"Seeing the not-so-imposing homes of his ancestors might bring him back to earth," Kallstadt's conservative mayor Thomas Jaworek told the Washington Post in an article published Tuesday. Born in Kallstadt, Freidrich Trump left the German town as a teenager to emigrate to America for a better life.

Despite his suggestion, Jaworek said he has little interest in hosting Trump due to the enormous security risks and media frenzy that would likely arise from such a trip. However, he noted that if the U.S. president did decide to visit, he hopes the trip will change his staunch views on migration and citizenship.

Mayor: Crackdown on immigrants already underway in NYC NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says he's getting reports that a nationwide crackdown on immigrants facing deportation is already underway in his city.

In addition to the lack of opportunities in Kallstadt, Friedrich was also expected to serve for a period in the military, as per German law.

According to Gwenda Blair's 2001 book, The Trumps: Three Generations That Built an Empire, Friedrich "seemed to have no choice but to leave."

"The stifling lack of opportunity in the village seemed to close in on him. Without any apparent opportunity for a better life, he saw what lay ahead was dreary, difficult, and poor," Blair added.

Trump on Sunday urged four progressive congresswomen — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib — to "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came."

"Then come back and show us how it is done," the president tweeted. "These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough. I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!"

Although the president did not name any of the congresswomen he was referring to, most agreed his remarks were directed at the four freshmen members of the so-called "Squad," all first-term progressives and women of color.
