New research has uncovered the close family ties of two of the top politicians in the US.

Ancestry website claims that the Republican candidate Donald Trump is related to the medieval monarch, King Richard III.

He was also reported to have close familial ties to Hillary Clinton, from the Democrats.

Geneticist Dr. Turi King, the University of Leicester scientist who identified Richard III’s DNA, said: “We know that John of Gaunt did have several children. If, for example, just one of them had two children, who each had two children, who each had two children and so on, then there could easily be several million people alive today descended from John of Gaunt.”

Dr. King’s colleague, Professor Kevin Schurer added: “If Trump and Gaunt are related, then by definition he is also related to Richard, since Richard was Gaunt’s great-great nephew.”
