President Donald Trump’s children played important roles in his campaign and the one who helped him the most is Donald Trump Jr.
Donald Trump Jr. is the eldest son of the newly-elected president with first wife Ivana. He is 38 years old and is currently the Executive Vice President of The Trump Organization. He is in-charge of the development and acquisitions of their real estate, hotels, and many others.
Donald Trump Jr.’s Career Background
According to The Sun, he has led successful projects in Chicago, India, Las Vegas and Scotland. He has also appeared alongside his father on the hit reality show The Apprentice.
Before he became the EVP of his father’s empire, he first worked as a dock attendant in the Trump Castle when he was 13 years old. He earns a minimum wage salary.
After completing his degree in Economics in Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania back in 2001, he returns to the family business. He then proves himself that he is indeed the son of the real estate tycoon when he leads the development of Trump Place in New York.
Though it is not clear what Donald Jr.’s net worth is. But Bloomberg has estimated the president’s net worth to be £3billion. So it is fair to say that the son is receiving a generous amount as the corporation’s EVP.
Donald Trump Jr.’s Personal Life
In 2003, The US President introduced his eldest son to model and actress Vanessa Haydon in a fashion show event. Two years after, he married Vanessa at their family-owned Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach Florida.
The couple, after 11 years of marriage, is now proud parents of two daughters and three sons. They recently celebrated their eleventh wedding anniversary enjoying a night of UFC fighting at Madison Square Garden.
Donald Trump Jr.’s Role in His Father’s Campaign
The eldest son, along with siblings Ivanka and Eric, has actively campaigned for their father’s bid for presidency. He visits one state to another to talk to Americans and convincing them to vote for Donald Sr.
His biggest campaign contribution is his speech during the Republican national convention last August. He becomes controversial when he posts on Twitter a graphic describing the refugee problem by using Skittles.
The post has been taken down by Twitter but BBC was able to post a screenshot of the tweet. The graphic posted used the words “If I had a bowl of Skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That’s our Syria refugee problem.”
Skittles did not find humor in the tweet and has responded:
