10-year-old Barron Trump has found himself in an avalanche of chaos since his father began running for President of the United States. It got worse in the months leading up to the 2016 election in which his father beat Hillary Clinton. The son of Donald and #Melania Trump has been mostly shielded from the contentious atmosphere of the politics, but he's inherently felt the sting of its rippling effects.
First lady and first son remain in NYC
Many have wondered if the president-elect, his wife, and son would be moving to the White House after Trump is sworn in as president. Sources tell The New York Post that Barron Trump and his mother will not be moving to the White House after his father is inaugurated on January 20, 2017. This may not come as a complete surprise, what with the Trumps largely favoring the gleaming high-rise known as Trump Tower versus the less flamboyant -- yet still luxurious -- White House.
Another factor taken into consideration for not uprooting Barron from New York to Washington, D.C. was to keep his life as normal as possible while his father serves as the nation's president. The youngest child of the president-elect loves the private school he attends on Manhattan's Upper West Side known as Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School.
Melania and Barron have formed a stronger bond throughout Mr. Trump's campaign. Melania and her husband want to maintain the lifestyle they're accustomed to and minimize change as much as possible. Melania doesn't depend on nannies to assist her with raising Barron. One thing that will change for Barron when his father holds office, is Barron will be transported to school in an armored vehicle. A team of Secret Service agents will "swoop down" on the school every morning to make sure it's safe for him.
Melania Trump will go to White House when needed
Another source tells The Post that Melania will commute to the White House when needed. This might be for special appearances, formal occasions, or being present to greet foreign powers and guests. She's "fully on board" to do what's needed to support her husband and will do what's required as a first lady.
For Donald Trump's part, he'll still work out of Trump Tower as President of the United States. This has posed quite a challenge for the Secret Service and NYPD Police Department, but they've put tight security in place around Midtown. Its been a headache for local businesses and residents around the area, however.
The fact that Barron Trump is staying in Manhattan will lessen his anxieties about the big changes set to occur when his father takes office. At least he'll have some semblance of normalcy. #barrontrump #News
