Tiffany Trump Biography

(1993–)
Tiffany Trump is the daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump and actress Marla Maples.

Who Is Tiffany Trump?

Tiffany Ariana Trump was born on October 13, 1993, at St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida to actress Marla Maples and then-real estate mogul Donald Trump. Tiffany is their only child.

Raised primarily by her mother in California, Tiffany would visit her father several times a year in New York and spend some summer vacations at his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, but overall maintained a low profile for a Trump. In 2012, she followed in the footsteps of her famous father and older half siblings, Donald Jr. and Ivanka, by attending the University of Pennsylvania, where she double-majored in sociology (with a concentration in law) and urban studies, and was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.

After graduating in May 2016, she joined her family on the campaign trail.

Fashion Forward on Instagram

Tiffany is likely best known for her popular Instagram posts — as of November 2017, she has accumulated more than 900K followers. Her photographs frequently show her with friends who are also known mostly for having famous parents or grandparents. Dubbed the "Rich Kids of Instagram" the group’s posed photos are edited by their friend Andrew Warren (the grandson of fashion tycoon David Warren). As founder of the Just Drew clothing line, Warren enlisted Tiffany to walk the runway for his brand’s fall show in 2016. Tiffany’s interest in fashion is nothing new. In 2011 with a little help from her big sister Ivanka, she landed a summer internship working at Vogue before starting her classes at Penn.

Law School

In August 2016, Tiffany posted a photo on Instagram with LSAT prep books in tow, indicating her intention to apply to law school. She took the exam on December 3, 2016 at the City University of New York in Long Island City and was later seen visiting Columbia, Harvard and New York University. She settled on Georgetown, where her older brother, Eric earned his bachelor's degree in 2006.

Tiffany has refrained from saying why she has chosen to attend law school and the White House has declined to comment on Tiffany’s interest in a legal career. However, she wouldn’t be the first Trump to study law: Her aunt, Maryanne Trump Barry (her father's older sister), serves as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

2016 U.S. Presidential Campaign

After graduating from college in May 2016, Tiffany joined the other members of the Trump family at campaign appearances. She briefly stepped into the spotlight to give a speech about her father on the second night of the 2016 Republican National Convention. Noting up front that she was nervous, she said: “Like my father, I never back down from challenges, so here I am, a little new to the convention scene, but very honored and confident in the man America is coming to know."

Early Years

Tiffany was name after the world famous jewelry retailer Tiffany & Company, which has its flagship store next to Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. Donald and Marla announced Tiffany’s arrival at a news conference in the lobby of the Palace Theatre where Maples had performed in The Will Rogers Follies in 1992. In December 1993, two months after Tiffany was born, the couple got married at New York City's Plaza Hotel. The marriage ended in divorce in 1999.

Maples then moved to Calabasas, California (near Los Angeles), saying that she raised Tiffany as “a single mother.” Tiffany attended the more than $30,000-a-year Viewpoint School and the mother and daughter counted the now-famous Kardashian clan as part of their circle of friends. Unlike her mother, Tiffany did not catch the acting bug, but she dabbled in music briefly as a teen, releasing a single, “Like a Bird,” with singers Sprite and Logic in 2011. During a Where Are They Now? segment on the Oprah show, Tiffany said, "I love music, but right now my priority is just focusing on school and getting into a good college."

Personal Life

Tiffany has a close relationship with her mom. In 2015 she began dating Ross Mechanic, who is also an alumni of the University of Pennsylvania. Although there's been talk about Mechanic's politics (he's registered as a Democrat and has publicly supported Hillary Clinton), he's worked as an intern at Jared Kushner's real estate start-up, Cadre, in Manhattan.

The couple called it quits in the fall of 2017.
