Donald Trump Jr. is the eldest son of former U.S. President Donald Trump. As a trustee and executive vice president of The Trump Organization, Trump is responsible for managing the company along with his younger brother Eric. Even during his father’s tenure as President, the brothers continued to engage in business dealings and investments in foreign countries, and received payments from foreign governments for their properties in the United States, despite pledging not to do so. Additionally, Trump played the role of a boardroom judge on his father’s TV show, The Apprentice. He also authored two books, Triggered in 2019 and Liberal Privilege in 2020.
Trump Jr. has been in the headlines for years due to his involvement in his father’s business and political endeavors. However, in recent years, his personal life has also drawn attention, particularly his relationship with Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Fox News host-turned-political aide. The couple has been dating since 2018, and news of their engagement was made public in early 2022. Here’s what we know about Guilfoyle and her relationship with Trump Jr.

Kimberly Guilfoyle is a 52-year-old attorney, television personality, and political advisor. She was born in San Francisco and began her career as a prosecutor in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In the late 1990s, she transitioned into television news and became a host on Court TV and later worked at Fox News for over a decade.
Guilfoyle has been politically active for many years and has worked on several Republican campaigns.
