Before she became Donald Trump’s mother, Mary Anne MacLeod was a poor Scottish immigrant who boarded a steamship bound for America in 1930. With just $50 in her pocket, she moved in with her sister and worked as a maid — until she married an up-and-coming businessman named Frederick Trump.
After her husband made a fortune in real estate, her life changed forever. From the finest fur coats to the most exquisite vacations, Mary Anne MacLeod was truly living the American dream. But despite her unexpected wealth, she was more than happy to share with others. She devoted much of her time to philanthropic causes, including cerebral palsy and aiding intellectually disabled adults, and continued to do so until the day she died. #HistoryLand
