Tiffany Trump's Interestingly Timed Engagement News Raises Eyebrows On Twitter
Tiffany Trump announced on Tuesday, the day before her father, President Donald Trump, left that she was engaged to Michael Boulos.
She shared the news on an Instagram post with a picture of the two at the White House, where Boulos reportedly suggested in the rose garden, “It has been an honor to celebrate many milestones and historic occasions and to create memories with my family here at White house, nothing special but my engagement to my amazing fiancé Michael! I feel blessed and excited for the next chapter. "
Boulos, 23, a London-based businessman, was born in Lebanon and grew up in Lagos, Nigeria, where his family's motorcycle sales and assembly business operates. Boulos has been described by Vanity Fair as the "billionaire heir" of the family-run company Boulos Enterprises.
Since 2018 he has been pictured at several events with the Trump family, including the address on the state of the Union last year. His recent tweets include a picture of himself and Tiffany with the Trump family shared by White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino, as well as a retweet from conservative commentators and conspiracy theorists Diamond and Silk criticizing President-elect Joe Biden.
Tiffany Trump, 27, the daughter of Trump's second wife, Marla Maples, has played a more subdued role than the president's older children throughout the presidency. Donald Jr., 43; Ivanka, 39; and Eric, 37; Ivana Trump's children were all heavily involved in the Trump campaign. Ivanka was part of the White House advisory staff. Trump's youngest son, Barron, 14, is his child with Melania Trump.
Tiffany Trump took a more prominent role in her father's 2020 campaign after completing the Georgetown Law last year. She spoke at the Republican National Convention and at campaign events in several states. She was beaten up by LGBTQ advocates in October after delivering a speech at a "Trump Pride" event in Tampa, where she became aware of the media's "fabricated lies" about the Trump administration's anti-LGBTQ platform and incorrectly worded the acronym, eliminating the T that refers to the transgender community.
Her engagement announcement comes in the final hours of her father's time at the White House. President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in on Wednesday. At the right time, critics raised their eyebrows and caused their name to start trending on Twitter.

Wow, this guy marrying Tiffany Trump sounds like a real winner. His last two tweets are a bullshit parrot point from FoxNews and a retweet from Rhinestone and Burlap. pic.twitter.com/62Oa1gpxtW

Each of these Trump kids had a choice, especially Tiffany, who barely knew her father when she was growing up. Reagan's children managed to reject their father's policies without rejecting him as a parent. Should have been an easy phone call for the daughter of a Grifter fascist.
