Barron Trump

Barron Trump

Born March 20, 2006
Manhattan, New York

Barron William Trump (born March 20, 2006) is Donald Trump's youngest child and his only child with Melania Trump. Barron is currently attending the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He is fluent in Slovene which he speaks with his mother and grandparents, who also live in New York.

During his early childhood, Barron made several television appearances, including on The Apprentice and The Oprah Winfrey Show. He did not immediately join Trump in the White House but instead remained at Trump Tower with his mother, until the end of the school term.

Barron made a total of three public appearances on the campaign trail, appearing at a campaign rally in South Carolina, and attending his father's RNC acceptance speech and presidential victory speech. While absent from pre-inauguration events, he was at his father's inauguration ceremony in January 2017 and some of the following events.

Soon after his father was sworn in as President, Barron found himself at the centre of controversy, after a Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich was “suspended indefinitely” for tweeting a bizarre rant on the ten-year-old.[1] During Trump's inauguration ceremony, Modern Family actress Julie Bowen also attacked Barron, sharing a number of Instagram posts making fun of Barron. "I think Barron is on his Gameboy. Can’t say I blame him", she captioned one photo of Barron looking at the floor during his father's swearing-in ceremony.[2]
