Who Is Barron Trump?
Barron William Trump is the son of former model Melania Trump and U.S. President and real estate mogul Donald Trump. Barron is the couple’s only child and the only one of the president’s offspring residing with him in the White House. His mother, Melania, told ABC News that the youngest Trump likes wearing a suit every day — he is “not a sweatpants child.” Also, like his famous father, he enjoys golfing a lot.
Barron William Trump was born on March 20, 2006, in New York City. Having grown up inside of Trump Tower in New York City, where he has an entire floor to himself, Barron has always known a life of luxury. In an interview with Parenting, Melania revealed that Barron really liked planes and helicopters when he was little and that, as a hands-on mom, she cooked his breakfast and prepared his lunches. She also believed in encouraging his creativity — even when he would draw on the walls. “His imagination is growing and important,” she said. “If he draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over.”
Life at the White House
Barron and Melania stayed at Trump Tower for almost the first five months of Donald Trump’s presidency, so that Barron could finish his studies at the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on the Upper West Side. He and his mom moved into the White House on June 11, 2017, and he now attends St. Andrew’s Episcopal, a prep school in Maryland.
Barron is the first son of a president to reside in the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1963. Although he stays out of the spotlight for the most part, he has turned up for some of the White House’s fun holiday-themed events in 2017, including the annual Easter Egg Roll in April, where he joined his parents in signing cards for members of the American Armed Forces. He also supported his father’s pardoning of the turkeys before Thanksgiving and soon after, stepped out with his mom on the North Portico to receive the official Christmas tree from Wisconsin, which went up on display in the White House’s Blue Room.
