Donald Trump has led the White House for almost four years, and this November he will battle Joe Biden to lead the country for the next four years.
As the 2020 election draws ever closer, there’s no-one who wants to see Mr Trump re-elected more than the members of his large, if often controversial, family, many of whom often stand alongside the president on his campaign trail and even hold positions in his administration.
But just exactly how many members of the first family of the United States are there? And more importantly, who are they?
Donald Trump Jr, 42, son of Ivana Trump
Donald Trump Jr, the eldest son of the president, is an ardent political advocate of his father and supporter of his presidential campaign. Alongside his political endeavours, Mr Trump’s oldest son currently serves as a trustee and executive vice president of the Trump Organisation, running the company alongside his younger brother Eric Trump.
The American businessman is widely known as a sportsman and big-game hunter, for which he has often drawn controversy from animal rights groups. He divorced from his first wife Vanessa Trump in 2018, with whom he has five children. He is currently dating Kimberly Ann Guilfoyle, an American attorney, prosecutor, and television news personality who is currently working as a top fundraiser for the Trump campaign after first joining the campaign as a senior advisor last year.
Ivanka Trump, 38, daughter of Ivana Trump
Ivanka Trump is the second-oldest of Mr Trump’s children and his first daughter. She has served as Senior Advisor to the President since 2017 and similarly to her older brother, has played a central role in assisting her father’s political career. Ms Trump, a former runway model, also previously had a hand in the family business having worked as an executive vice president of the Trump organisation.
The president’s oldest daughter is married to Jared Kushner, an American investor, real-estate developer, and newspaper publisher who is currently working alongside his wife as senior advisor to the president. Ms Trump converted to Orthodox Judaism before her 2009 wedding and the couple has three children together.
Eric Trump, 36, son of Ivana Trump
The youngest son of the president’s first marriage to Ivana Trump, Eric Trump, holds the same title as his older brother as trustee and executive vice president of the Trump Organisation. The president’s second son was one of the central advisors, fundraisers, and campaign surrogates during the 2016 presidential campaign. Like his older siblings, he is set to speak at the Republican National Convention (RNC) this year.
Instead of attending the University of Pennsylvania like his father, brother, and sister before him, he attended Georgetown in Washington DC. Mr Trump’s second son also owns and operates Trump Winery, Virginia’s largest vineyard. He married Lara Yunaska, a former personal trainer and TV producer in 2014 and the couple have two children together.
Tiffany Trump, 26, daughter of Marla Maples
Tiffany Trump, Mr Trump’s only daughter from his second marriage to Marla Maples, was raised by her mother outside of Los Angeles. Mr Trump’s second daughter graduated from law school at Georgetown University in May in a virtual ceremony. She previously graduated from the University of Pennsylvania like her father.
She has been dating boyfriend Michael Boulos, who studies finance at City University of London, since 2018, according to reports. Ms Trump does not occupy the same central role in her father’s company or political campaign as her three half-siblings but, similarly to them, is scheduled to speak at the RNC this year. She has a large Instagram following and posts regularly to her over 1.2 million fans.
Barron Trump, 14, son of Melania Trump
Barron Trump is the president’s youngest son and his only child to his current wife, and first lady of the united states, Melania Trump. The Trump’s have worked to keep their youngest son out of the media spotlight in his younger years and he is usually only photographed alongside his parents while travelling or on family occasions.
The president’s youngest son has attended St Andrew’s Episcopal School since 2017, which recently made headlines after it announced it will not re-open this year for in-person learning amidst the coronavirus pandemic, despite the president’s demands for all schools to re-open this fall. She has previously shared that her son is a big fan of sports.
Donald Trump’s Grandchildren
In total, Mr Trump has 10 grandchildren from his five children.
Donald Trump Jr and his former wife Vanessa Trump have five children: Kai Madison Trump, 13, Donald John III Trump, 11, Tristan Milos Trump, eight, Spencer Frederick Trump, seven, and Chloe Sophia Trump, six.
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have three children: Arabella Rose Kushner, nine, Joseph Frederick Kushner, six, and Theodore James Kushner, four. Ms Trump often shares updates of her children on her Instagram to her six and a half million followers.
Eric Trump and his wife Lara Trump have two children together: Eric “Luke” Trump, who is two-years-old, and Carolina Dorothy Trump, the youngest Trump family member at one-year-old.
