Barron Trump is perhaps the least known of the five children of Donald Trump. He is not only the youngest Trump child but also the only child Trump has with his current wife and the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump. While both Donald and Melania have made it clear very often that they plan to keep the youngest Trump away from the spotlight, Americans have shown a lot of interest in knowing about Barron’s life. In this video, we tell you about Donald Trump’s unusual relationship with his son Baron. Did you know that while President Trump calls his son a natural athlete and those others around Trump see Barron as a Mini Donald, Trump Senior has never once changed Barron’s diapers? In this video, we will tell you more such interesting facts.
Melania and Barron Moved into the White House Only After He Finished His Year at the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School
Barron was born on March 20, 2006, and is the only child of Donald and Melania Trump. Though Melania was a permanent resident of the United States, she became a U.S. citizen in July 2006, almost a year and a half after her marriage to Donald Trump and three months after her son’s birth. On his father’s side, Barron has German and Scottish ancestry and on his mother’s side, he is of Slovenian descent.
After Donald Trump won the Presidential election in 2016, he moved into the White House to take up his role as POTUS. However, Barron, along with his mother Melania, continued to stay at Trump Towers on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Barron and Melania moved into the White House only after Barron finished his year at the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School. If you are wondering, the yearly fee of the school to which Barron went is $45,000.
He Goes to One of the Best Schools in the Country
Barron Trump began his matriculation in 2017 and chose to go to the St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland. The Washington Post reported that the yearly fee of the school is close to $40,000. The school boasts of various facilities, including a library, theatre, fitness room, dance studio, two art studios and two turf fields. Though this is the first time a President’s child is going to the school, St. Andrew’s has a list of impressive alumni and all of the students at the school go on to attend some type of higher education. Well, it’s good to know that Melania and Donald have chosen such a good school for Barron.
The Last Time a ‘First Boy’ Inhabited the White House Was in 1961
After Melania and Barron finally moved into the White House, Barron Trump became the first boy to inhabit the White House in almost 60 years. The last time there was a first boy in the White House was in 1961 when President John F. Kennedy’s son, JFK Jr., lived with him in the White House. Barron made quite a stylish entry into the official residence of the President. He walked across the lawns of the White House in a shirt that read ‘The Expert’.
Melania Plans to Keep Him Away from the Spotlight
The public sees Barron Trump only during first family events and that’s because both Donald and Melania want to keep Barron away from the spotlight. In an interview with ABC in 2016, Melania confessed that though she tells Barron everything, she intends to keep him away from the public eye so that he can have a normal childhood.
Barron Trump Lives a Lavish Life
Barron Trump lives a lavish life but given that he is a Trump child, this fact isn’t very surprising. However, what’s surprising is the lengths to which Melania and Donald go to pamper the youngest Trump. In an interview with Parenting, Melania revealed that Barron had an entire floor to himself when they lived in Trump Towers and if that’s not enough, Barron likes painting on walls, which isn’t a problem because Melania thinks the walls can be painted over anytime. After Barron moved into the White House, though he did not get a private floor, his parents did get a 100-people-staff which makes sure Barron gets what he wants.
If you are thinking Barron Trump gets too much attention for a child, wait till we tell you about what mama Melania uses on her son’s skin to keep it glowing and beautiful. We bet you the revelation will leave you surprised.

Barron May or May Not Have a Nanny
In 2015, during an interview with the People magazine, Melania was asked if she had any nanny who helped her raise Barron. To this question, Melania replied that she likes being a hands-on mother and with Trump away on business trips all the time, she thinks it is even more important that she stays around Barron. A few days later, another interviewer asked Trump the same question and in a very Trump-manner, the President said there was a ‘young woman’ who provided some help to Melania. To this day, we often read articles about how Melania is a hands-on mother who picks up Barron from school and is really devoted to him but with President saying one thing and the first lady another, who knows the truth.
We Know Barron Is Fluent in at Least Two Languages
In an interview given to the GQ magazine in 2016, Melania shared that Barron is fluent in Slovenian and that he converses with his maternal grandparents in Slovenian only.
In 2009, Melania had given an interview to the People magazine in which she had shared that the three-year-old Barron could speak French as well as English and Slovenian. However, two years later, she had appeared on The Joy Behar Show and said Barron speaks two languages fluently: English and Slovenian. She, however, made no mention of his ability to speak French during The Joy Behar Show. So, does Barron Trump speak French?
He Is Good at Sports
Donald Trump believes that his son is a natural athlete. According to the current President, his youngest son could do amazing things when he was just nine-years-old and had only begun to train. The good thing is Barron’s father is well-connected and therefore, the 14-year-old often gets to meet some of the most famous athletes regularly. In April 2017, The Washington Post reported that during their visit to The White House, the Major League Soccer team presented a ball signed by all players to the youngest Trump. Barron even got a chance to play with several team members and apparently, some of the players were mightly impressed by Barron’s knowledge of the sport. In September 2017, CBS Sports reported that Barron had joined Arsenal’s U-12 team and development academy.
He Enjoys Dressing up but He Also Likes Being Comfortable
14-year-olds love sweatpants. However, Barron Trump is not like any other 14-year-old. After all, we are talking about a kid who dressed up in a suit for his sister’s book launch and he was only three then.
In the same interview in which she spoke about her caviar-infused cosmetics products line, Melania also shared with viewers that Barron does not like wearing sweatpants and instead, enjoys wearing suits and even dressing up in a tie from time to time, just like his father. However, the young Trump is not too much into luxuries. Footwear News once reported that Barron enjoys wearing his customized New Balance Sneakers from time to time.
He May Have Been Responsible for the Ban on Vaping
In September 2019, after the country reported close to 450 lung illnesses and many more deaths related to e-cigarettes, Trump announced that the US Food and Drug Administration was planning to make strong recommendations against vaping.
A few weeks before Trump’s announcement, Melania had shown concern regarding the growing popularity of vape and its use among teens and children. Later, during a press conference, when journalists asked Donald Trump why was he in favour of taking strict action against vaping, the President said it was because the First Lady got involved. He further said that they have a son together and therefore, Melania feels very strongly about the subject. Trump’s statement led to speculations with many Trump followers and detractors assuming that Melania was so against vaping as she had caught her son indulging in it.
Melania Once Confessed That She Only Uses Caviar-Infused Moisturizer on Her Son’s Face and Body
Though Melania claims that she plans to keep Barron away from the limelight so that he can have a normal childhood, the kind of luxuries that Baroon enjoys are never available to normal children. Want proof? In 2013, Melania admitted during an interview to ABC News that she applies a caviar-infused moisturizer on Barron after his nightly baths each day. Melania gave this statement while promoting her Caviar Complex C6 skin-care line of products. However, we are certain the tradition lasted only a few days because Melania’s caviar-infused cosmetic line fell apart within a few months of its launch.
Melania Thinks He Is a Mini Version of Donald Trump
Now that we know how much Melania loves pampering her son and dressing him up in suits and applying caviar-infused moisturizer on his skin, it is not very surprising that she also thinks that her son is a mini Donald or a mini version of Donald Trump. Melania has all the wonderful things to say about her son. She once told Parenting that Baron is a very smart boy who much like his father knows what he wants. She also shared with the readers of the magazine that Barron was only 5-years-old, he wanted to be a businessman and a golfer just like his father and that he enjoys drawing and building things and tearing them down.
Donald Trump’s Former Butler Agrees
Melania isn’t the only one who thinks Barron is a mini version of Donald Trump. Tony Senecal, the former butler of the Trump family, agrees. According to Senecal, while he likes all five of Trump’s children, he thinks the youngest Trump is closest to his father. Senecal has his reasons. When Barron was two and a half years old, Senecal had taken him out for breakfast. Barron was sitting in his high chair and enjoying his breakfast when he told Tony: Sit down, we need to talk. According to Senecal, the youngest Trump’s tone was as authoritative at that moment as his father’s.
Donald Trump Shares an Unusual Relationship with Barron
In an interview with Parenting, Melania shared that though Barron and Trump share a great relationship and Trump Senior is a doting father to Barron, Trump never changed his diapers and Melania never expected him to either. She also said that Barron enjoys playing golf with his father and the two enjoying taking vacations together at Mar-a-Lago, the official Trump Florida getaway and going out for dinners.
