In case you didn’t know, Donald Trump had three wives, and together they have 5 children. The first was Ivana Marie Trump (with three children: Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric), followed by Marla Maples (Tiffany), and the current first lady, Melania Trump (Barron).
Ivanka Trump is the daughter to him and his first wife, Ivana Marie Trump. She is president’s eldest daughter, and reportedly also his favourite child.
The real name of Ivanka Trump is actually Ivana Marie Trump, same as her mother. Ivanka just means the child of Ivana in Scandavian. It’s like what Bobby is to Robert.
As of 2020, the estimated net worth of Ivanka Trump is $50 Million.
Ivanka Trump early life and education
Ivanka was born on October 30th, 1981 in New York City. Being born in one of America’s wealthiest families, she has had the luxuries and privileges only a few others could have.
Ivanka wanted to model at the age of 14 when she was still at school. Her parents allowed her to model only if it didn’t get in the way of her education. So, she had to get permission from her school. To convince the school, she had to point out, and I quote: “they’d granted similar leave to a student who was training to be an Olympic skier, so I used precedent to my advantage and got what I wanted”.
When Ivanka was in her early 20s, she joined her father in the show “The Apprentice” as a guest boardroom advisor. This captured the attention of various producers and she started receiving numerous offers for TV shows. One of them was for the primary role in “The Bachelorette”. She said that she was flattered but declined the offer.
She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania in 2004. His father Donald went to the same school.
As of 2020, Ivanka Trump’s estimated net worth is $50 Million.
Ivanka Trump career as a Businesswoman
Trump joined the family business in 2005 as the Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions of The Trump Organization. Prior to that, she had worked as a real-estate Project Manager at Forest City Enterprises.
In 2007, Ivanka formed a partnership with Dynamic Diamond Corp. to launch her own line of jewelry products. The company was called Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry (now defunct) and their first (and flagship) store was in Manhattan.
She later expanded the business to include her own line of fashion accessories, clothes, shoes, etc. But, in 2018 she announced that she would be shutting down her fashion business to focus solely on public policy. She also said that she’d pursue a career in that field instead of returning to her fashion business.
Ivanka Trump and her role in the White House as one of the Senior Advisors to President Donald Trump
After Donald Trump won the presidency in 2017, Melania Trump, the stepmother of Ivanka took the role of first lady. While Ivanka herself became one of the senior advisors to the President.
Although both of these ladies are involved with giving their opinions and advice to the president, they both have this complaint where Donald would listen to their advice, but do the opposite. While things aren’t so good between Ivanka and Melania, the former still plays cool with Tiffany Trump, her half sibling from the President’s second wife. Having been in the spotlight for a long time, she helps her sibling to look better in the public by giving her sound advice.
Ivanka’s husband Jared, recently became the Director of The Office of American Innovation, an office within the White House created by the Trump administration. They’re both supportive of her father President Donald Trump. Ivanka has been supportive of working women and has helped empower them. She advocated for the policies that The Trump administration has implemented to better the lives of working women.
Ivanka Trump love life and Husband
Ivanka met her future husband Jared Kushner at a business meeting, arranged by their mutual friends to discuss potential business collaborations. They started dating soon, but Ivanka found it weird that Jared took her to a speakeasy located behind a Japanese restaurant for their first date.
She had dated several famous men in the past. But, never brought anyone to meet her father, except Jared. So, he must have done something right.
They both got married in 2009. The couple is now blessed with a daughter Arabella, and two sons, Joseph and Theodore.
Ivanka Trump Net Worth
Ivanka is surrounded by billion dollar Real-estate companies, and their owners. Her father Donald is the owner of The Trump Organisation, and her husband is the owner of Kushner Companies. But, after winning the presidency in 2017, Donald Trump announced that he and his daughter Ivanka would fully resign from the company and his sons Donald Jr., and Eric Trump would take the executive roles.
Coming to the net worth part. Despite the resignation, most of The Trump Organisation’s assets are owned by Donald Trump, who has an estimated net worth of over $2 Billion. While his children get paid nicely for their work at The Trump Organisation and own several assets of their own, their net worth is nowhere close to the amount that Donald owns.
Like her siblings, Ivanka also used her salary to start businesses of her own with varying amounts of success. As of 2020, the estimated net worth of Ivanka Trump is $50 Million.
