Barron Trump was spotted for the first time since August as he departed the White House on Tuesday to spend the Thanksgiving holiday at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, with his family. As soon as he stepped out, eagle-eyed viewers noticed one big change about him.
Last year, Barron Trump attended both the arrival of the White House Christmas tree and the pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkey, but this year, he was nowhere to be seen at either event. The 12-year-old emerged on Tuesday, however, to join his parents for their trip to Mar-a-Lago, which has affectionately been dubbed the “Winter White House.”
Barron Trump was spotted at the White House on Tuesday for the first time since August as he joined his parents as they boarded Marine One in route to Mar-a-Lago for Thanksgiving.
President Donald Trump’s youngest child was last seen in August, when he joined his parents for a flight back from Bedminster, New Jersey, to Washington D.C. as his summer break came to an end. He and mom Melania Trump boarded Marine One Tuesday afternoon as his dad answered questions from the press.
The 12-year-old was wearing dark pants, a dark jacket and light dress shirt. Barron Trump was no where to be seen earlier in the day when President Trump pardoned the Thanksgiving turkey. He was also absent from Monday’s arrival of the White House Christmas tree. He attended both ceremonies last year.
Melania Trump followed her son on to the presidential helicopter wearing the same $9,400 Dior coat and black stiletto boats she wore to the turkey pardoning earlier in the day. Barron attends St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, and is on his Thanksgiving break. Unlike his older siblings, Barron avoids the spotlight and his parents’ public life.

While Barron still has his adorable baby face and his father’s light hair, something big has changed since the last time we saw him: Barron is now as tall as his 5’11” former model mother. He is nearly as tall as his 6’3” presidential father. After a few more months, he might just have him beat.
The Trumps have done a good job of keeping their young son sheltered from the prying and judgemental eyes of the press in order to allow him to have as much of a normal childhood as humanly possible, even though his father is the leader of the free world.
Still, he has been the subject of unwarranted attacks from those on the political left who are not content to allow a 12-year-old any peace. Last month, certain radical leftists even suggested that Barron ought to be deported after his father floated the idea of ending birthright citizenship.
It should be noted that when former President Barack Obama was in office, his daughters Malia and Sasha were never treated this way. In fact, there appeared to be some unwritten rule at the time that the press could not print any information about the girls which painted them in a negative light, despite the fact that they both exhibited questionable behavior while living in the White House. Barron has done no such thing, and still, the media finds ways to attack him.
However, at just 12-years-old, Barron Trump is already blossoming into quite the handsome young man. He appears to be handling the stresses of life in the White house tremendously well for someone in middle school. Show him your support by sharing this article.
