As some of you may know, there is a MacLeod descendant currently running for President of the US. Donald Trump’s mother, Mary MacLeod, was born in Scotland and lived for some time on the Isle of Lewis. Opinions on the quality of his candidacy are widely divided, both in the US and in Scotland. With one island author asking “…What have we spawned?”
Regardless of the results of the upcoming election, there have already been a number of US Presidents who can trace their roots back to Scotland. Wikipedia lists 22 presidents with Scottish ancestry, including President Obama, President Clinton, and both Bush presidents.
