    Perhaps it is not universal but to "trump" in UK is to fart.
    e.g. "Has someone just trumped around here?"
    Can also be used as a noun.
    Each and every day I learn something new.

    That is the reason for my low Rating I have much higer Ratings on Chess Training sites… but that only Shows that I don't use my potential 😉
    Like myself you probably move too quickly, which is one the reasons. Or you've had some medical issues. Or unlike me you chat too much in the forums. 😉

    Yes.
    It comes from the second etymology of trump ... to make the sound of a trumpet.
    (The first etymology is from "triumph"😉

    The word and both meanings existed long before Mr. Trump did.

    Yes, but it wasn't as well known or popular until Trump made the scene Politically. 😉

    My family have been trumping for as long as I can remember!

    I also had a Teaching Assistant who referred to
    pupils with wind as "trumping" or "bottom burps".
    That was 10 years ago,

    Correct, the "Polite Burp" would be through your mouth and you must always say: 'excuse me'! 😉
