What You Didn’t Know About America’s New “First Kid”

When your father is a billionaire businessman and the President of the United States, you have to make peace that your life will never be ordinary. So for Barron Trump — the youngest son of Donald and his wife Melania — privilege is just part of the deal. After his father’s presidential win, the young Trump has been placed even more under the microscope, revealing America’s most interesting ‘First Kid’.

He lives ‘home alone’

Melania lets his inner Banksy run wild

Like any other kid, Barron has a creative, wild side. His mother, Melania, has even admitted that her son is something of a graffiti artist. “He draws on the walls in his playroom,” she said. “He is very creative. If you say to a child no, no, no, where does the creativity go?”


He is fluent in more than one language

While most ten-year-olds are still mastering their mother tongue, Barron Trump is already perfectly fluent in not one, but two languages. Thanks to his mom’s European heritage, he can speak Slovenian just as well as English, mastering it as early as age five.

He’s a computer whizz-kid

Despite his linguistic talent, little Trump is also a whizz when it comes to computers. In fact, during his first presidential debate his dad even steered a question about cyber-security towards his son’s ability with technology. “He is so good with these computers, it’s unbelievable,” Donald claimed.

He shares his father’s iron will

Donald Trump is known for his determination and iron-clad personality – traits he’s seemingly passed to his son. Melania described her kid as “a very strong-minded, very special, smart boy. He is independent and opinionated and knows exactly what he wants.”

He’s never been afraid to mince his words

Certainly, ‘little Donald’ seems to take after his father – especially when it comes to speaking his mind. His dad’s former attendant Tony Senecal revealed an interesting story about him, saying “When Barron was two and a half years old, I took his breakfast in to him. He was sitting in his highchair and he looks at me and he said, ‘Tony! Sit down! We need to talk.’”

He loves to tee off

Unlike many kids his age who spend their free time with video games and TV, Barron prefers more refined hobbies. He enjoys playing golf with his father and can often be found perfecting his drive on some of his family’s courses.

He plans to follow his father’s career path

Out of his four siblings, Barron Trump seems most likely to grow up to be just like pop. Since turning just five, he’s made it clear he wants to be a businessman.

You won’t find him wearing a pair of sweats

In many ways, Barron acts older than most kids his age. This applies to his fashion sense as well. “He’s not a sweatpants child,” Melania admitted. “He doesn’t mind putting on [a suit]… and he likes to dress up in a tie sometimes, like Daddy.”


He attends one of America’s most prestigious schools

As a member of one of America’s richest families, Trump Junior receives some of the best education the land can offer – the Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School in Manhattan. Unsurprisingly, good education doesn’t come cheap: the Trumps apparently pay around $45,000 every year in tuition fees.

He’s been in the spotlight since he was eight

Though the growing public interest in little Trump following his dad’s election may seem new, he’s actually used to the life under the spotlight. The aspiring businessman made his TV debut when he was just eight years old, appearing on his father’s series The Apprentice.

He’s named after his father… sort of

Barron’s name is a veiled reference to Donald Trump himself. Reportedly, the President used the alias John Barron when speaking to the press during the ’80s.

The Coast Guard protects his playdates

Since his father won the 2016 Presidential election, the youngest Trump’s life needed to change. In particular, the amount of security following his every move has increased, reports Vortect. Recently, the U.S. Coast Guard was even spotted watching over him and his friends at Mar-a-Lago.
