„After years leading the false charge that President Barack Obama was born outside of the United States, President-elect Donald Trump is facing his own minor ‚birtherism‘ moment, with a Pakistani television network claiming the New Yorker was born in Pakistan. ‚Believe it or not, presidential candidate Donald Trump was born in Pakistan and not in America,# the Urdu-language Neo News reported last month in a video clip that went viral after Trump’s election victory on November 8. The report, not unlike the claims once made against Obama, appears to have originated with social media posts positing unsourced theories about Trump’s birth and previously unknown life in the Islamic Republic.
According to Neo News, Trump was born as Dawood Ibrahim Khan in the now-Taliban-controlled Waziristan region of the country in 1954. After his parents were killed in a car accident, a British Indian Army captain took little Dawood to London, where the Trump family later adopted him and brought him to America, the report claimed. Citing numerous tweets to back up the story, Neo News even provided a photo of the alleged young Trump, wearing what appears to be traditional Pakistani boys’ garb.“ (Bericht in der Times of Israel: „In bizarre ‚birther‘ twist, claims Trump is Pakistani“)
