It looks like Barron Trump, the son of business mogul Donald Trump, took after his mother when it comes to leading a life away from the spotlight. Unlike the Former President of the United States, neither his wife nor his youngest son want to be exposed. What’s most, they avoid any possibility to be seen in public if there is no really need for such a thing.
However, now that his father would be running for president again, 16-year-old Barron’s media exposure seems to be making a very definite switch of late.
During the press conference held at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida at which Trump announced his candidacy, Barron could be seen standing right by his side.
“In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.
“Two years ago, we were a great nation, and soon, we will be a great nation again. This will not be my campaign, this will be our campaign, all, together.”
Trump claimed, “I have no doubt that by 2024, it will sadly be much worse, and they will see clearly what has happened and is happening to our country – and the voting will be much different.”
What many noticed at the press conference was that Barron didn’t stop growing from the last time he was spotted out in public, including Ivana Trump’s funeral which he attended together with his parents.
Last year, Donald Trump, who stands at “only” 6 feet 3, actually spoke of his son’s height.
“Barron is 6-foot-7, can you believe it? And he’s 15,” Trump said.told NY Post.
“Eric is short — he’s only 6-foot-6.”
In one clip from Trump’s press conference, panning across an entire room of people, the president’s son could clearly be seen in the background, dwarfing all others.
In the past, Melania spoke of her son as of a very creative child. In a 2015 People interview, she said: “Barron is 9 years old. He needs somebody as a parent there, so I am with him all the time as you know my husband is traveling all the time.”
“We keep it down to a minimum,” Trump added. “If you have too much help, you don’t get to know your children.”
They let his creativity grow and never limit him when it comes to his interests. Speaking to Parenting, as quoted by Metro, Melania said: “In his space, the décor style of the rest of our home is mixed with what he is into: planes and helicopters.
“We let him be creative; let his imagination fly and do whatever he wants. Whatever he wants to do with his own room later on, he can do it. Whatever he wants to do with his own room he can do it. He draws on the walls, we can paint it over.
“When he was smaller, he started drawing on the walls,” she added. “His imagination is growing and important. He draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over. One day he was playing bakery and he wrote ‘Barron’s Bakery’ on the wall with crayons. He is very creative, if you say to a child ‘no, no, no,’ where does the creativity go?”
The truth is that Melania has been trying really hard to protect Barron from the things happening around them, including the criminal cases against Donald Trump for which she hadn’t accompanied him at the courtroom, which caused quite a stir at the time.
According to a source close to the former first lady, the real reason behind her decision was to protect her son.
“Melania is good at taking care of business at hand, which includes her own life, the life of her son, and the lives of her close family members,” the source told People.
“She would not stand in a circle of people she knows and openly comment on the lawsuits or the mug shot. She will have her way of dealing with this and anything else publicly when she feels like it,” the source added. “Remember, Melania is a mom with a not-yet-adult son to protect. A mug shot that everyone is talking about is just one more issue to wade through.”
“Barron has always been a first priority in [Melania’s] life. Of course, she is worried and concerned about the legal issues, but she has not done anything more to protect Barron now than she ever did. She has always put him first. She is a good mother.”
However, no matter how hard she tries, Melania can’t hide Barron from the world. “They live in a fairy tale world and just deal with things as they come and seem to survive pretty well,” the source says. “They do what is possible to get past the problems without disrupting their lifestyle.”
“Melania is leading her own life and still feels happy being at Mar-a-Lago, surrounded by people who love her and who never talk about reality or bad things about her husband.”
As he’s preparing to attend college in the fall, Barron has been given a more significant public role within his family.
This year, he appeared on the Christmas family photo alongside his siblings and the rest of the members of the family, although he’s mother was absent from the picture. “Melania’s decision to include Barron in this family activity, even if she couldn’t be there herself, might be a significant turning point, potentially fostering a new level of support between Melania and Donald,” Melania’s former senior aide, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, told the New York Post.
“Barron’s appearance is truly monumental and shows Donald and Melania are in lockstep with one another. I believe we will be seeing more of him now. Nothing happens by chance with Melania.”
According to people close to the family, Melania is worried of her and her son’s future if her husband is found guilty of the charges. Allegedly, she’s now re-negotiating the terms of her prenuptial agreement with Donald and is considering a “postnup.”
“This agreement was necessary because of the current legal battles. [Donald] has suffered,” a source told Page Six, adding that the re-negotiated prenup will “provide a more solid future” for Melania and Barron if the couple would go separate ways.
“It’s not that she threatened to leave him. It’s definitely the underlying idea.”
Melania simply wants to make sure there would be a “specific amount at minimum” that Barron is supposed to obtain.
“This is at least the third time Melania has re-negotiated the terms of her martial agreement.”
