Donald Trump has five children. Four of his five children are with his ex-wives and he has one son with his current wife, Melania.
Trump had his three oldest children Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric with ex-wife Ivana Trump. After his bitter divorce from Ivana, he then married Marla Maples and they had one daughter, Tiffany. After divorcing Maples, Trump then married Melania Knauss and they have one son, 13-year-old Barron.
Tiffany Trump has somehow been labeled the B-list child of the Trump family. The fact that she does not remain in the spotlight like her siblings has earned her the nickname “the forgotten Trump.”
During an interview, Marla Maples did with The New York Times and she shared that Tiffany was upset about the rude nickname. She also shared that Tiffany still had hopes that she could have a better relationship with her dad as her older siblings have.
Maples raised Tiffany on her own. Reportedly, Tiffany did not see her father very often.
While appearing on CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Trump stated that he believes he is a good father to all of his kids. However, Ivana, Marla, and even Melania have stated at one point or another that Trump was an absentee parent. He never changed a diaper nor spent any real quality times with his children on a consistent basis.
“Tiffany is a tremendous young woman with a big and beautiful heart. She was always a great student and a very popular person no matter where she went. I am incredibly proud of Tiffany and how well she has done,” Trump once stated in an email to the press.
It isn’t really clear if Tiffany is close to any of her siblings. They are pictured together on occasion at political events. Ivanka has praised Tiffany at one point stating that Tiffany was ‘confident and driven.”
“A lot of people are happy to get by without doing a lot of work, or work hard and pretend they don’t. She is proud of her work,” Ivanka stated.
Tiffany had previously told the media that she did not know what it was like to have a normal father-daughter relationship because she did not grow up with her father in her life.
