Trump graduated from University of Pennsylvania with a degree in economics. He announced he was running for president in June 2015, and quickly became a highly controversial candidate. His campaign focused on immigration bans and repealing President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Melania Trump is the third wife of Donald Trump, and mother to Barron. She is Slovene-American and became an American citizen in 2006. Melania is a former model, starting a career at the age of 16. Her career as a model was very successful, appearing on highly esteemed magazine covers such as Vogue. She speaks five languages: Slovenian, English, German, Serbian and French.

Donald Trump Jr. is the first son of Donald Trump and his first wife, Ivana. He is the oldest of the Trump children and is the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, which he will take over during his father’s presidency. Donald Jr. married model Vanessa Haydon in 2005, whom he has five children with. Just like his father and younger siblings, he graduated from University of Pennsylvania.

Tiffany is the daughter of Donald Trump and his second wife, Marla Maples. She is the least known of the Trump children; perhaps because her mother raised her in California until she graduated from high school. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016. Like her older siblings, she delivered an impressive speech at the Republican National Convention.
The youngest of the Trump children, Barron is the first and only child of Donald and Melania Trump. Like his mother, he knows English and Slovene.He will live in Manhattan with his mother while he attends school. At only 10 years old, sources have said that he already takes after his father.
Over the next four years, it will be interesting to see what role President Donald Trump’s children play in politics. Despite the criticism that Trump receives because of his stance on certain policies, it’s hard not to give him credit on raising some impressive children.
