BARRON Trump, known in the family as “Little Donald”, is a “smart” 15-year-old soccer player who is “into sports” and already stands at a staggering 6 foot 7 inches.
Melania, 51, gave Barron his nickname shortly after he was born, and has praised her son as a “very strong-minded, very special boy,” adding: “He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants.”
Barron, who “wanted to be like daddy” at the age of five, also loves to build things, pays attention to detail while drawing, and remembers “everything” he sees when he travels, Melania, the wife of former President Donald Trump, revealed in 2015.
And now, the youngest son of the 45th president has reportedly enrolled in a new school.
Detail’s of the former first son’s life are usually kept private but here’s what you should know about Barron.
Where is Barron going to school?
Barron is set to attend Oxbridge Academy, a $34,800-a-year private Palm Beach academy near Mar-a-Lago.
A spokesperson for the elite school, which was founded by a Koch brother, made the announcement last week, as they confirmed Barron will graduate from the class of 2024.
“We look forward to welcoming him into our school and community,” the school’s Director of Advancement Scott Siegfried said, according to People.
The school told parents through an email as they cautioned that the secret service will now have a presence on the 54-acre campus.
“They want to have little impact on our day-to-day operations,” the school said of the secret service. They’ve done this for other former presidents’ kids. They’re fantastic.”
The academy was founded in 2011 by billionaire William Koch.
What is Barron ‘all into’?
Speaking at Liberty University back in 2018, Melania revealed her son to be “all into sports.”
Barron has been spotted wearing an Arsenal Football Club shirt on the White House front lawn.
The former president’s son has also played with Arlington Soccer Association’s under-14 and DC United under-12 teams, SCMP reports.
How tall is Barron?
Barron — who was spotted with his mother in July while they visited New York — towered over his ex-model mother as they left the building, standing at 6 foot 7.
If Barron continues his growth spurt, he could soon be the tallest of the Trump kids by far.
Eric is 6-foot-5-inches while Donald Jr is 6-foot-1, Ivanka is 5-foot-11-inches and Tiffany is 5-foot-8-inches, the International Business Times reported.
It was a rare public appearance for the former first lady who has shunned the limelight since Trump left office.
Melania is 5-foot-11.
Did Barron test positive for Covid?
In October 2020, Trump revealed his son Barron had Covid-19 for “like two seconds” as he declared the pandemic shouldn’t stop kids going to school.
The President gave the update on Barron’s condition to supporters hours after First Lady Melania told how the 14-year-old had tested positive for the virus.
Addressing a rally in Des Moines, Trump also told how he was impressed at just how quickly the teenager had bounced back to health.
“Barron Trump you know he had the corona 19, the China virus. It’s got 20 different names, but to me Corona means Italy,” he said.
“And he had it for such a short period of time, I don’t even think he knew he had it…because they’re young and their immune systems are strong and they fight it off.”
Melania confirmed Barron is “a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms.”
Has Barron appeared on TV?
Barron has appeared on TV alongside his dad on both The Apprentice and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
He made few appearances during his father’s presidential campaign, with Melania saying the couple wished to shield him from the spotlight.
But he did attend Trump’s inauguration becoming a viral hit online after he couldn’t keep his eyes open at his father’s acceptance speech after the 2016 election.
How many siblings does Barron have?
Barron is the former president’s only child with his current wife Melania.
Although his mom Melania never had other children, his dad Donald has four children.
Barron’s half-siblings are Donald Trump Jr, Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump, and Tiffany Trump.
