His knack for suits captured our attention, and his facial expressions during the inauguration captured our hearts. Barron Trump, the youngest of President Donald Trump’s five children at only 11 years old, serves our country as the first son. But just who is this boy that sports a suit and stands behind our nation’s President?
Is he an adorkable Michael Cera type, or more of a creepy, privileged Brock Turner type? Just as we did with Mike Pence, let’s take a closer look at 15 surprising facts about Barron Trump that redefine the first son.
15. He had his own floor in the Manhattan Penthouse
While the New York real estate market has a reputation for being brutal, Barron Trump had a living space most New Yorkers could only have in their dreams. Melania Trump told Parenting magazine that the boy lived on an entire floor of the family’s Manhattan penthouse. He was also in charge of decorating it, which means that when he was younger, he drew on the walls and they just painted over them.
As of mid-June, however, Melania and Barron are living in the White House. It’s unclear whether he’ll enjoy the same amount of living space in Washington as he did in Manhattan. As we’ll discuss later, Barron is the first son to live in the White House since 1963.
