What’s Really Going On With Melania And Barron Trump?
Barron William Trump is the fifth and youngest child of Donald Trump, and the only offspring shared between Donald and Melania Trump. While there has often been speculation about Trump’s relationships with his kids, and questionable remarks in regard to his relationship with daughter Ivanka, there is little known about Barron’s relationship with his father.
On the other hand, there is convincing evidence that Barron and his mother have a sweet relationship. Being well aware of the intensity of being in the public eye, Melania tried her best to keep Barron out of the spotlight growing up. However, he has been seen more often during his father’s presidency. Barron is also the only Trump child to live in the White House with his parents, which is not much of a surprise because he is a minor. Living as an only child (he is also the only biological child of Melania) has most likely given him a chance to grow closer to his mom. Here’s what’s really going on with Melania and Barron Trump.
Melania Trump is a very hands-on mom
Donald Trump made it perfectly clear that he had other things to focus on than raising his children, like building a multi-billion dollar empire. “I’m not going to be doing the diapers, I’m not going to be making the food, I may never even see the kids,” Trump said in a 2005 CNN interview while discussing his new marriage to Melania Trump. He said his lack of involvement would mostly be because Melania would be an “unbelievable mother.”
However, Donald had also previously taken a hands-off approach with his other kids, as noted by Tiffany Trump’s mother and Donald’s ex wife, Marla Maples. “Her daddy is a good provider with education and such, but as far as time, it was just me,” Maples told People about Tiffany’s childhood. “Her father wasn’t able to be there with day-to-day skills as a parent. He loves his kids. There’s no doubt. But everything was a bit of a negotiation.”
During the 2005 interview, Melania smiled as Trump said he would be leaving the bulk of the work for her. She explained why in a 2012 interview. “It’s very important to know the person you’re with. And we know our roles,” she explained.
Melania is clearly a dedicated mom — so dedicated, in fact, that she wants to be the only one raising her son.
Barron Trump has never had a traditional nanny
Another thing Melania Trump and Donald Trump can agree on about raising their only son is the level of involvement they want from people outside of their family unit, even if that means Melania shoulders more duties than her husband. The couple opened up to People in 2015 about their decision to not hire a nanny for Barron Trump. “We keep it down to a minimum,” Trump said. “If you have too much help, you don’t get to know your children.”
Before entering the White House, the Trumps did employ staff to cook and clean, but they never hired a stereotypical nanny whose sole job was to watch Barron. “I like to be hands-on. I think it’s very important,” Melania added. Melania tried to support her son as much as possible, even if that meant sitting with him at the dinner table assisting with homework or helping him study for a test. She also noted that she makes it a priority to be around as much as possible since her husband was often traveling.
It is quite possible that Melania’s hands-on approach helped to forge a strong bond between her and Barron.
Melania Trump and Barron Trump have a very trusting relationship
Even as a young teenager, Barron Trump is much taller than both his parents, but that doesn’t stop Melania Trump from keeping a protective eye on her son. According to body language expert Bruce Durham, Barron and his mother have “a true mother and son bond” (per Express).
“Melania is the guiding influence. Her left hand on her son’s back says ‘it’s ok, come on you, can do this,'” Durham said while observing a photograph of the pair. “And her right hand palm down in front of Barron says ‘calm down, I have got you.” According to Durham, Melania’s public display of guidance is an extension of how she supports Barron through life’s challenges at home behind closed doors.
While Melania will likely always keep a close eye on her son, Durham says Barron’s body language suggests that he is learning to be more independent of his mother — and Melania is agreeable to that.
Melania Trump trusts Barron Trump to handle himself unsupervised
It might be possible that Barron Trump will never be completely unsupervised in his life now that he’s the son of a president, but his mother has let him off the leash a bit, exemplifying their trusting relationship. According to the Daily Mail, Melania Trump decided to join her husband on a trip to Iraq to visit U.S. troops for three days in 2018. That meant that, yes, Barron was completely parentless at Mar-a-Lago, which sounds like a teenage dream. However, it’s likely the Secret Service was there keeping a sharp eye on him. Even still, it was probably a huge step in Barron gaining his independence.
Body language expert Bruce Durham told Express that in a photograph he analyzed, it was clear that Melania is all for loosening the leash around her son. In the picture, Melania is not grabbing her son’s hand, but instead, approving of the confidence he displays. “No hand contact needed this time – just direct eye contact and the smile of a mother that is proud of her son,” Durham said.
Melania Trump tries to morally guide Barron
Even if Melania Trump is slowly giving Barron Trump his independence, she still makes sure she guides him down the right path. Her initiative as first lady is Be Best, which focuses on teaching kids social, mental, and physical health with an emphasis on well-being, online safety, and opioid abuse. While speaking about how she hopes her project can positively affect kids during a town hall at Liberty University in Virginia, Melania happily used her son as an example of the morals she wants to instill in kids.
“I teach him what is right, what is wrong,” she said, according to CBS News. Noting that her initiative focuses on social media, she said Barron does not yet use social media. “He’s not interested in it. He’s all into sport,” she added.
Even with the unpredictability that comes with being members of a presidential family, it’s clear Melania and Barron will always have a caring relationship. “You know, those hours with your child are really important ones,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “Even if it’s just the two of you, being quiet in the car together.”

Melania Trump is world famous now, as the wife of the President of the United States. First Lady is a busy job, despite not being a paid role for women married to the president.
However, former-model Melania has claimed there is one job that will always be the most important to her.
The First Lady was born in Slovenia, and moved to the US to pursue modelling at 18.
She had Barron in March 2006, the year after she married Donald, and she was 36 at the time.
Melania told Parenting: “I am a full-time mom; that is my first job. The most important job ever.”

At the time of giving the interview Melania was running her own jewellery line.
She revealed that even though she had interesting as a sideline, parenting Barron was most important.
Melania said: “When he is in school I do my meetings, my sketches, and everything else.”
Shockingly, to many mothers, Melania revealed she was happy to let Barron draw on his bedrooms walls, even in their £10.7m New York apartment.
Melania told the publication: “His imagination is growing and important.
“He draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over.
“One day he was playing bakery and he wrote Barron’s Bakery on the wall with crayons. He is very creative, if you say to a child no, no, no, where does the creativity go?”
She went on: “I think it’s important to give a child room to make mistakes in order to learn. Mistakes build wings so later in life they can fly and go on their own.”
Yesterday Melania Trump wore a black midi dress and £560 heels in Washington.
She was with Donald to pay her respects at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine.
Melania opted for a muted look as she joined the US President in Washington.
The US First Lady posted a selection of pictures from the shrine on her Instagram.

Sources revealed that Melania Trump and Barron were taken to a bunker with Donald Trump last week.
Donald was taken to an an underground bunker amid protests yesterday.
A White House Official and law enforcement source told CNN the president was there for little under an hour.
The protests were a result of the death of George Floyd, a black man, died after a white police officer held him to the ground in Minneapolis.
Melania Trump adviser reveals whether ex-first lady would return to White House if Donald runs for president in 2024
AN ADVISER to Melania Trump has claimed that she will be “right there” beside Donald if he runs again in 2024.
The former First Lady could also have an impact on whether he eventually makes the plunge and goes for a heavily hinted 2024 bid.
Trump has continued to hold rallies across the country as he endorses candidates for the 2022 midterms and pushes the unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud in 2020.
Melania has rarely been pictured outside of their Florida and New Jersey homes since leaving the White House in January.
She is reportedly focusing on her family, especially her son Barron who is now attending school in Palm Beach.
“She’s disappeared completely off the radar screen,” one person close to Trump told Politico.
“She’s not seen anywhere.”
Yet some close to the family believe she would support Trump in 2024, even if she has recently shunned the limelight.
“If [Trump] runs, she will be right there,” an adviser told Politico.

“She’s not going to have her own rallies. But did she ever?”
Melania could also have a big impact on whether Trump decides to run in the first place.
“The only thing that Trump cares about these days is golf and Melania. And if she doesn’t want him to run, then it’s going to be pushing a big rock up the hill,” Politico was told.
“I don’t think politics is her thing. She doesn’t like the game.”
Melania’s support for her husband’s venture into politics and her support of his policies has been debated since he first announced his 2016 bid.
She appeared infrequently on the campaign trail and kept a smaller public profile compared to other First Ladies.
A new book from her former Chief of Staff Stephanie Grisham also claims to reveal the disinterest Melania took in Trump’s reelection campaign.
MELANIA ‘SLEPT ON ELECTION NIGHT’
In the upcoming book, I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House, Grisham claims that Melania slept on election night as votes came in.
“I knocked a few times, quietly at first but louder at each attempt,” wrote Grisham.
“I finally opened the bedroom door only to find that Melania Trump was sound asleep.
“I knew by now how much sleep meant to her, but still, I couldn’t imagine being asleep at a time like that,” she added.
“Maybe she thought that someone would wake her up if Trump won.”
Melania was awake later in the night and stood on stage with Trump as he declared he had won the election despite Biden’s lead.
A former aide told Politico that she “took a nap” as it was expected election night would go late.
MELANIA SLAMS BOOK CLAIMS
Melania Trump’s office has already blasted claims made in Grisham’s book after an extract was published on Monday.
The office accused Grisham of trying “to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behavior in the White House.”
The comment on “failed personal relationships” was met with controversy, given reports about Grisham’s past relationship with former Trump aide Max Miller.
Politico in July claimed that three people familiar with the incident said the relationship with Miller “ended when he pushed her against a wall and slapped her in the face in his Washington apartment after she accused him of cheating on her.”
Miller has denied the claims.
In Grisham’s book, she’s reported to reveal secrets about Trump that even Melania doesn’t know.
In it, she is said to liken Melania to “doomed French queen” Marie Antoinette for her response to the Capitol riot on January 6.
According to Grisham, Melania replied “no” when asked if she wanted to tweet that “peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence.”
Melania was helping to prep for a photoshoot of a rug she had selected at the time of the siege, according to Grisham.
Hours later, Grisham would resign from her role.
An ousted former aide shockingly claimed last year that the former FLOTUS was “counting every minute” until Donald left the White House – which the Trump administration blasted as a “pathetic” rumor.
However, close friends of Trump’s wife have said she has no plans to divorce him.
Rumors about Donald and Melania Trump’s marriage have been slammed as “despicable” by former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who claims it’s a way of trying to “disparage” the ex-president.

The Trump aide also blasted claims that Melania doesn’t want to return to her role as First Lady and wants to stay in Florida if her husband runs and wins again in 2024.
Spicer told The Sun: “I think the reports are absolutely abhorrent and disgusting. I have seen them together for six years.
“I don’t have any insight into their personal relationship but seeing people speculate on the state of their marriage is absolutely deplorable and despicable.”
He railed that some people “cannot help themselves” as they try to “disparage” Trump.
Speculation has been mounting for months about whether Trump will attempt a return to the White House.
After the news broke that Facebook banned Trump from the platform for at least two years, he released a statement implying his return to the presidency.
He said: “Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business!”
