The first lady Melania Trump and her son Barron Trump have finally moved in with President Donald Trump to the White House. The duo had been living at the penthouse in Trump Tower for all these months, but beginning yesterday they started residing at the White House officially.

A welcome development

The fact that the President will finally have his wife and 11-year-old son Barron living with him under the same roof is, without a doubt, a welcome development. According to a report from The Washington Post, the first lady and Barron had to stay back in New York in order to complete the latter's school term.

Barron Trump will enroll at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal School, located in Maryland. The first lady and Barron Trump arrived at the White House lawns in a Marine One and walked the rest of the distance.

The communications director to the first lady, Stephanie Grisham, announced the development through a tweet and accompanied it with the hashtag "#WelcomeHome." The first lady herself took to her Twitter account in order to announce that she had moved to the White House and called it her "new home" in the particular tweet. The fact that the first lady did not reside in the White House for all these months gave rise to a lot of talk among the general public since it was something that was almost unheard of.

Kills the speculations too

The previous living arrangement had also caused a host of speculation not only among the general public but also among public officials, social media users, and gossip columns.

There had been speculation that all was perhaps not well between the first lady and the president, which is why she stayed away from the White House. However, those speculations have now been firmly put to bed following this move.

On the other hand, the more damaging story had been the controversy surrounding the cost of providing security to the first lady and Barron Trump during their stay in New York over the past few months.

Considering the fact that staggering amounts of money were being spent from the government's coffers, it remained a sticking point in the media for months. According to a report by CNN Money, the cost of providing security for the duo at Trump Towers amounted to a jaw-dropping $1 million per day, and needless to say, it created an uproar. Now that the first lady and Barron Trump have moved to the White House, the $1 million a day security expenditure is no longer an issue.
