Of all the Trump children, Tiffany Trump may be the most elusive. The fourth Trump child, and youngest daughter in the family, has maintained a rather low profile since her father, Donald Trump, took office. Especially compared to older siblings Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty you should know about Tiffany Trump.
Tiffany Trump’s parents
Tiffany is Donald Trump’s fourth child and his only child from his six-year marriage to actress Marla Maples. The couple reportedly named their daughter after the jewelry company, Tiffany & Co. Following her parents’ divorce, Tiffany and her mother moved to California, where she was raised primarily by her mother. According to reports, Maples and her daughter are incredibly close.
“Her daddy is a good provider with education and such, but as far as time, it was just me,” Maples told People in 2018. “Her father wasn’t able to be there with day-to-day skills as a parent. He loves his kids. There’s no doubt. But everything was a bit of a negotiation.” Maples added that she nevertheless encouraged Tiffany to have a relationship with her father.
Though Tiffany’s relationship with her father was reportedly strained as a child, it’s apparently become even more fractured since he took office.
“I still see him on spring breaks, or for Easter, I’m always at Mar-a-Lago with the family,” Tiffany told People in 2016. However, a source later shared with the magazine, “Since the inauguration, Tiffany and her father have sometimes gone for months without speaking, and she went a very long time without seeing him.… The last time she was at a family function with him, it was awkward for her, and she didn’t feel totally welcome.”
Her relationship with her Trump siblings
Tiffany has four half-siblings: Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, and Barron Trump. Though her relationship to her siblings appears to be on solid ground now, it wasn’t always this way. In a 2005 interview with radio host Howard Stern, Stern asked Trump, “Do your older children get nervous every time you have another child?”
“I have a friend who is also like a very rich guy,” Trump replied. “And he said how his children hate the new children coming along and everything else; I said, ‘Yeah, because every time you have a child, it’s 20% less.’”
Later, Stern followed up by asking specifically if Donald Jr. and Ivanka were trying to “bump off a child.”
Trump responded, “Tiffany?”
Stern said, “Is there any truth to that? Tell me the truth, though.” Trump simply responded, “Yes.”
However, in 2016, Ivanka painted a very different picture of her relationship with her sister. Growing up, Ivanka said, “We would see each other on all of the holidays and talk to each other frequently…she’s my little sister! I’ve been close to Tiffany her whole life, and I really love her.”
She still follows plenty of family traditions.
Despite not going up in the same house as her father and older siblings, Tiffany still followed in their college footsteps. Tiffany attended and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, just like her dad, brother Don Jr., and sister Ivanka. While in school, she was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. Tiffany also studied at the School of Arts and happened to graduate alongside Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden.
In May 2020, Tiffany hit another academic milestone when she graduated from Georgetown Law. She has yet to comment on when or where she plans to take the bar exam.
Tiffany’s musical past
Tiffany Trump may have been an excellent student, but academics wasn’t her only passion growing up. At the age of 17, Tiffany released her first and only single called “Like a Bird.”
“I love music. It’s always been a big passion for me," Tiffany told Oprah in 2011. “It’s more of a hobby right now, but we’ll see in a couple of years if I actually do want to take it to the next level—to a professional level. But right now, my priority is focusing on school and getting into a good college.”
She was a Vogue intern.
According to a New York Times profile on Tiffany, she has interned at Vogue—thanks to a little recommendation from big sister Ivanka.
But in Michael Cohen’s book Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, Cohen casts the internship in a slightly different light, alleging that Tiffany’s father and older sister didn’t believe she had the right “look” to be a Vogue intern.
“I don’t think Tiffany has the look,” Cohen says Donald Trump told Ivanka. “She just doesn’t have what you have, honey.”
“She just doesn’t have the look is the right way to say it, Daddy,” Ivanka replied, according to Cohen.
Her political views
Unlike her older siblings, Tiffany has had relatively little to do with her father’s political career, at least publicly. Tiffany did make an appearance at both the 2016 and 2020 Republican National Conventions in support of her father. She also was filmed with her three older siblings for 60 Minutes in 2016. Of her dad as president, she said, “I mean, I don’t think we can really prepare for our father becoming president. But we were all there together with everyone that’s worked so hard. And my dad has worked so hard. And it’s just–it’s really awe-inspiring.”
What she’s up to professionally
Like many recent law school grads, it appears Tiffany is still on the hunt for a job. At the 2020 RNC, she said, “Like so many students across the world, I graduated from law school during the pandemic. Our generation is unified in facing the future in uncertain times. And many of us are considering what kind of country we want to live in. As a recent graduate, I can relate to so many of you who might be looking for a job.”
A clue to where she might be headed: She told George Stephanopoulos in a 2016 interview that she’s “of course” interested in joining the family business. She added, “I’m applying to law school, though, so I like to bring—a different kind [of] skill set to the company.”
Her father may be happy to have her in the fold; he tweeted at her graduation, “Just what I need is a lawyer in the family.” (He really does seem to need a new lawyer.)
Her relationship status
Tiffany has been dating her current boyfriend, Michael Boulos, since 2018. According to Town & Country, the couple has “been getting to know each other for the past few years,” and according to a source, “they’re really enjoying their time together.”
Tiffany hasn’t shared much about her private life but did share a sweet message to Boulos for his birthday on Instagram.
“Happy Birthday, @michaelboulos,” she wrote. “You fill my life with so much joy, kindness, and laughter! Thank you for always putting a smile on my face!”
