Trump (plural Trumps)

  1. A surname​.
    • 1861, Anthony Trollope, chapter XXXII, in Orley Farm[1]:
      The house at which he was to lodge had been selected with considerable judgment. It was kept by a tidy old widow known as Mrs. Trump; but those who knew any thing of Hamworth affairs were well aware that Mrs. Trump had been left without a shilling, and could not have taken that snug little house in Paradise Row and furnished it completely out of her own means.
