Adolf Hitler’s oldest male descendant has broken his decades long silence from his New York home to give his view on Donald Trump and Angela Merkel.
Alexander Stuart-Houston is the great-nephew of the Nazi dictator but his family stopped using the infamous surname after the Second World War.
Alexander and his two surviving brothers Brian and Louis, have maintained silence and turned down all interviews.
However, the 68-year-old has spoken for the first time from the porch of his house in Patchogue, Long Island, New York state, after being approached by German tabloid Bild.
The Republican voter – whose middle name is Adolf – told the paper he thought Trump was a "liar" but said he was a fan of German Chancellor Merkel .
He told Bild: "The last person I would say I admire is Donald Trump.
"He is definitely not one of my favourites. Some things that Trump says are all right… It’s his manner that annoys me.
"And I just don’t like liars."
He said: "I always vote for the person who does the best job.
He added that he would vote for the Chancellor if he could.
He said: "I like her. She’s good. She seems to be an intelligent and smart person" and said she "does what she has to do" when asked about her handling of the refugee crisis.
Alexander’s father William Patrick Hitler had moved to America where he fought for the US Navy against his uncle.
After the war the family changed their name to Hiller and then later to Stuart-Houston.
William, whose father was Adolf’s half-brother Alois Hitler, was born in Liverpool in 1911 to an Irish mother.
He left England for Germany in the 1930s where he reportedly joined the National Socialist party and worked in a bank in Berlin.

However, like all German citizens he required the Fuhrer’s permission to change jobs – something Hitler apparently opposed to avoid accusations of favouritsm.
He wrote of his unhappiness in his job in a diary in which he appeared to blame his uncle for his troubles.
He later moved to America where he fought in the war, and then afterwards to Long Island – with wife Phyllis.
