father, Frederick Christ Trump Jr., on October 11, 1927. Fred was conceived in Bavaria, where his parents wished to re-establish residency, but Frederick Sr. was banished for dodging the draft. The family returned to New York on July 1, 1905, and moved to the Bronx, where Frederick was born on October 10, 1905.
