Theory suggests Donald Trump was born in PAKISTAN before he was adopted and taken to America
Before he was adopted and taken to America when his parents died in a car accident Trump was born in Pakistan according to the News.
A bizarre claim that Donald Trump was born in Pakistan before being adopted and taken to America has emerged online.
Pakistani news channel Neo News ran an extraordinary report suggesting that the President-elect was born as Dawood Ibrahim Khan in Waziristan in 1946.
Viewers immediately ridiculed the story, which was aired on Neo News last month before the election but has recently re-surfaced.
In the news report, the presenter claims: 'Believe it or not, Presidential candidate Donald Trump was born in Pakistan and not in America.'
The news channel also showed a picture of a young blond boy, which they claimed was a young Trump in Pakistan.
The bizarre theory is that Trump was taken to London by a British-Indian army captain, after his birth parents died in a car accident, before being adopted and taken to America in 1955.
Social media users took to Twitter to mock the news report.
One person tweeted: 'Seriously!????!!! . Pakistani news channel claims Trump was born in Pakistan !!! Seriously ????'
Another said 'This is insane', while one person simply added: 'Lol... Pakistani media is reporting Donald Trump was born in Pakistan!'
A series of unfounded tweets appear to be have been behind the report, with one person suggesting that Trump had been born into a Muslim family.
Prior to standing for President, Trump himself had for months fueled conspiracy theories over whether Barack Obama was born in the US, and thus eligible to be president.
An exasperated Obama called this nonsense and held a press conference in 2011 to show off his birth certificate, which stated that he was born in Hawaii.
