Barron Trump, who is rarely seen by the public, was spotted boarding Air Force One in Palm Beach together with his parents. The trip included the entire Trump family and Melania’s parents.


President Donald Trump’s 13-year-old son, Barron, was seen boarding Air Force One with the president himself and the first lady, Melania Trump. The sight of the teen was quite surprising as he does not usually make a public appearance.

The Trump family had a short vacation at Mar-a-Lago, Florida with Ivanka Trump, her husband, Jared Kushner, and their children, Theodore, Joseph, and Arabella. Melania’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs were also present during the trip. The two, who are from Slovenia, took oath last year to become American citizens.


Barron, who is almost as tall as his father, was spotted in a laid back outfit, sporting a navy blue t-shirt, a pair of blue jeans, and a belt to pull it all together. The president and the first lady, on the other hand, were more dressed up with Donald wearing a suit, a white dress shirt, and a red tie, while Melania wore a pink blouse and a pair of dark washed jeans.

Their short vacation at Mar-a-Lago came shortly after the Robert Mueller’s Russia probe came to a close.

Although it isn’t confirmed that this trip was a celebration of Trump’s victory, we know that the president is happy about the turnout. In a tweet he said:


“We need to know for future generations to understand. This Hoax should never be allowed to happen to another President or Administration again!”


Barron Trump, although always waited on by the media, is barely ever seen out. Perhaps the 13-year-old tries to live a normal life away from the limelight, but we know that this is nearly impossible when you’re the president’s son.

A few weeks ago, his mother, Melania, greeted his son a happy birthday on Instagram. The post included a photo of two gold balloons - one with the number one and the other, three. Instagram followers of the first lady were quick to notice the post as it gained over 200 thousand likes and comments wishing his son a happy birthday as well.


Tiffany Trump, Barron’s sister, also greeted him through a post on Instagram. The post included a photo of the two smiling and enjoying a happy moment together during the 2016 Republican National Convention, and another of their entire family. Just like Melania, the post gained thousands of likes and comments.


Unlike his sisters, Barron opts to keep things private and stay away from the spotlight. Because of this, the teen is barely seen on photos but makes an exception on special occasions such as family trips. 

Unlike other presidential children who attended school at Sidwell Friends, Barron goes to St. Andrew’s in Potomac, Maryland. Melania believes in this school and appreciates its “diverse community and commitment to academic excellence.”

Apart from attending school, he is also focused on playing sports. In a forum at Liberty University, Melania disclosed that her son is into sports, instead of social media. Trump also shared that he will be having difficulty allowing his son to play football. He said:


“I just don’t like the reports I see coming out having to do with football.”

Trump and Melania, although busy at work, still try to find time to spend with their youngest boy, and of course, with each other. A White House Official told CNN that the couple frequently enjoys long dinners together. He said:

“Those two will go and sit at dinner, and they are in the most in-depth conversations and will talk and sit there for hours, literally.”

It is nice to know that despite having a busy schedule and piles and piles of work to be done, the president still makes time for his family, as should be the case. Although America is a top priority, family will always be just as important.
