“Extra” can exclusively reveal that political opponents Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are related!

MyHeritage’s genealogy site Geni.com researched Donald and Hillary’s families and found they are actually related through shared English ancestors.

Geni discovered the first Duke and Duchess of Lancaster are their 18th great grandparents. John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster, married Katherine Swynford, Duchess of Lancaster, and John and Katherine are Donald and Hillary's shared 18th great grandparents. This makes the presidential candidates 19th cousins!

“Extra” caught up with author A.J. Jacobs, who teamed up with MyHeritage and studied the research done by Geni.
