Mr Trump has previously singled out Germany for "not paying their fair share".

You'll get the latest updates on this topic in your browser notifications. I have great respect for (German Chancellor) Angela (Merkel), my father is German, was German.

With the Trump administration and European Union countries deliberating over how to break the stalemate, it may not be long before we hear the president invoke his father's spurious German provenance once again.

It could be that President Trump was thinking about his grandfather, Friedrich Trump. Trump's grandfather Friedrich Trump was born in Kallstadt, Germany but emigrated to the US when he was 16. None other than The Bronx, in attractive New York City, New York.

Friedrich Trump was expelled from Germany in 1905, apparently because he had emigrated illegally.

This is apparently the third time President Trump has falsely stated that his father was born in Germany.

Vigil for rapper Nipsey Hussle ends in chaos, injuries
Los Angeles police spokeswoman Meghan Aguilar described it to CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS as "absolutely chaotic, mass panic". Nipsey, 33, was shot six times and died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso, according to the medical examiner.

And just days before, he made the same claim at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

USA website The Smoking Gun previous year published a photo it said was of Fred Trump's birth certificate, which lists his place of birth as 539 East 177 Street, on 11 October 1905.

Vox's Aaron Rupar reported Tuesday that "even by Trump's standards, it was a troubling performance". My mother was Scotland. "And - you know I love those countries".

Trump's mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, was born in Europe. "It is very unfair". So we'll see how that all comes out. "People are paying and I am very happy with the fact they are paying".

Trump said that he was also looking for a better relationship with Russian Federation - now, as 70 years ago, seen as the primary threat by the Western alliance.

"What we have to do is Congress has to meet quickly and make a deal", the president said.
