Donald Trump loves a good photo opportunity, and with being in the limelight as long as he has, well, there have been plenty of moments caught on camera — and many of them very damming. And over the last few months leading up to the Presidential election, more private moments have been released following the publication of explicit tell-all books written by those who were once close to him and his family.
Members of the Trump family all have different relationships with one another, sometimes they are on good terms, and sometimes they get into big fights. Also, Donald’s kids all have their own relationship with their father. “We’ve all made peace with the fact that we will never be able to achieve any level of autonomy,” daughter Ivanka said. “No matter how different a career path we choose from our parents, people will always say we wouldn’t have gotten there if it hadn’t been for our name.”
As a dad, Donald has said that having children has been tough. “Much tougher than people think,” he said. “You’ve probably figured out my children really like me, love me, a lot. It’s hard when somebody walks into the living room of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and this is supposed to be, like, a normal life. But they’re very grounded and very solid. The hardest thing for me about raising kids has been finding the time. I know friends who leave their business so they can spend more time with their children, and I say, ‘Gimme a break!’ My children could not love me more if I spent fifteen times more time with them.”
Despite Trump’s busy schedule, he’s spent quite of bit of time with his family, as documented in these family photos.
