Children with Ivana

Don, Ivanka and Eric are Trump's three eldest children, from his first marriage with Ivana Trump.

Prior to the election, each of the siblings held the title of Executive Vice President at The Trump Organization. During the campaign, they served as surrogates for their father on national news programs. Following Trump’s election victory, all three were named to the presidential transition team. [4]

Following the inauguration, Donald Jr. and Eric took charge of the family's real estate empire. Ivanka moved to Washington, D.C. with her husband Jared Kushner, who was appointed to a senior White House advisory position. [5]

Tiffany Trump

Tiffany Ariana Trump (born October 13, 1993) is the only child of Donald Trump and Marla Maples. In 2016, Tiffany participated little in her father's campaign, in part because she was attending the University of Pennsylvania, her father's alma mater. [6] Shortly after graduating in sociology and urban studies, she made a speech for her father at the Republican National Convention at age 22. [7]

Barron Trump

[12] Barron did not immediately move into the White House when his father became president, but remained at Trump Tower with his mother until the end of the 2016–2017 school year. [13] Melania and Barron moved to the White House on June 11, 2017, and he now attends St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland. [14]

He made rare appearances during the 2016 election, owing to his mother's desire to keep him out of the spotlight.

[16] While absent from pre-inauguration events, he was at his father's inauguration ceremony in January 2017 and some of the following events. [17]
