Who is Tiffany Trump? Donald’s 21-year-old daughter steps into the spotlight

Who is Tiffany Trump?

Donald Trump has five children: One with current wife Melania Knauss; three with first wife Ivana Zelnickova; and one with his second wife, 90s thespian and noted ski enthusiast Marla Maples. It’s he and Marla’s daughter who’s attracting a lot of extra attention these days–because 21-year-old Tiffany Trump is getting ready to take her own turn in the Trump spotlight.

She’s being called the “wild-card daughter” of her father’s presidential campaign, but that might be simply because Tiffany Trump’s upbringing has been so different from the rest of her siblings’. Whereas the rough-and-tumble Trump family name earned its reputation in New York City, Tiffany was raised out on the West Coast, Calabasas-style. Mother Marla says that, while she did earn alimony from Donald to help with the cost of raising her daughter, she did the bulk of the work herself, as a single parent struggling to do right by her child.

One thing we know for sure: neither Maples nor Trump mind spending on education where their child are concerned. Tiffany spent her Calabasan years at the Viewpoint School, which boasts a hefty $31,205 annual price tag. (Contrary to popular belief, Viewpoint is not the same school that Kendall and Kylie Jenner attended, though the Jenners also hail from Calabasas.)

For a brief period, it looked like Tiffany was interested in a music career. “I love music,” Trump told Oprah, on an episode of Winfrey’s show from several years back. “It’s always been very dear to me. It’s a big passion. It’s more of a hobby right now, but we’ll see in a couple of years if I want to take it to the next level as a professional.”

At 17, Tiffany went so far as to record a single. Entitled “Like A Bird,” the song was intended for dance floors the world over, but, unfortunately, fluttered away without garnering too much attention. The full song doesn’t seem to be available anywhere–not even on YouTube, that vaunted vault of forgotten gems. If you’re so inclined, however, there’s a 30-second preview of “Like A Bird” on Amazon–and, if you’re enthralled, you can purchase the tune for the bargain basement price of ninety-nine cents.

One of Tiffany’s other interests is fashion. Her older sibling Ivanka helped the then-teenager land an interning gig at Vogue, which Tiff parlayed into some of her most amusing Instagram updates. And, as you can tell from the photos throughout this post, Tiffany Trump is nothing if not an active wearer of clothes.

She’s been learning the business side of fashion, though, while a student in the prestigious undergraduate program at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. (Tiffany’s chances at getting into UPenn probably weren’t harmed by the fact that her father is an alum.) The Ivy League university’s business program is tops in the country, and rumors already abound that Tiffany is being groomed to take over the Trump empire once Donald is ready to step down.

The Ivy League-educated Tiffany has so far spent this summer chronicling her adventures with the self-proclaimed “Rich Kids of Instagram.” They include some of the most notable (and youngest) rising stars of business and high society: in addition to Trump, the group boasts Harry Brant and Peter Brant, Jr., the sons of mogul Peter Brant; EJ Johnson, son of NBA legend and renowned businessman Magic Johnson; Gaia Matisse, great-great granddaughter of the world-renowned artist; and Andrew Warren, son of a prominent New York-area real estate investor.

As far as her father’s presidential aspirations go, Tiffany has shied away from any commentary. Her only nod toward the campaign came last month, on the day her father announced his candidacy via a now-infamous speech:


It remains to be seen whether Tiffany Trump will keep out of the public eye–but, regardless of how her father’s candidacy ends, it’s clear that the youngest Trump daughter has a future ahead of her.
