Hi everyone,
I was reading an article about Trump complimenting his daughter and he goes "Yeah, she's really something, and what a beauty, that one...". I'm a little confused as to what "that one" refers to?
Thank you.

    "that one..." just means "her".

    By saying "that one..." he implies "her, out of several people". Perhaps he means that she is prettier than her peers.
