Tiffany Trump spoke on behalf of her father during the second night of the Republican National Convention, insisting that President Donald Trump was a champion of others and that she was just like everyone else.

Trump’s youngest daughter was one of the many members of the president’s family who appeared on the telecast to vouch for him.

Her mother is actress/socialite Marla Maples, who had an affair with Trump while he was married to his first wife, Ivanka. Maples became his second wife, but the couple divorced after a few years.

An heiress to her father’s billion-dollar fortune, Tiffany is dating businessman Michael Boulous, whose father is also a billionaire.

Tiffany, 26, graduated from Georgetown University law school earlier this year and began her appeal by comparing herself to everyday Americans.

She claimed she was just like those struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Like so many students across the world, I graduated from law school during the pandemic. Our generation is unified in facing the future in uncertain times ― and many of us are considering what kind of country we want to live in,” she said. “As a recent graduate, I can relate to so many of you who might be looking for a job.”

Unlike Tiffany, many Americans have had to file for unemployment due to the pandemic nor did they graduate from prestigious universities. It was an irony not lost to those on social media.

Tiffany also pitched her father as best suited to bring back the jobs lost during the pandemic and restart the sluggish economy.

“My father built a thriving economy once and believe me, he will do it again. This election, I urge each and every one of you to transcend political boundaries,” she said.

“This is a fight for freedom versus oppression, for opportunity versus stagnation. A fight to keep America true to America.”

She continued by stating she would tell “the uncensored truth of what we believe in,” which was “opportunity and freedom of thought and expression.” She blasted the Democratic Party and the media for “inhibiting our diversity of thought and inclusion of ideas.”

“If you care about living your life without restraints, about rebelling against those who would suppress your voice, and building YOUR American Dream,” Trump said, “then the choice in this election is clear.”

She finished her speech by declaring that a belief in her words would suggest that a person does indeed support the president and his vision of America.

“A country founded on ideas, not identity, a country where our differences are embraced. And the only country where the word dream has been attached to it, because in America, your life is yours to chart,” she said.

“So if you’re hearing these things, and thinking to yourself, that is the kind of country I want to live in, whether you realize it or not, you are a Trump supporter.”
