'Trump' is a British Slang Word. Here's What It Means.

For almost a year now, the word 'Trump' has been trending heavily  on social media and international news outlets amid Donald Trump's bid for the presidency. But did you know that the word has an alternate meaning in many parts of Britain? Laurence Brown explains.

Laurence Brown is a British man writing his way through the truly bizarre world of America - a place he sometimes accidentally calls home and a place he still hasn't quite figured out after seven years. Thankfully, his journey is made 12% easier by the fact that his accent makes him sound much smarter than he is. For evidence of this, subscribe to his popular Lost in the Pond web series over on YouTube.

I honestly have never heard this word for fart (I am from London). Is it used in the North?

I'm from the midlands and we've always called them trumps. Due to this we lovingly refer to the future (hope not!) president as Duck Fart :-)

we say you've trumped, meaning you've farted. North East and North West saying.

I'm from London and would think most people here are aware of the word and its meaning.
