He resided there throughout JFK’s entire presidency.
Barron Was Not Raised By Nannies
Many children of the rich and famous in the United States spend a great deal of their time with nannies while their parents are off doing their own thing. According to Melania Trump, this was not the case with Barron. She says that she and Donald did not believe that an outsider should help raise their son. Donald believes that you cannot really get to know your children if they spend all of their time with a nanny. According to Melania, she is a hands-on mother. Even when Donald was on the campaign trail, she didn’t require any outside help to assist her in raising their son.
He Was Supportive Of Donald’s Campaign
One of Barron’s favorite things to do is to spend time with his father. While Donald was on the campaign trail, it kept him very busy. Because of his father’s hectic schedule, Barron didn’t see his father very often. Even though running for the President of the United States took away from their bonding time, Barron still supported his father 100 percent. According to Melania, even though Barron missed his father, he understood that his father was doing something very important and he supported Donald and his campaign.
He Made His Television Debut at age 8
Barron made his television debut on his father’s show, The Apprentice in 2014. He was 8 years old at the time and he appeared in the show’s finale. He has always stayed out of the limelight, however, he did appear a few times at the Trump Invitation Grand Prix.
He Is Bilingual
By the time Barron was five years old, he was able to fluently speak two languages. His first language is English and his second is Slovenian. Since he was born, his mother who grew up in Sevnica, spoke to him every day in her native language. By the time he was 5 years old, he was able to speak both languages fluently because he heard them both on a daily basis. His mother believed that it was important that her son could speak to her in her native language.
While Barron was able to stay out of the limelight for years, chances are those days are over. As soon as he becomes the First Son and he moves into the White House, it is very likely that we will all get to know Barron much better.
