Tiffany Trump Won’t Playing Role In Dad Donald Trump’s Re-Election Campaign, Spurring Estrangement Rumors
According to People, Tiffany is “not expected to play any role in the campaign, apart from appearing at the occasional event.”
“Members of the Trump family are valued advisors and integral parts of the campaign,” a rep for Trump’s 2020 campaign said. “Their input and involvement were key to victory in 2016 and will be so again in 2020.”
Tiffany is the only child from Trump’s marriage with Marla Maples, which lasted from 1993 to 1999.
She has rarely involved herself in the family’s involvement in politics since the first campaign in 2016, despite her half-siblings Donald Jr. Trump, Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump being major parts in Trump’s campaign and administration.
Tiffany, who went to Georgetown Law School, told the news outlet that during her father’s campaign in 2016 she was raised solely by Maples in California. She occasionally visited him on her spring break vacations at Mar-a-Lago.
A source close to Tiffany said, “since the inauguration, Tiffany and her father have sometimes gone for months without speaking and she went a very long time without seeing him,” they said. “The last time she was at a family function with him, it was awkward for her and she didn’t feel totally welcome. They always had a strained relationship her whole life, and it got exacerbated by the presidency. It’s gotten much worse now.”
Her half-siblings will continue to play an important role for their father. Donald Jr. and his girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle are expected to headline upcoming fundraisers for the 2020 campaign in California.
Eric’s wife, Lara Trump, is set to unveil a new campaign coalition on Tuesday, Women for Trump, in Pennsylvania. Eric will focus largely on the campaign finances as a campaign surrogate.
Ivanka’s husband, Jared Kushner, will be “involved in high-level political and digital strategy as well as coordination between the campaign and the Republican National Committee,” as reported by Politico.
Ivanka will remain as a senior advisor in the White House.
