MEET THE TRUMPS: A guide to the GOP front-runner's powerful, far-reaching family

After a long, mostly successful career as a real-estate mogul and television personality, Donald Trump made good on years of flirtation and entered the presidential race earlier this summer.

So far, the results have been stunning: He’s the front-runner in every Republican primary poll of the 2016 race. But perhaps it’s no surprise he’s garnering the most headlines and attention: His family has been an institution since the era of World War I.

Fred Trump built a fortune of as much as $US300 million by the time of his death, and his son has only built on it. Donald Trump has claimed he’s worth more than $US10 billion.

The graphic below depicts Trump’s wide-ranging family, which includes five children from three wives.
