Donald Trump was born here at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center on June 14, 1946. Along with Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, he is now the 3rd President born in the summer of 1946. 1946 is also now the only year in which 3 Presidents were born.

I stopped at Trump's birthplace in July 2017. It was a quick stop as parking was limited.

This is the Trump family gravesite. All Faiths Cemetery Queens, NY. Here are buried President Trump's parents, grandparents and older brother, who died of alcoholism in 1981. It is because of watching his brother's struggle with alcohol that Trump doesn't drink.

I have tried to visit the final resting places of Presidents parents for a few years now. Kind of a side hobby, if there's time. In planning for my recent trip I wasn't able to find much information on the exact location of this gravesite. Even when I called the cemetery they refused to give that information. Which is understandable. All I had was a few numbers to go by from Trumps brother's find a grave page. I got to the cemetery and acted like I was looking for a different grave in the same area. When I got there the numbers I had made a little more sense when looking at the map they gave me. Even so, it is a big cemetery and it took nearly 2 hours to find it. It felt like a pretty big win when I found it.


The next few pictures I took are of President Trump at campaign rallies during the 2016 election cycle.

  Trying to figure out sites connected to the current President, especially so soon in his term can be difficult. So far the big Trump site that I am missing is Trump Tower in Manhattan. But I added it to a long list of things to see in Manhattan someday.

   Donald Trump is our first non politician President since Eisenhower. He is also now the oldest President to take office at 70, beating out Ronald Reagan by a few months. The history of his term of office will most definitely be interesting.
