According to Snopes, the image of the boy has been circulating since at least 2012. It was posted to Tumblr and credited to photographer Massoud Hossaini.
Furthermore, Trump released his own birth certificate in 2013 after clashing with comedian Bill Maher, which clearly states that he was born in Queens, New York.
Regardless: the idea that one picture of a young boy who vaguely resembles Trump is proof that he was born in Pakistan, is clearly nonsensical.
Nevertheless, some of Trump's most truth-defying moments included repeatedly attacking Barack Obama with 'birther' conspiracies, claiming the Hawaii-born president was actually born in Kenya and that his birth certificate was "a fraud".
And some of his most vicious rhetoric targeted Muslims and immigrants, calling them terrorists, threatening to deport them all and to ban them from entering the country.
So this turn of events is a pleasingly karmic twist.
