Hate on Donald Trump all you want, but his daughter Tiffany doesn't seem all that bad

Politics aside, it can't be easy to be the daughter of the president, especially when people ostracize you just because they disagree with your dad's political views.

But Tiffany Trump is taking it all in stride, and she actually seems like she's kind of cool — and she's definitely not all up in the family business. Regardless of who you voted for, it's hard to slam a gal who's smart, talented and best of all, absolutely loves her mama. Here's what you need to know about the youngest Trump daughter.

1. She's headed to the White House

OK, maybe not the White House technically, but it was just announced that Tiffany will attend Georgetown University's law school, which is located in Washington. Can't help but wonder if Tiffany got a little familial pressure to enroll.

2. Her boyfriend is a Democrat

Donald is a Republican president, but Tiffany's BF, Ross Mechanic, is — gasp — a registered Democrat, according to the International Business Times. That hasn't stopped Mechanic from showing up to political events like the Republican National Convention with Tiffany.

3. Marla Maples is her mother

Remember the scandal Marla Maples caused in the '90s when she had a long-running affair with the then-married Trump? Everyone saw Maples as the home wrecker who torpedoed Trump's 12-year marriage to wife Ivana Trump. Once the divorce dust settled, Maples and Trump married two months after Tiffany Trump was born. Fast forward 20 years, and baby Tiffany is all grown up. Say what you will about Maples — she's still beautiful at 50, and she somehow raised a Trump heir in near anonymity.

4. Tiffany and her mom are very close

Once the Maples/Trump empire collapsed, mother and daughter moved to California and forged a strong bond. Maples told Oprah Winfrey on Where Are They Now? that Donald Trump supported his daughter financially but that she considered herself a single parent when it came to the actual parenting. When Tiffany was a teen, she and her mother cooked, played tennis together and formed a close relationship. Tiffany told the Daily Mail, "We've always been very close since she did raise me as a single mom."

5. She's an Ivy Leaguer

Tiffany attended her father's alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, and graduated in 2016 with a double major in sociology and urban studies. Even with the divorce between them, both of her parents bit the bullet and showed up to give their support, along with siblings Ivanka and Barron.

6. Her net worth is under $1 million

While half a mill sounds like big bucks to most of us, you can already guess that this is small potatoes in the Trump family. Since Tiffany just graduated college and will soon begin building her career, it makes sense that her current net worth is estimated at $600,000. Compare this to her dad's net worth at $4.1 billion, and we can see where she's heading.
