After the eccentric election and remorseful adieus to the Obamas, the White House is now the residence of the much-talked-about President-elect who was finally sworn in as the 45th #POTUS at the public ceremony held on Jan 20, 2017. With exaggerated fanfare over the First Dance at the Freedom Ball where the First Couple – Donald and Melania Trump – danced together to the happenings at the Washington DC Capitol and thereafter at Lincoln Memorial, America now has a new First Family full of TV stars, businessmen and socialites. Let’s know the Trumps, albeit the wealthiest first family in the history of America.
We’ve known Donald Trump ever since we’ve heard about the Presidential campaigns in 2015 till his victory in the November of 2016. How about, we start with the ladies…
Apart from being a successful reality TV star, she has been a model for TV advertisements and the runway since the age of 5. She was part of Donald Trump’s Trump Model Management firm before she married him in 2005. Here’s them dancing at the freedom ball –
