【人民報消息】(人民報記者肖辛綜合報導)蒂凡尼是川普的次女,出生於1993年,是川普和他第二任妻子、電視名人瑪拉.梅波斯(Marla Maples)的女兒。蒂芙尼於1999年父母離異後與母親住在加州,據說母女感情非常好。

23歲的蒂芙尼今年5月畢業於常春藤盟校賓夕法尼亞大學(University of Pennsylvania),成為父親川普的校友。她就讀藝術與科學學院,社會學及都市學雙主修。

川普曾說,蒂芙尼是每門學科成績都拿A的高材生,全家人都以她為榮。蒂芙尼曾在2014年出過單曲《像只小鳥》(Like a Bird)。

下面是蒂凡尼在2016年7月19日共和黨全國代表大會的第二晚大會上為其父親競選總統提名發表的演講(人民報提供文字稿):

非常感謝大家。

今晚能和你們在一起真是太驚喜了。

聊一聊我的父親,也就是你們的總統候選人。如果我有些緊張請原諒我。

幾個月前我大學畢業的時候,從沒有想象過我能站在這裏進行全國性的演講,當然在同學面前演講的機會並不少,但是從未面對這麼多群眾,特別是有超過千萬的觀眾在收看。

但我和我父親一樣,在挑戰面前從不退縮。帶著對大會現場的些許生疏,帶著無比的榮幸,以及對全美國接下來的即將認識的這位男士滿滿的信心,所以我來了。

人們常說,「只要功夫深,鐵杵磨成針」。但真正做到又談何容易。而我父親卻做到了。這是他眾多優良品質中的一個,並且我一生都在見證著。無論他做什麼事情都全力以赴並且做的都很好。

他追求卓越的精神會感染別人,他有一種能帶出別人光明一面的獨特天賦,從身邊人開始,他不斷的幫助我成為最好的自己。通過鼓勵,並且以身作則,他激勵我努力工作,勿忘初心。這就是他的魔力。他提煉人們的才能和幹勁,並且幫其發揮出最大潛能。這種品質是做好一個父親的前提,更是做好一個美國總統的前提。

作為一名剛畢業的大學生,我各方面能力都有待提高。但我父親對我做的一切事情都引以為豪,事無巨細。我仍然保留著我全部的成績單,有些可以追溯到幼兒園。因為我喜歡去回顧他在我成績單上留下的貼心字條。你們猜想不到,作為一個很重視結果的人,我父親評語的關注點卻在老師所提及的我的課堂和課後的表現上,完全沒有關注分數評級。唐納德·特朗普從沒有做過半途而廢的事情,尤其作為一名父親。他總是問起我在喬治亞州的家人,確認他們都很健康安全,包括我那曾經服役於越南的叔叔;還有我97歲曾服役於第二次世界大戰的曾祖父。

我認為一個人的品德,在他人生最黑暗的時期方能顯示出來。對我而言,父母的品德體現於孩子在最低谷時如何給予其鼓勵與支持。幾年前,我失去了一位至親。我接到的第一通電話,和我猜想的一樣,就是父親打來的。在這段難熬的日子裏,要是沒有他做堅強的後盾,我不知道怎麼樣才能挺過來。

眾所周知,在悲痛中最需要的就是最最細微的充滿愛意的行為。我父親很善於給建議,你大概能猜到吧。他說話總是簡明扼要,給人的收獲卻一分不少。這些建議幫助我們找到自己的天賦與人生之路。如果你做你所愛,不遺餘力,寵辱不驚,你大概就明白了川普的成功秘訣。

我父親是天生的鼓舞者,從不會讓你放低眼光或者放棄夢想。我總是很想將他介紹給我的朋友們,尤其那些喜歡先入為主的人,因為他們遇到的將會是一個天生充滿魅力而非徒有其表的人。

我父親本人,非常友好、貼心、風趣、真實。我朋友對他的印象,也是我對他的印象:堅強的、有安全感的、和善的、討人喜歡的,能讓我自豪的稱之為父親的人。

我從未構想過在這個座無虛席的會場上說這些話,但我感激這次機會。我一生都很敬佩父親,並向他奉獻出我全部的愛意。

願上帝保佑你們。謝謝。

川普次女蒂凡尼在共和黨總統提名大會上的演講。

英文原稿如下:

Thank you all so much.

It's so amazing to be with you tonight and say a few words about my father and your nominee for president. Please excuse me if I'm a little nervous. When I graduated college a couple of months ago, I never expected to be here tonight addressing the nation. I've given a few speeches in front of classrooms of students, but never in an arena with more than ten million people watching. But, like my father, I never back down from challenges, so here I am, a little new to the convention scene but incredibly honored and very confident in the good man that America is coming to know.

It's often said that with enough effort and determination you can do whatever you put your mind to. But saying those words and living them are different things, and my father has lived them. It's one of his defining qualities and I've seen it in action all of my life. Whatever he does, he gives his all and does it well. His desire for excellence is contagious. He possesses a unique gift for bringing that trait out in others, starting with those closest to him. He's always helped me be the best version of myself by encouragement and by example. He motivates me to work my hardest and to always stay true to who I am and what I believe. That's what he does: he draws out the talent and drive in people so that they can achieve their full potential. That's a great quality to have in a father and better yet in the president of the United States.

As a recent college graduate, many of my accomplishments are still to come. But my dad takes such pride in all that I've done so far, no matter how big or how small. I still keep all of my report cards, some dating back to kindergarten, because I like to look back and see the sweet notes he wrote on each and every one of them. Contrary to what you might expect from someone who places an emphasis on results, my dad's comments referred often to the sentiments expressed by my teachers, about how I acted in and out of the classroom, just not even focusing on the letter grades themselves. Donald Trump has never done anything halfway, least of all as a parent. My father always asked about my family in Georgia to make sure that they are healthy and safe. My uncle served in Vietnam and my 97-year-old grandfather served in World War II.

I believe the measure of a person is revealed in their darkest times. For me, the measure of a parent is based on how they support and bolster you when you're down. A few years ago, someone very dear to me passed away and the first call I got, as I knew I would, came from my father. Without his unwavering support and care for me during such a challenging time, I don't know how I would have made it through.

As far too many know, it is the small, loving acts that help an enormous amount in times of grief. My father is good with advice, as you might guess, but he keeps it short, and the takeaway is usually the same: to help us find our own way, and our own gifts. If you do what you love, hold nothing back, and never let fear of failure get in the way, then you've pretty much figured out the Trump formula.

My dad is a natural-born encourager, the last person who will ever tell you to lower your sights or give up your dream. I always look forward to introducing him to my friends, especially the ones with pre-conceived notions because they meet a man with natural charm and no facade. In person, my father is so friendly, so considerate, so funny, and so real. My friends walk away with a glimpse of all that he is and all that he means to me of the strong, protective, kind, and endearing man I am so proud to call my father.

I never pictured myself saying all of this to a packed arena, but I am grateful and fortunate for the chance. I have admired my father all of my life, and I love him with all my heart.

God bless you, and thank you.

Tiffany Ariana Trump
