Even before Donald Trump became president, he and his family are already celebrities in their own right. They’ve attracted attention because of their crazy wealth. Aside from that, Donald Trump’s hair and personality have its own followers and haters.
Now that Donald Trump is the president, the clan has become even hotter in the people’s eyes. People have become more curious about their past and personal lives. It’s like they’re living under the microscope. But the Trumps are used to that.
Even if they’ve been living under the public’s eye, there are still some secrets that the Trumps doesn’t want people to know. You think you know them? Check this list out, you might get shocked.
10. Trump Sisters
Among Donald Trump’s kids, only two of them are girls. Ivanka Trump from Donald’s first marriage and Tiffany Trump from his second marriage. Tiffany grew up in California with her mother while Ivanka was groomed for the spotlight and worked for the family business. Ivanka is now a successful entrepreneur and has a net worth of $150 million. Aside from that, she is often complimented by her father for her beauty.
Donald said to Vanity Fair about Ivanka, “What a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married, and, ya know, her father . . .” and her brother Eric calls her the favorite of the kids. While Tiffany has not worked in the family business and does not have the fortune of her older sister the two have a close relationship.
9. Would Date His Daughter
Aside from being a successful entrepreneur, Ivanka is also a successful model. She’s a perfect example of beauty and brains. A lot of men desire her and apparently so does his father. As creepy as it sounds it’s 100 percent true.
When Ivanka was a teenager, she launched a very successful modeling career. As she gained more attention from the public, her father said, “If she weren’t my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her.” That’s straight from the horse’s mouth.
8. The Youngest Trump
Barron, the youngest Trump attends the most expensive private school in New York City. It’s so exclusive, that the family has never released the prep school’s name. And even if they did, we probably don’t know the school anyway. We’re sure he’s rubbing elbows with some of America’s richest and most insured children.
Of course, as a Trump, you should be living the high life. So it’s no surprise that Barron Trump has his very own floor in the family’s Manhattan penthouse! But, Donald and Melania want him to experience life as a normal child, too. Though they have staff who cook and clean for them, they don’t have a nanny. Melania takes care of him and even picks him up from school! It would be hard to trust other people if you’re insanely rich.
Donald Trump Jr. is the oldest Trump child. He was born to Trump’s first wife, Ivana. He is now the Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization. He may be the only non-blonde Trump child but he’s a true blue Trump to the core.
Donald Trump Jr. is also a trophy hunter. He has reportedly been on several safaris in Zimbabwe and may have even killed a few endangered animals. (One of the perks of being a Trump?) He says that hunting did a lot to “keep [him] out of trouble as a kid.”
6. The Third
Eric Trump is the third Trump child. Like his siblings, he is very involved in his father’s company and has had a very successful career in business. He’s also married to an Associate Producer at CBS News and was also a former model.
Eric Trump lives with his wife in a $2 million home. A little trivia about his wife. She dated Leonardo DiCprio at the height of her fame.
5. Ivanka’s Legal Issues
Ivanka Trump does not only work for her father but she also launched a line of accessories that has been incredibly successful in the fashion world. But she experienced some legal issues with it too. She had to pull out a line of scarves out of the Chinese market because they were highly flammable, and she was sued for copyright infringement on her shoe line. Of course, as a Trump she was able to get her way out of the mess.
4. Hotel Business Legacy
Their father started his entrepreneur ventures in the real estate world. So it’s no surprise that Eric, Ivanka, and Don Jr. co-founded their own line of luxury hotels. They call it The Trump Hotel Company and have businesses all over the world. They really seem to be following closely in their father’s footsteps with their focus on the global real estate and hotel markets. Like father, like children.
3. Can’t Vote
Oops! Ivanka Trump completely “forgot” to register to vote in her home state of New York. So she won’t be casting a ballot for her father. That’s definitely a huge mistake for someone who has been such a public supporter of his campaign.
Eric Trump also forgot to register to vote! So, he won’t be casting a ballot for his father either. We can’t help but wonder if he and his sister really “forgot” to register to avoid voting for their controversial father.
2. Changing Color
Ivanka’s eye color seem to change from time to time. Have you noticed this? The fashionista (and former model) matches her hair color and outfits to differently colored contacts. It’s a subtle change, but once you’ve seen the different looks you’ll notice it every time you see her. Ivanka’s eyes are naturally a rich brown color, but she’s been wearing hazel, green, and blue contacts these days.
1. The Father-In-Law
If you’re not aware, Melania’s dad is a certified communist. Sources say that his party affiliation was a result of his desire for perks like good employment opportunities. Viktor Knavs still lives in Slovenia and is said to have a similar personality to that of the United States’ 45th president. So now we know why she married Donald. He has worked as a chauffeur and a used car salesman.
The Trump family has been and continue to be a controversial family. Especially now that Donald Trump became president. They continue to entertain, amuse and sometimes irritate us but whether or not they are the first family they will continue to live under the spotlight.
