Tiffany Trump has been privately dating Michael Boulos, the son of a multi-billion dollar family in Nigeria, Page Six reports.
A source close to Tiffany tells the outlet that she and Boulos spent Thanksgiving together earlier this month and that he met most of her family.
Tiffany and Boulos are assumed to have started dating over the summer when they met while on vacation in Mykonos. Boulos grew up in Lagos, the largest city in Nigeria—a country which Tiffany’s father President Trump once referred to as a “shithole country.” Back in January of this year, a source who works within the White House reported to CNN that President Trump had denounced immigrants by asking aides,”Why do we want all these people from shithole countries coming here?”
“Tiffany is happy she has so far been able to keep things with Michael under the radar,” explains Page Six’s source. “But she introduced him to her family at Thanksgiving, and he comes across as a very intelligent young man from a great family. There was no mention of the president’s unfortunate comment about African nations.”
President Trump later denied using the word “shithole” to describe Nigeria as a country, but did admit that he had used “tough” language when referring to the country behind closed doors. While hosting Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari in Washington, D.C. in April, Business Insider quotes Trump as referring to “some countries that are in very bad shape.”
