Barron Trump, the 11-year old son of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania faced social media backlash regarding his clothes. The 11-year-old was hustled by a news article from Daily Caller. The scathing news piece written by Ford Springer for Daily Caller attacked Barron for his casual clothing during his public appearances. However, many celebrities, political figures, including Chelsea Clinton stood up for the youngest Trump child, requesting the media to keep Barron out of the negative limelight.

The First Lady has now thanked Chelsea on Twitter for defending Barron.

What happened?

On Monday, August 21, Daily Caller published the story that said it was high time he dressed like he was in the White House. The article criticized Barron for wearing a red T-Shirt and shorts while boarding the Air Force One on Sunday, August 20.

Casually dressed?

The writer wrote that while the First Lady and the President were always dressed impeccably, but Barron was dressed as if he was going to a movie. His fault, if someone can call it that, was to dress in a red T-Shirt with the words “On your mark tiger shark” printed on it, khaki shorts, and loafers. Springer asked the preteen to “dress the part” before stepping out in public, as that is his only responsibility for being the President’s son.

Chelsea Clinton comes in support of Barron

To condemn this shameful act of targeting a child, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton came to Barron’s defense. Clinton - daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - tweeted in Barron’s support. She said that it was high for everyone including the media to leave him alone, and let him have a normal and private childhood.

In a separate follow up tweet Clinton stated that he was a just a child and should not be shamed online or in real life by anyone just because of their political beliefs.

Melania responds to Chelsea

Following Chelsea’s support, First Lady Melania Trump also responded with a tweet, thanking Chelsea Clinton for supporting her son, Barron.

Melania Trump also pointed out that it is important to support the choices a child makes and let them be themselves for a while. She followed the tweet with the hashtag: #StopChildhoodBullying.
