A new video shows Tiffany Trump playfully dancing with former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell after she and the openly gay political adviser appeared at a ‘Trump Pride’ event together.
‘Dancing into Election Day with @tiffanytrump,’ he captioned the clip, which appeared to be filmed at a private Trump 2020 campaign fundraiser held at tech mogul Palmer Luckey’s estate in Newport Beach, Florida, last Sunday.
Busting a move: Richard Grenell, 54, took to Instagram to share a video of himself dancing with Tiffany Trump, 27, at a private fundraiser held in Newport Beach, California, on Sunday
On the day of the event, Grenell posted a video of President Trump waving to his supporters who were in boats on the water, but he waited until Friday to share footage of his dance with the first daughter.
In the clip, a maskless Tiffany and Grenell can be seen holding hands as he spins her and pulls her close. She then cheekily sticks out her tongue and breaks away from her dance partner, giving her hips a shake as people laugh in the background.
The 27-year-old showed off her West Coast style in a bright floral faux-wrap dress with a plunging neckline— the same frock she wore to ring in her birthday in Miami, Florida, the week before the fundraiser.
Tiffany’s boyfriend Michael Boulos was a fan of the video and commented with the tears of joy and heart emoji.

The recent Georgetown Law graduate re-posted the video on her Instagram Stories on Friday after sharing photos of herself at the event earlier in the week.
She looked right home in the Golden State as she posed for photos by the water.
‘Loved supporting my dad and being back in my home state of California! #15Days,’ she captioned the images.
Tiffany is President Trump’s only child with his second ex-wife Marla, whom he divorced in 1999.

While he and his first wife Ivana Trump raised their three eldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — in New York City, Tiffany spent most of her childhood with her mother in Calabasas, California.
Last Saturday, the day before the private fundraiser in Newport Beach, Tiffany and Grenell co-hosted a ‘Trump Pride’ event in Tampa, Florida, in an effort to court LGBTQ voters in the area.
Grennell, who is the Republican National Committee advisor, was appointed by President Trump as acting Director of National Intelligence earlier this year, making him the first openly gay person to serve in a Cabinet-level position.
His tenure ended after John Ratcliffe was confirmed as DNI in May.
‘My dad doesn’t look at someone … based on who you love. There should be love for all,’ Tiffany said during the event.

‘I know what my father believes in. Prior to politics, he supported gays, lesbians, the LGBQIA+ community,’ she added, forgetting the ‘T’ that stands for transgender in the initialism.
Critics mocked her speech and how she misstated LGBTQ at an event courting the LGBTQ community.
‘The daughter [Donald Trump] knows nothing about representing a community he knows nothing about,’ tweeted Louis Virtel of Crooked Media.
Meanwhile, the LGBTQ+ advocacy group GLAAD shared a link on Twitter to a resource cataloging ‘the anti-LGBTQ statements and actions’ of President Trump and his inner circle, writing: ‘Here’s your reminder that the Trump Administration hasn’t been a friend to LGBTQ people.’
During his presidency, Trump restricted transgender people from serving in the military, revoked protections for transgender students in schools, and opposed the Equality Act, which would have ensured federal protections for LGBTQ+ people.
