A treasure trove of photos were found in a thrift store by a collector and saved for a moment exactly like this. When the U.S needed a little look into Trump’s life, outside of the media trashing him, these photos surely gave it.
With over 1000 photos found, they paint a beautiful picture of Trump’s love for his family and America. The were apparently discarded by his ex wife Ivana, stuffed in a suitcase with a bunch of handwritten notes, wedding album, baby books and other memorabilia.
What a find!
Daily Mail has the story:
There are photos of Donald like he’s never, or at the very least rarely, ever been seen before.

A self proclaimed teetotaler, there are undated shots of him drinking what appears to be wine, possibly taken before his older brother Fred ‘Freddy’ Trump, Jr.’s out of control drinking lead to an early death in1981. He was just 43 years old.
And when is the last time anyone, outside of possibly Donald’s immediate family, including third wife Melania, has seen him not wearing anything but a suit?
One photo in the collection has a sexy looking young Trump shirtless and in a white terry cloth robe seated, as well as sprawled across a bed, in a very Burt Reynolds, ‘Cosmopolitan’ magazine-type pose, showing exposed legs.
He’s also seen wearing a white robe while snuggling close with one of his young children in bed–all tasteful and innocent, unlike disgraced New York Congressman Anthony D. Weiner, who this past August was exposed after sexting an image of his bulging.crotch as he lay next to his 4-year old son, Jordan.
And in yet another personal shot, Donald is even shown changing diapers!
The intimate family pictures mainly span the decades of the 1970s through the 1990s – before the Donald’s second wife Marla Maples and third and current spouse Melania.
The pile features candid shots, polaroids and agency pictures from the likes of society shooter Mary Hilliard to Ron Galella, dubbed the ‘Paparazzo Extraordinaire’ and the bane of favorite subject Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ existence.
There is a 1977 Trump wedding album that shows a beautiful and radiant Ivana in her rather simple white gown and her dashing groom, including one at the altar of the Marble Collegiate Church in New York City, as they exchanged vows.
Dancing at the reception that followed are shots of the groom’s folks Fred Sr., and Mary and the bride’s parents, Milos Zeinicek and Marie Francova.
When the couple became parents of three, Donald, Jr., Ivanka and Eric, their birthday parties were snapped and notable in the fact that they did not seem like over the top affairs, but simply happy celebrations with no imported circuses or other extravagant entertainment.
