    Default Who do you consider to be german?

    I mean, do you think that someone who is a descendent of Germans but was born in another country/and or has other european ascendency can be considered a german if he defines himself like one?

    Teutone says yes. He says Trump and Gründig are Germans. I think many think like him.

    No. I'm an American of Germanic descent, but I wouldn't consider myself a "German."

    Trump is more Scottish than German. His grandfather was from Germany, but his mother came from Scotland.

    But what if someone considers himself a german. Trump said he is a proud German-American? Not everyone thinks the same. I know a guy who said he is american and mixed gypsy and jewish. He thinks he is a gypsy but his brother thinks he is jewish. What about that?

    He did.


    Also, he's not more Scottish than German, he's half of both.

    This is called Volksdeutsche. In pre-modern times, most people defined themselves by their ethnicity not geographical boundaries. Thus, the Siebenburgers of Romania were historically considered Germans, not Romanians. Personally, I think a knowledge of German should be an indispensable requirement (but not the only one, obviously) to identify as a German. In this way, Trump is not a German.

    Any German speaking person with 4 German speaking grandparents. These are the standards to qualify as most ethnicities.

    That's why New World people with thousands of European ancestries don't qualify as any of these ethnicities.
