Who is Lara Trump? Her Bio, Age, Height, Body Measurements, Other Facts 

Lara Trump is popular for different things. Married to Eric Trump who is the son of the American president Donald Trump, she is also a campaign advisor as well as a TV host and producer mostly known for the webcast Real News Update and Inside Edition on CBS. Just like other members of the Trump family, she has not escaped the scrutiny of the public. Here is all to know about her.

Who is Lara Trump? Bio and Age

The TV host was born Lara Lea Yunaska on October 12, 1982, in Wilmington, North Carolina to Robert Luke Yunaska and Linda Yunaska. She was raised alongside her younger brother, Kyle Yunaska in North Carolina. Growing up, Lara Trump whose father was into the building of boats, took to sports, even though she would not come to pursue it professionally. Because of that, she had wanted to become a sports reporter.

For her education, Trump attended the North Carolina State University from where she graduated in 2005. There, she studied communication media, which has helped her with her TV work. Between 2009 and 2010, she ran her business known as the Lara Lea Confections. She joined Inside Edition in 2012, working as a Story Coordinator, and then as an associate producer between 2013 and 2016.

Political Rise

Even though it was with the media that she began, Lara Trump soon dropped it to help her father-in-law after he got elected as the flag bearer of the Republican Party in the build-up to the Presidential election of 2016. This got her into politics, serving as an online producer and fundraiser for the presidential hopeful.

In addition to that, she would also go on to work with the Real News Update for the Trump Campaign. The idea of this was to produce media content that is real to counter the fake news that the American President has insisted is very popular and working against him.

Another thing that she has been involved in outside her professional life is advocacy for wild horses and shelter animals. A lover of dogs, she has given her voice to the just treatment of animals and is against puppy mills which according to her, are only breeding sweatshops for dogs.
