President Donald Trump reportedly revealed that his son, Barron, is not unhappy about skipping school amid the nationwide quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier this week, Donald Trump reportedly came out to say that his 14-year-old son, Barron, is "not so unhappy" about missing school.

The young boy who's currently quarantined alongside other members of the first family, in the White House, was discussed by his father on "Fox and Friends," on Monday. Trump said,
"Well, Barron's not so unhappy... They said you can't go to school and... I wouldn't say he sat up and complained about it."
The President went on to commend the educational sector on their switch to remote learning during the current nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Particularly Trump praised St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, which is Barron's school. He commended them on their implementation of distance learning.
He boasted that the teenager is a computer genius.
The President further added that the level of innovation that teleconferencing is at is helping world leaders to confer and hold meetings despite the coronavirus pandemic.

She posted a picture of silver balloons in the shape of the number "14" to celebrate Barron's birthday and captioned it, "Happy Birthday BWT."
Barron was born in 2006 to Trump and his wife Melania, and he's the couple's only child together. He has both German and English descent from his dad's end and Slovenian descent on his mother's side.
Melania Trump made mention of her Slovenian descent following a shared clip of Barron when he was a kid, where he put his thick accent on display while talking to his parents.
She explained that the boy spends a lot of time with her, so it's natural that he picked up his Slovenian accent from her.
President Trump had spoken about his son, during a rally last month. He boasted that the teenager is a computer genius and is capable of developing weebsites.
Trump added that Barron would have accomplished a better result without him having to pay the 14-year-old any money. Trump further joked about his son's height and admitted that the teenager is taller than him.
