Before he became President of the United States in January 2017, Donald Trump and his family had been in the spotlight for a long time. While he has been known all that time, most people did not think of him all that much. When they did, it was likely from recalling the latest episode of ‘The Apprentice’. Well, he has not changed all that much. He is still shouting “you are fired” left, right and center when it pleases him. With Trump front and center on the world stage, however, people have begun to realize that we do not actually know all that much about the Trump family. All we really know is that the man has been married three times and has five children.
In this article, we will be taking an in-depth look at the First Family and discovering some surprising things we just did not know about the Trump clan.
1. Donald Trump Jr.
39 years old Donald Jr. is trump’s eldest child and first son. His mother was Trump’s first wife, Ivana Zelnickova. Like his father, Donald Jr has five children of his own with his wife Vanessa Haydon, a formal model. Along with his younger brother, Eric, he acts as executive vice president and trustee in his father’s company, “The Trump Organization.” He has been walking his father’s path for quite some time and even attended the same university.
He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor of science degree in economics. However, what many people didn’t know is that following his graduation he moved to Aspen, Colorado and was estranged from his father for a year. In that time, he fished, skied, hunted and lived in a truck while working as a bartender. In 2012, Donald Jr. found himself in a bit of trouble, however, when photos from an African hunting trip in 2010 went viral, Although the hunt itself was legal, the photos of Donald Jr. showing off his trophies stirred up quite the controversy.
