Donald Trump is often lauded by his children for being an exemplary father and grandfather, despite facing criticism from various quarters, including his own ex-wife, Ivana Trump. In her memoir “Raising Trump,” Ivana claimed she was the primary caregiver for their children, asserting that the credit for their upbringing belongs to her, as reported by ABC News.

This statement stands in contrast to the praises Donald Trump receives from his children regarding his parenting and grandparenting skills. Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump have collectively given Donald ten grandchildren, all of whom, according to the family, share a special bond with him.

In particular, Ivanka has publicly shared heartwarming details about Donald’s interaction with her children, describing him as an incredible grandfather. She recounted to Yahoo in 2016 how her children enjoy spending time with Donald, especially during summer weekends in New Jersey at one of their golf clubs, where they have fun riding golf carts and engaging in various activities with him.

Despite the warm family anecdotes, there has been scrutiny over the Trump family’s internal dynamics, especially during the turbulent final days of Donald Trump’s presidency. A source conveyed to Us Weekly in November 2022 that Ivanka had reevaluated her support for her father following his contentious claims about election fraud, which marked a difficult period for the family.

Amidst these complexities, instances shared on social media highlight the close relationship between Donald Trump and his grandchildren. Donald Trump Jr. captured a tender moment on Instagram in November 2016, showcasing Donald giving a loving kiss to his granddaughter Kai, a memory cherished by the family. Similarly, Lara Trump, Eric Trump’s wife, shared a video on X in November 2023 of Donald visiting their daughter Carolina at school, a gesture that depicted his involvement and affection as a grandfather.

However, the public’s reaction to these familial moments has been mixed, with some social media users offering cynical comments about Donald’s appearance and the privileges enjoyed by his family. Despite such criticisms, Lara Trump shared another video in March 2024, emphasizing the joy and excitement of a surprise visit from Donald to his granddaughter Carolina at Mar-a-Lago, reinforcing the family’s narrative of a strong and affectionate bond between Donald Trump and his grandchildren.
