In the 18th century the most popular pug in Italy was Trump! Thats right, Trump the pug. The English painter William Hogarth was the devoted owner of a series of Pugs. His 1745 self-portrait, which is now in London's Tate Gallery, includes his Pug, Trump. Perhaps "the Donald" was named after this fuzzy guy?
