Tiffany Trump reportedly splits from boyfriend -- is it easy dating as a presidential daughter?

Tiffany Trump is a lot like any other 24-year-old: she is getting her law degree, hangs out with friends and family, and (maybe) gets her heart broken.

After more than two years dating, the first daughter has reportedly split from Ross Mechanic, 23, who she met while they both were students at the University of Pennsylvania. Rumors began circulating in September that the couple had called it quits. However, Mechanic made the breakup official when he shared a series of snaps kissing a new woman on his now-private Instagram stories, according to the Daily Mail.

President Donald Trump’s youngest daughter has not spoken about the status of the couple’s relationship. The split might have come after the couple traveled to Europe together last summer, as Mechanic stayed in New York City while Trump moved to Washington for law school.

Dating a first daughter could obviously be stressful. Despite being private citizens, presidential children are often under constant public scrutiny and forced to be tabloid fodder. Malia Obama’s new romance with British boyfriend Rory Farquharson made headlines around the world a year after her dad,  former President Obama, moved out of the White House in early 2017.

Chelsea Clinton tweeted, urging the public about keeping the lives of the president’s children private.

Clinton opened up about the challenges of dating as first daughter. In a 2012 interview with Vogue agazine, Clinton, who sparked a media storm when she married Marc Mezvinsky in 2010 in a lavish ceremony, admits it was only afterward that she decided fame was either “something I could continue to ignore or it was something I could try to use to highlight causes that I really cared about.”

Like Clinton, George W. Bush’s twin daughters, Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush, also learned that being the president’s daughter will have all eyes on you. The twins opened up about their tumultuous first years in the White House and having their lives commented on by strangers. In their memoir, SistersFirst, Hager writes,  “Barbara’s and my faces were suddenly everywhere, and the words accompanying them were almost universally negative.”

Although specific details regarding the cause of Trump and Mechanic’s split are not known, it seems pretty clear being in the public eye could put a strain on the relationship.
