Barron Trump has been the subject of a lot of speculations and rumors since he first appeared on the national stage. The country wants to know more about the 10-year-old son of the 45th U.S. president. Well, he is enrolled at a prestigious New York school. This is the main reason behind his mother, Melania Trump’s refusal to move to Washington right away. The first lady wants her child to finish the school year before changing his whole environment.
All of the attention that Barron Trump has received has not been positive. Comedian Rosie O’Donnell, who has spent years feuding with Donald Trump, claimed that Barron behaves as if he is on the autism spectrum. O’Donnell, who got blasted for the comments, went on to reveal that one of her children also has the disorder, and said her intentions were good.
The O’Donnell episode was followed by a viral YouTube video, which featured most of his public appearances. The person behind the video said it was educational and was not meant to hurt the family. After facing legal threats, the uploader deleted the Barron Trump autism video.
During this week’s inauguration, Barron behaved like a bored child, and this was enough to start a new round of rumors and attacks. Comedian and “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich compared the young boy to a future murderer. Controversy ensued, and few Internet memes took a life of their own.
After all of this, Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, has come out to defend Barron against the negativity. The former first daughter wrote on Twitter: “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid.”
The 36-year-old mother of two has earned a lot of praises for her move. After the bitter election, she reminded Trump critics where they should attack him, on policy. She added: “Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids.”
Here is something that America can finally agree on, Barron Trump should be left alone.
