In the latest episode of “Story Hour,” the Lincoln Project reveals, by reading an excerpt from Mary Trump’s book Too Much and Never Enough that Donald Trump’s mother came to the United States in 1930 via “chain migration.”

The Presenter than points out that, because the future mother of Mr. Trump was a White Anglo Saxon Protestant, she would be allowed entry to the United States “under her son’s Draconian new immigration rules, introduced nearly 90 years later.”


The presenter concludes by saying “That was a heartwarming story. Now, Donald, your own mother was an immigrant. Shame on you.”

The ad successfully shows Mr. Trump’s bigotry toward nonwhite (Anglo Saxon) immigrants and hypocrisy.

Tune in later for another Lincoln Project presentation of “Story Hour.”
