The media would love to hear that Donald Trump, Jr. and his ex-wife Vanessa are at each other’s throats over his new girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle.
They are not going to get their wish, though, as a picture Trump, Jr. sent out on Instagram over the Christmas holiday proves they are getting along just fine.

Trump, Jr. and Vanessa were married in 2005 and have five children together: Donald Trump III, Kai, Tristan, Chloe, and Spencer.
When they filed for divorce in March, both parties were adamant they were still friends.
Their marriage was ending, but they had every intention of raising their kids together and maintaining a friendship that had been built up over decades.
The media, for the most part, thought that was all window dressing so Trump, Jr. could protect his father from some type of family scandal.
At numerous “family” events, we have seen Vanessa make an appearance, always seeming to be in good spirits.
The pictures released by Trump, Jr. over Christmas continue to tell the story of a couple that although divorced, are still very much friends and still have the best interests of their children as their main priority.
Still Standing by His Side
One of the more stunning stories of the year regarding these two was when the media went after former Fox News star Kimberly Guilfoyle for dating Trump, Jr.
The “scandal,” as they called it, was because Guilfoyle was a prominent figure in the media.
How could her coverage possibly be neutral when it came to the President if she was involved with his son?
While Trump, Jr. was quick to point out many of the previous relationships between media and political personalities, many of them on the liberal side of the aisle, Vanessa came out very vocally to defend Guilfoyle.
After a scathing op-ed came out in the New York Daily News, Vanessa tweeted, “The lengths people will go to attack a woman simply because she’s dating Don.”
She continued, “We’ve been separated for over 9 months and respect each other’s decisions & privacy. We’ll focus on raising our great kids. Would be nice if the press did the same rather than obsess over our pvt lives.”
At a time when it would be easy to throw daggers, one cannot help but respect Vanessa Trump’s class in both defending her ex as well as maintaining a positive relationship to ensure their children’s well-being.
