Trump Jr. is the first child of Ivana and Donald Trump. He has two younger siblings, Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. He also has two half-siblings, Tiffany Trump, from his father's marriage to Marla Maples, and Barron Trump, from his father's current marriage to Melania Trump. Through his father, Trump Jr. is a grandson of Fred Trump and great-grandson of Elizabeth Trump, who founded what became the Trump Organization. Trump Jr.'s parents divorced when he was 13 years old. His mother told him that his father was having an extramarital affair. Trump Jr. was estranged from his father for one year after the divorce, furious at his actions which broke up the family.
In 2000, after graduating from Penn, Trump Jr. moved to Aspen, Colorado, where he hunted, fished, skied, lived in a truck, and worked as a bartender for a year, before returning to join the Trump Organization in New York. Trump Jr. has supervised building projects, which included 40 Wall Street, Trump International Hotel and Tower, and Trump Park Avenue. In 2006, he helped launch Trump Mortgage; the company collapsed in less than a year. In 2010, he became a spokesperson for Cambridge Who's Who, a public relations firm that had received hundreds of complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau. In 2015, he appeared as a guest adviser and judge on many episodes of his father's reality television show The Apprentice, from season 5 in 2006 to his father's last season. On January 11, 2017, Trump Jr.'s father announced that he and his brother Eric Trump would oversee a trust that included The Trump Organizations’s assets while his father was president, in order to avert a conflict of interest.
Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Trump Jr. was a key member of his father's campaign. He spoke at the Republican National Convention, along with his siblings Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, and Tiffany Trump. Trump Jr. influenced his father's choice of Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke during the presidential transition. Since his father's victory, Trump Jr. has developed what The Washington Post calls a "public persona as a right-wing provocateur and ardent defender of Trumpism". During the 2018 midterms election cycle, Trump Jr. actively campaigned on behalf of Republican candidates, including for Matt Rosendale, Patrick Morrisey, Mike Braun, Ron DeSantis, Lee Zeldin and Matt Gaetz. He raised millions of dollars for republican candidates, was second only to his father in his ability to draw crowds to draw campaign events, and is credited with helping Republican candidates win.
