The Secrets Behind Donald Trump’s Close Relationship With His Daughter-in-Law, Lara

Donald Trump shares a special relationship with his daughter-in-law, Lara. She unexpectedly became an important and supportive ally during his 2016 election campaign, and doesn’t plan on stopping her efforts anytime soon.

Here’s how she fits into the Trump family, and why the president values her not only as a business partner, but as a part of his son’s life.

The two met randomly in New York in 2008 and married in November 2014 in Mar-a-Lago. Since then, they have adopted two rescue dogs — Charlie and Ben, both beagles — and have yet to convince Donald and his vice president to follow suit.

Kellyanne Conway said Lara was an asset on the campaign trail, doing whatever she could to aid fundraising and encourage people to vote. She apparently grabbed the attention of many female and southern voters. Donald Trump put her “in charge” of making sure they won North Carolina, her home state.

In a move to become more involved in her father-in-law’s administration — despite the questionable ethics involved — Lara Trump started working inside the White House in late 2017. As the senior adviser on his re-election campaign, she has worked her way into more official meetings and roundtable discussions.

In the past, she has openly discussed how fortunate she feels to be a member of the Trump family. “I’m a girl from North Carolina who really has no business even being involved with this family,” she said. “But I just so happened to fall in love with a guy … and it worked.”

Next: She genuinely believes he’s a good person.
