Donald Trump, the family man with 'a tremendous heart', says daughter-in-law


The expectant mother has revealed her joy at being part of the Trump family.

The daughter-in-law of Donald Trump has said he will “go down in history as one of the greatest presidents”.

Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s son Eric and is pregnant with the couple’s first child, said she leads a “pretty normal life” despite the addition of extra security around them following Mr Trump’s election success.

The 34-year-old said the family is now closer than ever.

She told Hello! magazine: “I think that, ultimately, my father-in-law will change the United States for the better, restore pride to our country and go down in history as one of the greatest presidents.

“He is a man who, first and foremost, loves his family.

“He is a wonderful storyteller and loves large family dinners. We have such great times together and laugh a lot.

“He is gracious with his time and has a tremendous heart. He is an incredibly loyal person and never forgets those who are loyal to him.”

Lara said she feels “very lucky to have a man like Donald Trump as my father-in-law”.

“Obviously, the past two years were not all easy for our family,” she said.

“We took a lot of hits and continue to, but overall this has made us closer and stronger.”

Former TV producer Lara and businessman Eric, 33, whose new addition will be Mr Trump’s ninth grandchild, married in 2014 after dating for six years.

Mr Trump’s presidential win last year has meant they are now accompanied by security at all times, but she said they are getting used to it.

Lara said: “Eric and I lead a pretty normal life.


“Our favourite place to be is our home outside of New York City. It’s quiet and relaxing, just the two of us and our dogs.

“The Secret Service is made up of absolutely wonderful people. We couldn’t ask for more patriotic, selfless people to be around us.”
