DONALD Trump has hit back saying he loves his daughter Tiffany after reports suggested he is embarrassed by her weight.
Tiffany Trump, 25, is the only child between the US President and his second wife Marla Maples.
Donald Trump, 73, told reporters: “She’s going to be calling me when we get to Camp David.
“I love Tiffany. She’s a wonderful person and she studies hard.”
His personal assistant Madeleine Westerhout was forced to resign from her White House job on Thursday having bragged to reporters she had a better relationship with Trump than his own daughters Ivanka and Tiffany and that he did not like being seen in pictures with Tiffany because he perceived her to be overweight.
The comments were said to have been made at an off-the-record dinner on August 17.
She reportedly also said that Trump “couldn’t pick Tiffany out of a crowd.”
Trump described the comments as “absolutely false”.
He praised Westerhout’s professionalism, saying she “always did a good job” but added her comments were “a little bit hurtful” to him.
Westerhout, 28, was seen as an important ‘gatekeeper’ for the President, who controlled outside advisers and who got access to Mr Trump.
In a 2018 interview with the Washington Post, Trump said: “Madeleine is the key. She’s the secret.”
In February this year Westerhout blasted an unknown person who leaked three months of Mr Trump’s calendar appointments to the press.
She wrote on Twitter at the time: “What these don’t show are the hundreds of calls and meetings @realDonaldTrump takes everyday.
“This POTUS is working harder for the American people than anyone in recent history.”
Trump married Maples in December 1993 but they divorced in 1999 having been separated for two years.
Tiffany was raised by her mum in California.
