Trump, Jr. and Wife Vanessa Officially Announce They’re Separating

Donald Trump, Jr. and wife Vanessa announced in a joint statement that they are separating.

The pair said in the statement: “After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways.”

It appears to be an amicable separation as the statement added:”We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”

No specific reason was given for the couple’s decision to separate.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Donald Trump Jr. &amp; his wife Vanessa Trump jointly announce they area separating after divorce reports surface. &quot;We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority,&quot; they say <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; KTLA (@KTLA) <a href="">March 15, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

Before the joint announcement by the couple, there were earlier reports that say Vanessa filed divorce papers in Manhattan Supreme Court. The New York Daily News also reported that the couple’s divorce was uncontested.

Trump, the President’s oldest son and serves as an executive at the Trump organization. He married Vanessa, a former model, in 2005. The two are both 40 years old.

The pair met in 2003 when they were introduced to each other by Donald Trump at a fashion show.

Vanessa kept a private and low-profile through-out Trump’s presidential campaign and into his more than a year-old presidency, but she was in the news last month when she opened a letter containing a suspicious substance. The content later turned to be nothing but corn starch. Vanessa was taken to the hospital then as a precaution but was unharmed from the incident.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Thank you so much to everyone that helped catch the person who sent the horrifying envelope that I opened up two weeks ago! A special thanks to <a href="">@SecretService</a> and all the dedicated state &amp; federal agencies in Boston, NYC &amp; around the US!</p>&mdash; Vanessa Trump (@MrsVanessaTrump) <a href="">March 2, 2018</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We had a fun day visiting Grandpa and First Lady Melania at the White House! <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Vanessa Trump (@MrsVanessaTrump) <a href="">September 1, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="" charset="utf-8"></script>

The White House has refused to comment on the pair’s separation and requested the media to turn to the Trump Organization instead. Trump, Jr. does not hold an official function in his father’s administration.

Even tho I support Trump.

I clearly understand the Legal / Tax laws and how divorce is a way to protect wealth, assets and avoid taxes.

Rich Hollywood actors uses this dodge all the time.
