Ivanka Trump is an American businessperson, socialite, writer, and model. She has been Assistant to the President of the United States, since March 29, 2017.

Ivanka is the daughter of Ivana Trump (born Ivana Marie Zelníčková), a model, and Donald Trump, a businessperson, television personality, and the 45th President of the United States.

Her paternal grandfather, Fred Trump, was a prominent real estate developer. Her father is of half German and half Scottish descent. Her mother is Czech. Ivanka’s siblings are Eric Trump and Donald Trump, Jr., who work in business, and her half-siblings are Tiffany Trump and Barron Trump. Ivanka’s aunt (her father’s sister), Maryanne Trump Barry, is a prominent judge. Ivanka’s great-uncle (her paternal grandfather’s brother) was John G. Trump (John George Trump), an electrical engineer, inventor, and physicist.

Ivanka is married to businessperson and investor Jared Kushner. Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism in 2009. She took on the name Yael, and is an observant Jew.

While it is sometimes stated that Ivanka’s great-grandfather was born under the surname “Drumpf”, this is not accurate. The family surname was simply “Trump” going back at least several generations.

Ivanka’s paternal grandfather was Frederick Christ Trump (the son of Friedrich/Friederich/Frederick Trump and Elizabeth/Elisabeth Christ). Ivanka’s grandfather Frederick was born in New York, to German parents, from Kallstadt, Rheinland-Pfalz. Ivanka’s great-grandfather Friedrich was the son of Christian Johannes Trump and Katerina/Katherina/Katharina Kober. Elizabeth was the daughter of Christian/Philipp Christ and Anna Maria/Marie Anthon/Rathon.

Ivanka’s paternal grandmother was Mary Anne MacLeod (the daughter of Malcolm/Calum Macleod and Mary Smith). Ivanka’s grandmother Mary Anne was Scottish, born in Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis. She came to the U.S. around 1929, at the age of seventeen, and worked as a maid in New York. Malcolm was the son of Alexander Macleod and Anne/Ann Macleod. Ivanka’s great-grandmother Mary was the daughter of Donald Smith and Mary Macaulay/Macauley.

Ivanka’s maternal grandparents are František Milan Zelníček (the son of Milos Zelníček) and Marie Francová.

Ivanka’s grandfather is Miloš ZELNÍČEK, not Zelničkov. We haven’t got suffix -a like Russians. We have got suffix -ová.

Im guessing Ivanka is a Czech name.

Her mother is a former Czech ski master Ivana Trump.
I would say, the mother looked like better (more slim)

Ivanka is nickname for Slavic name Ivana which it’s version of Hebrew name John meaning “gift by God”.

For some reason, I always thought she was Russian. Maybe it’s her first name? idk
