What is the correct Russian spelling of the last name of the US President-elect, Donald Trump? I've seen both Трамп and Трумп. Which is correct?

    Tрумп is some kind of stupid joke actually. Also it would be nice if you'll support your claim about you've seen Трумп used by a link.

    @raxacoricofallapatorius Ok, it may be not so obvious, but giving link to a letmegooglethatforyou is wrong. Partially because google gives different results based on your browsing history, and partially because Трумп (meaning Donald Trump) is quite rare and in such case the results on the first page may be completely different for different users.

    @raxacoricofallapatorius if you want to find the correct spelling of the name of a famous person, find their page on the English site for Wikipedia and then switch to its analogous page in Russian (русский). Problem solved.

    @Evgeniy: Yes, I see that now. I was just surprised by the nastiness ("no competence", " refusing to provide an evidence", "hadn't done any minimal research", "obvious", "obvious", etc.), since I'd done all the research I was capable of. Perhaps it's just a cultural thing (or even a language thing, who would be ironic).

    @Artemix: Yes, not only was he offended (apparently) he overreacted and didn't bother explaining his reaction until he'd reverted twice my attempt to explain (at his request). Basically all the confusion here is just down to really bad modding I'm afraid. If this site wants go come out of beta, it needs better mods.
