Islamabad: A Pakistani news channel ran a news report stating that US President-elect Donald Trump is originally from Pakistan. The report also stated that although they have not verified the fact, many people have been claiming it on social media.
In the video clip that's going viral on the internet, the anchor narrates the story of how Trump was born and brought up in the country and later travelled to the US.
