The Trump family (German [ˈtʁʊmp]; Palatine German [ˈdrʊmp]; American English /ˈtrʌmp/) is a German and German-American family, descended from Johann Philipp Trump, a native of the village of Kallstadt, now in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.

Several family members moved to the United States in the 19th century, among them Johann Heinrich Heinz, a son of Charlotte Louisa Trump, who became the father of Henry J. Heinz, the founder of the Heinz company. A prominent branch of the family is the family of Donald Trump, descended from Friedrich (Frederick) Trump (1869–1918) and Elisabeth Trump née Christ (1880–1966), both natives of Kallstadt. The Trump family have been prominent in the fields of real estate, entertainment, business, and politics. Its most famous member is American President-elect Donald Trump, designated to enter office on 20 January 2017. Other prominent family members are the real estate developer Fred Trump, the noted physicist and inventor John G. Trump and the federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry.

The surname Trump is found throughout Germany.

It is recorded as the name of this family in Kallstadt since the 17th century. Many family members were winegrowers and distinguished members of the local community there. Family members also still live in the family's ancestral region in southwestern Germany.
