It’s been over a month now since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, changing the lives of his children forever. Since then, Trump’s victor has had a ripple effect on his entire family, and the president-elect’s younger children have been thrust into the spotlight for the first time.
Tiffany Trump, the 21 year-old daughter of Trump’s second wife Marla Maples, has been kept hidden from the public for much of her life. After her parents divorced when she was young, she moved to California with her mother, and remained there through high school. Now, Tiffany is looking at becoming the next First Daughter, and when comparing her to Malia Obama, it’s clear that she will be the far better role model for young women across America.
Tiffany’s upbringing has given her a sense of humility that Malia will never have. While Malia grew up in privilege, traveling around the world with her freeloading parents on the dime of American taxpayers, Tiffany was kept sheltered from the elite world of her father. Instead of staying in New York City, where her dad is basically king, Tiffany grew up in Calabasas, California. There, she was treated like a regular kid being raised by a single mother.
When Tiffany was 17, she was living the normal life of any other American teenager. Malia, however, has already started mooching off her father for jobs and social boosts. Last summer, Malia scored her first major Hollywood internship at the age of 16. This year, Malia is working in Hollywood once again, but this time she’s interning on the set of the X-rated television series Girls.
Tiffany Trump managed to stay out of the California party scene in high school, choosing to focus on her studies instead. Malia, meanwhile, was spotted out partying when she was as young as 16. Last summer, she was caught on camera partying at Lollapalooza, a drug-fueled rager in Chicago. There, Malia was involved in a physical altercation with a fellow concert-goer.
Tiffany’s hard work in high school paid off, and she was accepted to the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania, where she is now a senior. Unlike other girls her age who post photos of themselves partying all night, Tiffany regularly posts photos online of herself spending the night studying in the library. This is a clear attempt to inspire other young people to hit the books instead of the bars.
In the end, it’s clear that Tiffany Trump will be a much more inspirational first daughter than Malia Obama. While Malia encourages young people to party and mooch off their parents, Tiffany inspires the youth of America to work hard and carve their own path in life.
Her father has taught her well.
