Is the president’s son a time traveler? Sounds like a silly question, but this is what the good folks of 4chan have been pondering over this past month; and all things considered, its not really that far of a stretch. It all begun when one /pol/ack discovered a 19th century author of fiction by the name of Ingersoll Lockwood. Lockwood, who died in 1855 (91 and 151 years before President Donald Trump and his son were born), wrote several stories centered around a fictional character named “Baron Trump”.
The first two books, titled “The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulgar” and “Baron Trump’s Marvellous Underground Journey”, tell the story of Baron Trump, an aristocratically wealthy young man living in “Castle Trump”, who is bored of the luxurious lifestyle he has grown so accustomed to. Young Trump decides to pay a visit to Russia, to embark on an extraordinary adventure that will shape the rest of his life. Both of the books are archived by the Library of Congress and can be read in full on Archive.org.
It get’s spookier: Baron Trump is mentored in the books by “the masters of all masters”, a man named “Don”. Before leaving for his voyage through the unknown, Trump is told of his family’s motto: “The pathway to glory is strewn with pitfalls and dangers. Having bid farewell to his family, Trump heads to Russia to locate an entrance into alternate dimensions. The first two books state that there is no recorded history of Baron Trump’s death, instead, he finds a time machine and travels to the future – The is where the third book comes in.
