Eric Trump, born on January 6, 1984, is a businessman who is extremely good at what he does. He owns the Trump Foundation, which helps kids with cancer. He manages his father’s business, as well as being the current vice president of the Trump Organization. In 2016 and 2020, he helped his father, Donald Trump, run several campaigns in various states across the U.S. He has been able to stand out on his own despite having a famous father and we celebrate him for that on this his special day.

January 6, 1984
Eric Trump is a business mogul and the son of former U.S. President, Donald Trump. He was born on January 6, 1984, in New York. He would spend the summer holidays in the Czech countryside, where he was also taught how to fish and hunt by his grandfather, Miloš Zelníček. For his preschool, Trump went to Trinity and then to Hill High in 2002. He did not follow in his father, brother, and sister’s footsteps by going to the University of Pennsylvania but he instead opted to go to Georgetown University in Washington D.C. As a young child, Trump grew interested in his father’s business and would follow him to job sites. He joined his father’s company as a high school student and is today the Executive Vice President of “The Trump Organization”, and has led multimillion-dollar projects in his father’s name.
Ever since his appearances in his father’s TV show, “The Apprentice,” Trump has always been in the public eye. In 2013, he won the “Wine Enthusiast Magazine” Award for ‘Rising Star of the Year.’ In 2007, he started his charitable organization, “The Trump Foundation,” for children at St. Jude Children’s Hospital. He has donated over $30 million to the children’s hospital. He became more popular globally when his father ran for and won the 2016 presidential elections. He handled his father’s political campaigns by fundraising and acting as a surrogate candidate. He sometimes spoke on behalf of his father during Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Trump has done well to help his father’s political career, even claiming his father’s 2020 election loss was a fraud.
