Who is Barron Trump, Donald and Melania Trump’s son? The handsome young man is only 9-years-old, but he’s already a captivating figure. If his father becomes President of the United States, he’ll be the nation’s First Son in the White House.
As Bustle reports, Barron Trump could be a “big deal someday.” The youngest Trump child was born on March 20, 2006. He’s the only child of Donald and Melania. Donald has four other children – Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka with ex-wife Ivana Trump, and Tiffany Trump from second ex-wife, Marla Maples.
Barron is occasionally spotted on camera after one of his father’s political debates. At this point in the race, Donald Trump is the Republican front-runner for the nation’s highest office. If he becomes president, Barron will make a natural as the first son.
What are some qualities about Barron Trump?
According to Melania, she told Parenting magazine that he’s “very strong-minded, very special, smart boy. She said Barron “knows exactly what he wants.” She adds that his personality is why she calls him “little Donald.”
Barron likes creating artwork of planes and helicopters. Interestingly enough, Melania shared that Barron “does not like covers with airplanes or cars on them. He likes clean and white.”
Barron Trump has a whole floor to call his own in the family’s Manhattan penthouse. In spite of his privileged life as the son of extremely wealthy parents, his mother and father believe in being hands-on for their child. The Trumps have staff who cook, clean, and tend to other needs they have but don’t have a nanny for Barron.
“We keep it down to a minimum,” Donald Trump told People magazine in October. “If you have too much help, you don’t get to know your children.”
Trump added, “I’ve always prided myself on being a good father.”
Melania spends the majority of her time with Barron at home or at their other residence at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. She believes in giving her son as much of focus as she can while her husband is out on the campaign trail.
Melania told People that she and Barron are “very close” because she makes him her “top priority.”
“He needs somebody as a parent there, so I am with him all the time,” Melania said.
Melania said he enjoys baseball, golf, and playing with a lot of friends. His father even calls him a “natural athlete.”
Melania has nicknamed her son “mini-Donald” because he’s so much like his father.
Barron Trump likes very much to mimic dad in more ways than one. He enjoys wearing suits, Donald’s ultimate trademark look. In an interview with ABC News in April 2013, Melania said Barron – who was 7-years-old at the time – wasn’t a sweatpants kind of kid.
“He’s not a sweatpants child,” says Melania. “He doesn’t mind putting on [a suit]-but not every day- and he likes to dress up in a tie sometimes like Daddy.”
The father-son duo also play golf and enjoy having dinners together. Melania describes them as having a ”beautiful relationship full of respect and love.”
Since Donald is so busy with his campaign and life as a successful businessman, the time he spends with Barron is “quality,” Melania said.
Barron Trump is likely to follow in his father’s footsteps in business or even politics. He stands to inherit a ridiculous fortune whichever direction he goes. All eyes will be on this young man as he grows older and possibly takes up residence with his parents in the White House.
