3. He Loves To Hunt
Here is Donald with younger brother Eric, showing off one of their kills – a leopard they shot in Africa. Donald defended their actions, saying “I can assure you it was not wasteful. The villagers were so happy for the meat which they don’t often get to eat. Very grateful.”
4. A Job From Dad
Despite gaining a degree in business studies from the University of Pennsylvania, Donald has never actually had to lower himself to undertake the interview process like the rest of us – he got his ready-made career working for in real estate from Donald Sr.

24. He Broke Tradition
Eric (and 10 year old Barron of course!) is the only one of his siblings who didn’t attend the University of Pennsylvania, the same uni Trump graduated from.

22-year-old Tiffany is Trump’s only child with second wife Marla Maples. Guess it’s the first time you’ve heard about this gal!
30. She Wants to be….
…. well, she hasn’t really made up her mind yet. She’s probably taking more time to think things through. But who cares? She’s got a daddy who can probably take care of whatever she wants… Even throwing out cash!
31. Rich Kid of Instagram
She is known as one of the Rich Kids of Instagram – a group of girls and guys in their early twenties who record every moment of their extravagant parent-funded lifestyles online.
32. Meet Her Pals
Tiffany Trump always hangs out with other rich kids in town. The posh group ‘The Rich Kids of Instagram’ includes Kyra Kennedy (daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.), Reya Benitez (daughter of Studio 54 legend John ‘Jellybean’ Benitez), Gaia Matisse (great-great granddaughter of world famous painter, Henri Matisse) and of course, Tiffany Trump.
33. And She Loves Hanging Out With Them
And that’s what she does best. Guess daddy wouldn’t be so mad with that.
34. She Got Lucky With Vogue
She managed to score a much sought after internship at the magazine – could her big sister have put in a good word for her perhaps?! We definitely think so.
35. Viewpoint School
Donald Trump may not have been around as his daughter was growing up, but he made sure that she gets all the good things in life. That also means sending her to Calabasas’ $31,205-a-year Viewpoint School.
36. The Forgotten Sister
Despite his constant gushing about his other kids, Trump rarely mentions 22-year-old Tiffany – as a result, many people don’t even realize she exists.
37. Tiffany’s Boyfriend
Tiffany has been dating Ross Mechanic, the son son of a powerful New York real estate lawyer, since October 2015. They’re very close and he even accompanies her to her Dad’s rallies. Here they are enjoying one of their many trips away…
In May, Tiffany graduated from the University of Pennsylvania – the same place her dad studied at! Here she is with all of the fam who came to support her on her big day. Class of 2016! Let’s hope she puts her brain to good use!
39. Sibling Closeness
Tiff’s very close to her siblings and she takes her aunt duties very seriously. Here she is with Ivanka’s third child, Theodore James Kushner, who was born in March this year. Aww.
40. A Room With A View
No, we’re not joking. This exclusive panorama of the New York Skyline is actually Tiffany’s own. She lives in a prestigious upper Manhattan apartment with the most sought-after views around. Bet it’s super luxurious inside, too. What a lucky girl!!
41. She Was Raised By Her Mother
After her parents’ divorce, Tiffany grew up with her mother, who says that although Trump helped financially, she was a single mother. As a result, it has been reported that she had little contact with her father over the years, until recently when she has become more active in his political campaign.
42. Father’s Inappropriate Comment About Her
In an interview, Donald Trump gushed to say that his baby daughter is beautiful just like her mother and that she got her legs and… her boobs. Yes, that was precisely what he meant as he cupped his own ‘air boobs’.
43. Guess We’ll Get to Know More of Her
If Donald Trump successfully makes it as the next president of the United States of America, perhaps we’ll be hearing more about his kids, too. Guess Tiffany Trump will also make it to the scene.
44. The Eldest Three Siblings Work For The Trump Organization
Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka Trump are all executive vice presidents of the Trump Organization, but each child has his or her own speciality. We already know Ivanka and Donald Jr. are heavily involved in the real estate side of things…
45. Eric’s Role
We know about his foundations and winery work, but what about the golf ventures? In 2013, Eric joined the Trump Organization, focusing on the golf assets, and since, he’s expanded Trump’s golf courses from three to 17 worldwide! His father is apparently still hands on, calling him to discussing specifics regarding the golf courses!
46. His Fitness-Freak Wife
We forgot to mention that Eric is married! He made a Trump out of his wife Laura, associate producer of CBS’ Inside Edition, in 2014. She’s very into health and fitness, having previously worked as a personal trainer. She even broke both of her wrists horse-riding two weeks before their wedding! They’ve yet to have kids, but their dog Charlie is something of a surrogate in the meantime.
47. Against The Release Of His Dad’s Tax Returns
Trump got himself into hot water when he didn’t release his tax returns, and because other politicians had done, he looked especially shady. He explained he thought handing them in was pointless, saying that his dad’s returns are massive, and you would have a bunch of people who know nothing about taxes”, making “assumptions on things they know nothing about”.
