How Rich Is Lara Trump?
Lara Trump, 51, wife of Eric Trump and daughter-in-law of former President Donald J. Trump, hasn’t shied away from speaking her mind. In fact, she has made quite a name for herself as a Fox News political commentator.
Following years of appearances on shows like “Hannity,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “The Ingraham Angle” as a Trump campaign senior advisor, the former producer and story coordinator of CBS’ “Inside Edition” finally cemented her place with Fox News.
In March of this year, Lara came onboard as an on-air contributor. She has appeared on “Fox News Primetime” a number of times since then and serves as co-host of “The Big Saturday Show” and “The Big Sunday Show” in addition to contributing to a number of other programs, including “Fox and Friends” and “Fox Files.”
It’s unclear just how much Lara earns in her current role at Fox, but Fox News contributors usually earn anywhere from $61,655 to $67,195 annually, based on a report from one employee to Glassdoor. However, contributors’ pay is “largely subject to their personality and value they would generate,” revealed RedLasso, so it’s safe to assume she makes much more.
Trump’s net worth is an estimated $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, which seems small compared to her husband’s $300 million net worth.
Lara Trump’s Role in Her Father-In-Laws Presidency
Lara figured prominently in Trump’s campaign for the 2016 election.
She was hired to produce and host Trump Productions’ “Real News Update” webcast in 2017. That same year, she was appointed as senior consultant for Brad Parscale, the senior adviser for data and digital operations for Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and served as a campaign senior advisor. The campaign apparently paid her $180,000 a year through Parscale’s private company, Parscale Strategy, according to Business Insider.
Lara Trump’s Personal Life
Trump was born on October 12, 1982 in New Hanover, North Carolina, according to IMDb. In 2014, she wed longtime boyfriend Eric Trump, the son of Donald Trump and his ex-wife, Ivana.
Eric Trump is executive vice president of the Trump Organization, which owns and operates Donald Trump’s global real estate empire.
The couple became neighbors with Donald Trump’s eldest son, Don Jr., and Don’s partner, Kimberly Guilfoyle, when they splurged on a $3.2 million mansion in a Jupiter, Fla. gated community, reported Business Insider.
They have two children together: Eric “Luke” Trump, 4, and Carolina Dorothy Trump, 2.
Lara was featured in the 2020 documentary “The Trump I Know,” produced by Daryl Lefeve and Joe Knopp. Knopp’s initial introduction to Lara peaked his interest in producing the documentary centered around the famous family, according to Deadline.
Lara had some smaller roles in the media prior to engulfing herself in the Trump campaign. In 1994, she was on NBC’s “Extra with Billy Bush,” and in 2007, she appeared on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” according to IMDb.
In March, the contributor noted on “Fox and Friends” that she was still considering running for the North Carolina U.S. Senate seat in 2022. She later dismissed the idea, at least for the time being. “No for now, not no forever,” she said at the North Carolina GOP Convention on June 5, according to The Palm Beach Post.
